On the weekend I took part in Art In The Garden, an exhibition that I have organized off and on since 1999 in my own private garden. In 2009 the event moved to the UBC Botanical Gardens. All artwork was either inspired by the garden, made for the garden, or from the garden. For the show I developed a new series of digital collages, Every Leaf Has A Story. All insects were photographed at the UBC Spencer Entymological Museum.
Framed 16"x20''s are available for $200. Unframed 24"x36" giclee prints available for $400 (available in glossy, satin and matte fine art papers, as well as satin or matte canvas).
