Distillery Art Market A Success!

Distillery Art Market Booth

The weather was nice, the Jazz Festival was in full swing, and over a dozen artists set up shop on Gristmill Lane in Toronto’s Historic Distillery District. It was a great experience, and getting to meet all sorts of interesting people was the best part. I hope to see some of you again in August at the Oakville Art in the Park show!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by, to Artscape for organizing the event, Rick Brazeau for generously lending me his tent and equipment, and of course to my friends who generously volunteered their time and vehicles to help make my first art festival a success!

MOO Business Cards have Arrived!

MOO business cards

My old business cards were starting to feel a bit dated, so I decided to create a new set of business cards that better represented my current focus of abstract photography. Here’s the catch: I wanted to have a different picture on the back of each card. After doing a lot of research, I decided to go with MOO.

MOO is one of the few (if not only) places that offers business cards with a silky, matte laminate finish and lets you put a different image on the back of each card. And these cards aren’t the usual flimsy scrap of card stock you may be used to; these cards are thick and durable! As a bonus, the paper is sourced from sustainable forests and is Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF).

Let’s see what’s in the box!

Each piece will be available for purchase.
