Over the last two years, I have been immersed full-time in a Canada-wide project called Canada 150 Mural Mosaic. This fantastic project brings together upwards of 150 Canadian communities to paint small 4 inch square "tiles" that combine to create big, colourful mosaics to commemorate Canada's 150th birthday! If you haven't seen these murals, I highly recommend you do, as they are pretty magical! The best place to see them is on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/canada150mosaic.


Each town or city's mural is a rail car, that when connected to all the others (digitally) will form a long train which will unite Canada from coast to coast.  See more at https://www.facebook.com/canada150mosaic.


Just a handful of the hundreds of 4 inch square tiles I've painted for the Canada 150 Mural Mosaic project.  These are in the Victoria BC mural, far left below.  


From left to right:  Victoria BC, Tecumseh ON, Signature Mural, Baie St. Paul PQ. See all the completed murals (and follow the progress across Canada!) at https://www.facebook.com/canada150mosaic.

Some of the 75 mural completed murals.  300 to 700 painted tiles comprise each mural, most of which are painted by community residents.  

Not only am I thrilled to be a part of this historic project (it may be the biggest mural undertaking in the world), but I get to fulfill my dream of being a full-time artist while doing so!  Plus, I get to work with a passionate and talented group of people.
