My adventures and work, written here.

Whitney Museum of American Art – New York

The restaurant at the Whitney Museum, ‘Untitled’, had chalk walls that were desperately in need of revamping.  Together with chef Chris Bradley, who runs the place, a plan was conceived around the idea of empty frames that echoed the ‘untitled’ theme…works of art without names…beautiful frames without works of art in them….

Harlem Shambles

There’s a great butcher in Harlem – all of their meat is sourced from small farms in the state of NY and raised in an ethical manner.  Their walls were somewhat bare, so I suggested adding some chalkboards!

Holt Renfrew Cafe

Chalkboard work at the new cafe at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale, Toronto.  The imagery and lettering were to represent the experience of dining at Canada’s leading luxury department store.

Business Cards

New business cards designed for relocating to New York.  A layout was first created in black ink on cotton paper.  The original was sent to the engraver in London, England – Smythson of Bond Street created a hand-engraved copper plate from the original draft.  The finished product is stunning;  an oversized card (10cm x 6.5cm) with gold ink on 700gsm Nile blue stock, with hand-rounded corners and 23kt gold hand-gilded edges.
