Discovering Partnership Through Art

"We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams." - Willy Wonka

I love the concept of trading and exchanging the things we create with our hands and minds.

It’s a way to connect with other artists and craftspeople who may work in a different medium or other facets of art like decorative arts, photography, pottery, ceramics, or glass works. It’s also a way for me to engage with members of my community.

Collaborating on ideas sparks my creativity and adds fresh perspective. These trades are really satisfying and fun for everyone involved.

Partnership Through Art

Talk to me about a partnership idea. 

What I bring

Let’s talk! If you like what I do and you want to suggest a partnership, please reach out. My process is the same as with a commissioned piece. We’ll discuss your ideas for a painting and I’ll get to work on my process.

What you bring

From our initial chat, we’ll get an idea of how the exchange will take shape and probably much like my process, your piece for me will start to evolve.

What you see pictured is an art partnership I completed with Anna and Amber, two amazing quilters here in Ontario. The result was a beautiful quilt they made for me, and paintings I made for each of them. Please check out more of their work on Instagram at:
