Confederation Park Project
In 2017 myself and artist Bruno Hernani were hired by the City of Regina for the Confederation Park Project. The project required us to work with 40 high school students from 7 different school, to create 4 murals which were installed around power boxes in Confederation Park. We began with pencil on paper, moved to acrylic on canvas, then digitized everything, where we used Photoshop to stitch the pieces together, and finally they were printed on a durable outdoor plastic. Thematically, we asked students to consider 4 voices that were not heard in the confederation process of Canada. These include the voices of First Nations, the environment, immigrant peoples, and women.

The Kahte-ayak Residency, was a part of the Kahte-ayak Project, at the First Nations University. The residency had seven artists collaborating and working on their own to paint tipi liners. The tipi's. located on the front lawn of the First Nations University of Canada, were to represent the resiliency, shared history, and diversity of the First Nations people living on Turtle Island.
