The Girl From Away


A few months ago Nadyne Kasta moved to P.E.I and opened a little shop in an old school house in North Milton. The shop sells prints and other contemporary goodies designed by herself and a couple of her most creative friends. She also began a blog about Prince Edward Island as experienced by a person “from away”.

In January The Girl From Away made a blog post about Timber, an art installation I made for the Charlottetown Farmers Market. Soon after that she contacted me about making art for her shop. The prints I made for her are titled The Coast, The Garden, The Forest.

While making this body of work I found out my grandmother taught in the old school house for several years in the early 1970’s. 

NSCAD student wins RBC Art Competition


A few months ago I applied to this RBC call for submissions and was overwhelmed when I found out I had made the short list of three artists. I did not end up receiving the finial $10,000 commission but I couldn’t be happier for the artist who did. Here’s to the talented Laura Jean Forester! 

Y-Level CatalogueEyelevel Gallery (Halifax) curated a group exhibit for emerging artists which included a call for submissions. My art submission was declined. A few weeks later Eyelevel Gallery put out a submissions call for written entries to be published in the catalogue that would accompany the exhibit. I wrote a short piece about what it’s like to be an emerging artist receiving letters of rejection on a semi-regular basis.They accepted it. I was one of 3 non-exhibiting artists chosen for publication. The irony of this acceptance letter made it even greater.

Gazing / Grazing Holstein 
Pencil and paper, 20” x 24”

I only drew the black spots of the cows to see if the shapes would end up reading as cows or as a page of black spots, I hoped for the latter. The second drawing is a little more obscure than the first, which I like. The next drawing won’t include a cow in the foreground, that seems to always be the cow that gives it away.
