Time For A New Logo
Since the launch of my website, I have tried to brand my art alongside my passion to promote mental health awareness. Initially, I chose the Japanese Divinity ‘Ojizo-sama’ to represent my work, however, more recently I felt there was something missing.
Gary from naturaloutlook.com (a Digital Design / Branding Specialist) came up with my new logo: The head represents ‘being’ – mind and body; the large square background – my art; and the multi-dimensional squares – the complexity of ‘being’ – subtly drawing on their irregular alignment, as with life and mental health.

A big thankyou to everyone who attended my solo gallery show ‘BEING’. All the hard work paid off and the event proved a hugh success, with over 120 people attending the open evening and several art pieces sold. More importantly, the gallery show helped raise awareness towards The Hincks-Dellcrest Centre and Youth Mental Health Awareness, with a portion of proceeds being donated to the organisation.
Many people commented* that they really enjoyed the evening, there was a great atmosphere, thanks in part to a classy event space (Bizune), great music (DJ Flohback), and delicious food (Yorkshire Pudding & Toshi Sushi), which all came together to show my art work in the best light, so a big thankyou to everyone involved.
A great milestone and start of new adventures to come. Thank you so much for everyone who came and showed support. I am so grateful and appreciative of those who were always there and helped me along the way (I can not express this enough).
“What People Are Saying.”

Canada Post Mental Health Awareness Stamp in Print.
I got word recently that the winning stamp for the mental health awareness stamp competition will be out on September 6th. Although I did not win the main stamp design, all of the the finalists designs were printed on the outer booklet and annual Canada Post stamp magazine (see images to right). Also I have decided to donate the money won from being a finalist in the competition towards the Eating Disorders Clinic here in Toronto.
Thank you again for those who supported and voted for my stamp design (left):
