"Cootes" was a successful show and I was grateful for all the people who came out to see my work. This show is roughly a year and a half in the making and I feel it's some of my best work. It depicts "Cootes Paradise", a particularly interesting part of Hamilton nature and it's relationship with the urban city around it. It ran until Nov 12/2016 at the Focus Gallery in Hamilton. If your up on James Street, don't forget to stop by the Focus Gallery. Also a few pieces of the work were displayed at Creative Works in Westdale shortly after.
