Lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Primarily interested in the following: a) Visual and textual lines; b) the antiseptic tempered by a quiver of the handmade; and c) the diagrammatic and/or explanatory, especially when cloaked in ostensible self-importance without necessarily being true, serious business. Adherence to stringent procedural methods allows for an iterative exploration of the above concepts ad infinitum [read more].

I’ve got a card in the Carded! trading card art show this year. Featuring the work of fifty artists reproduced on trading cards, it’s an annual event and is always a fun evening of mingling and trading for your favourite cards.
I’ll have some drawings in the SCIENCE FAIR.
UPDATE: Art show is free, and exhibits in the lower lobby are on show until the end of July. Tickets to see the bands in the planetarium are $15 in advance, or $20 at the door. On sale through Eventbrite, and at Zulu Records, Neptune Records, and They Live Video.
I’m going to have some drawings in the Art Waste Group Show at Gallery Gachet in Vancouver, Canada. Opening reception is June 5, 2014 at 7pm. The show will be on view until Sunday, June 8. Gallery Gachet is at 88 East Cordova Street, Vancouver, BC V6A 1K3.
Text I wrote for the Whispers Project on the side of Little Mountain Gallery forms the title for a verbatim theatre project, which runs November 14-16, 2013 at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House in Vancouver, Canada:
Run: November 14, 15 at 8p.m., November 16 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Star Star Theatre is pleased to present the premiere of a new play titled This Might Feel Like Home, curated by Mika Laulainen and Simone Brodie. This community engaged verbatim theatre project has been funded by the Neighbourhood Small Grants Program and will be playing at the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 E Broadway. Admission is by Donation. What makes a place a home? Is it art on the walls, your coffee pot, the smell of your old books? Coming home to a specific person or your two rescue cats? This Might Feel Like Home celebrates the Mount Pleasant community using real words from local residents. As diverse as we are, we all have something in common, something that truly makes Vancouver special…..We all choose to make this place our home.
Verbatim theatre, or documentary theatre, uses the exact words of interviewed individuals to create a theatre piece that is not only about a certain group of people, but also by that same group. This Might Feel Like Home explores the ideas of home, community, and housing in Mount Pleasant through the stories of six very different people who share our community with us.
Directed by Simone Brodie, This Might Feel Like Home features the talents of numerous emerging actors who make Mount Pleasant their home, including Erika Babins, Randi Edmundson, Mika Laulainen, Jonathan Mason, and Xavier de Salaberry. This Might Feel Like Home will run from November 14th to 16th at 8 p.m. with a matinee on November 16th at 2 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 E Broadway. For more information please contact Mika Laulainen.
An image-text pairing from my Excerpts series is included in CARDED! again this year. This is always a really fun event, featuring the work of 50 artists in trading card form sold in $5 random packs. For one night only mingle and enjoy refreshments while trading cards. Each card is also displayed framed on the gallery walls.
I have contributed text to another Whispers Project mural, which reads: “If only the colors were a little different, this might feel like home.” This Whisper can be seen alongside other mural and graffiti art upon the sides of Little Mountain Gallery in Vancouver, Canada.
Whispers Project is a series of typographic murals located around Vancouver, and is coordinated by Eli Horn and Jordan Bent in collaboration with local writers.
