Knife and Tape
I will be setting up a work space on the 4th floor of the Gladstone to demonstrate my processes on Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th of May. I will be working on a new piece over the course of these two afternoons and will be happy to chat about my various techniques. It was a great opening but it was over way too soon, and I know that many of you would have liked to come by. Here is another chance to stop in to see the show, hang out with me and learn a bit about how I make the works.

this year ends...
Hello everyone. I have spent some time updating the website after some new additions from this past year that got left behind. I have a slew of new work in the collage section of my illustrations, and added in some adored work I did for a few albums that came out this year and can be found in commissions. I also have a new series in progress that you can find in the photographic series section entitled "the line from here to here" I hope you enjoy.
Happy New Year!

Beyond Imaginings. Meet Becky Comber
Here is a blog posting from the curator of the Harbourfront exhibition introducing me.
Beyond Imaginings: Eight artists encounter Ontario's Greenbelt
I have been awarded a commission to walk on the Bruce Trail and document the Greenbelt from my perspective.
"This summer, Harbourfront Centre plans to unveil a new large-scale photographic exhibition along Toronto's waterfront. The subject: Ontario's Greenbelt.
Eight emerging contemporary photographers will create large scale images that will document their exploration of Ontario's Greenbelt. Each photographer has been chosen to explore three specific areas of importance to the Greenbelt: Working the Land, Natural Beauty and People of the Greenbelt."
