This 120sq metre mural was created onsite in collaboration with Jarett Sitter, at Calgary's Currie Barracks. This parade square used to be a solemn ceremonial space for the military. Now most of the buildings that line its perimeter have been converted into schools, and this space acts is a vibrant play zone for today’s students.
Done in collaboration with Canada Lands and Honeycomb Solutions

This mural is a gift those many children who brightened up the sidewalks with chalk drawn messages of hope during the initial lockdown. We painted a collection of “colouring pages” that can be coloured in with chalk, washed clean by the rain and snow, and then coloured in all over again. There are half a dozen of these colouring pages, spaced out so classrooms of children can engage with them while being socially distanced. It’s been dubbed Calgary's biggest colouring page.
