Friday, June 5th was the grand opening of my first solo art show. It was held at the 416 Gallery in Toronto, ON. and was a huge success! I have never felt so much love and support for my work all at once, and it was truly inspiring for me moving forward with my art/business.
The ALL MY SHIT: Pyrography Showcase featured 100+ pieces of work from my first 6 years of woodburning. I broke the gallery down into eras and collections of my work to help walk people through my journey to this point.
I also had a wall dedicated to a dream team of collaborations I did with other artists. Working on nine individual pieces with artists from all different backgrounds and styles really helped broaden my abilities.

Big thanks again to everyone who came out and helped make this night happen. Extra special thanks to Jimmy Chiale for sharing his home and running the bar/music/security, Jon Nuss from Social Images Photography for documenting the night, and Beth from the Birch and Baker for the AMAZING custom cake sculpture!! That cake was pretty much my favourite piece of art in a gallery filled with my life's work haha.
