Art Sale!

Swizzle Studio is making room for new projects and new ideas. We have paintings, drawings and textile creations we’d rather have someone enjoy than keep in storage.

During the month of May, we will be selling this work at lowered prices to our collectors and fans. We have been unpacking work from the last 20 years (!) and photographing it.

We will be posting works for sale on our Instagram account @swizzlestudio

We intend to have an Open House in our Toronto studio later this month. Details to follow.

If there are specific pieces you are interested in, or to book a private showing, contact us at studio [at] swizzle.ca

Telephone Line

I drew these 31 bird groups for Pittsburgh’s Fun-A-Day project. The idea behind Fun-A-Day is for artists to do something creative (not work-related) every day for a month.

The self-imposed rules of my project, “Telephone Line” were that the wire had to run the entire length on the month, the background could not touch the side edges, the wire could only be used by city birds (sparrows and starlings), the birds could be in peril but not harmed, and the backgrounds should show a lot of variety. I started out with buildings I liked, but soon jokes and surrealism made its way into the project.

You can view the complete “Telephone Line” on Instagram (@swizzlestudio) or at the bottom of this post.

“Telephone Line” ran the length of the gallery at Fun-A-Day Pittsburgh’s show.
