I have seen this print at the Fall Gallery in Vancouver. Are you a local? Do I know you possibly?

hmm I hope it wasn't a print! It was a painting I did for a show at the fall about a year ago....I moved to montreal about 6 months ago though.

oh, you know, It very well may have been a painting. I definitely remember the image though. There was another I noticed in your gallery, the girl with the stars at the back of her head I have seen there too. The time sounds about right.

Hope you don't take offence at the Bioshock association, but this looks like what would happen if a Big Daddy somehow joined the Saturnine!

Wow, it blows my mind that you did this with acrylics. I keep meaning to try out acrylic but the mental hurdles set by working in oils so long has kept me from it so far :p

Beautiful work as always. This piece really gets to me more than your usual work though. Very elegant, peaceful, & threatening.
