CUSTOM APPAREL

I took Printmaking I at the University of Saskatchewan in the 2011-2012 school year. After one unit of silkscreen, I was obsessed, and I quickly went on to research how I could do it on fabric, and then figured out how I could do it at home. I built my own silkscreen and started making Over the Air t-shirts in the conference room at the Art Gallery of Swift Current during my lunch breaks.

 

I currently have an amateur printing set-up in my basement, and I work with stencils so I can easily reprint runs of shirts without having to re-develop the screen. I do every step by hand -- the stencil-cutting, the screen-printing, and the heat-setting -- and I often work from an image I design myself.

I most enjoy doing shirts meant for band merch, and I've had the honour of working with artists like League of Wolves, Megan Nash, the Moon Runners, and Bears in Hazenmore.

I also design clothing for professional print runs, having done so for Jeffery Straker and Eagle Creek Veterinary Services, among many others!

Band merch and design, screen printing, digital painting, wood burning, acrylic & charcoal.
