I think you are doing such amazing work and are talented and I am deeply grateful for everything.
We all learned something and you made us laugh. It was great!

Working with Louie has been a pleasure. A chance to do something new!

During an artist talk, I'll describe some of my work and the historic context it was made in: this could be the history of oil painting, queer rights, or disability advocacy. Each talk is catered to the venue and audience. I'm known for explaining art and political histories with humour and unique insight. Artist talks are a chance to be curious together.
Commissions & Sales
I rarely do commissions because of the long and exhaustive process that goes into my artistic style. However, for the right project and right person, I'm certainly interested. I also have finished works available for sale. Please contact me for a digital list of works available.
I provide feedback in my areas of expertise: criticism, grant writing, and visual arts. This could look a three-session mentorship schedule, exchanging a fee for written feedback on your grant application, or a studio visit. Typically this is facilitated through a third party such as an artist-run centre or non-profit but feel free to reach out.
I have a lot of experience with providing feedback and one of the ways I do this is through advisory service. Typically, an organization doing research for future programming or a non-prof group preparing for a campaign is who I advise for. But anyone in need of person-led testimony to back up their initiatives is welcome to reach out. I've advised in autism, disability, and arts worker experiences. I have worked with groups such as the Centre for Sexuality and Disability Without Poverty.

Reviews / Essays
I have experience with writing exhibition essays, reviews, critical essays, and interviews
I have a love for vintage film and a knack for finding thematically-tied visuals and scenes. For commission, you tell me the theme and I'll compile clips into a projectable, visual backdrop for your dj sets, social events, and more.
I've provided videos for local, grassroots queer dance and performance events like Pansy Club, Generic Lesbian Party, Buns, HY DRA TION and more.
