Eglinton Square * Toucan Community Banner

I had the privilege of creatively collaborating with Crosslinx in leading a two part community activation in partnership with Scarborough Arts & Eglinton Square Mall. The project was to create a banner in which members of the local community could have participated in the creation process.

The Toucan Banner was the concept created and the community turnout was amazing! The Toucan of itself came out beautifully. Thanks to the over one hundred community members that showed up and were involved in the creation process!

The Toucan Banner ended up being the largest scale piece I’ve created to date: a whopping 4ft. x 8ft. using the technique of Modern Batik Art, the expressive exploration of wax, dyes & ink on fabric!
