I created the character of “Jeffrey” (a small stuffed toy with a tiny drum) for two paintings in my auditions 2day! series in 2010. In December 2012 I set myself the challenge of a painting a day, and sent “Jeffrey” out on a walk. I never knew from one day to the next where he might go.
“Jeffrey” found more and more friends as I posted the paintings of his walk. In 2014 I wrote the story of his journey, and Jeffrey Takes a Walk in December, my first book, was published in 2015.
The original artwork for Jeffrey Takes a Walk in December appears on solo exhibit at the Waterfront Theatre in Vancouver, B.C., November 1 2016 – January 4 2017.
The book is available through Friesen Press:
