I’m a graphic designer, writer and visual artist, living on the north shore of Nova Scotia, Canada.
I spent the winter of 1979 with two friends in a small, log cabin in the backwoods of Northern Alberta. We had no electricity or water and the temperatures sometimes reached -40 celsius. In the morning we started the trucks by shoving a length of stovepipe under them, blasting and thawing the oil pans with a propane tiger torch. Often at night I would wander the chain of frozen beaver ponds behind the cabin, landscape lit by a full moon or the astral flow of Aurora Borealis.
