Production Worker – Wescan Embroidery and Printing

Dear Wescan Hiring Decision Maker(s):

Please consider me in your search for a Production Worker.

Making art has been a part of my entire adult life. After studying Commercial Art in high school, I enrolled in a BFA program at the U of A, later opting to complete an Art Education degree. A gallery of some of my early work highlights the fact it often uses simple graphic shapes.

I continued to explore my interest in making art while teaching the subject internationally. Returning to Canada in 2012, I worked with a web designer to launch my WordPress website highlighting my creative abilities in writing, photography, art, music and video production. One of my major works is a quilt, Death from A to Z by Adam Lanza, Dec. 14, 2012 (2013), which raises the issue of gun control. I’m not exactly sure when I started using Illustrator and Photoshop, but it has been many years, and I used Illustrator to create the background graphic on which the NRA bibs were placed.

As a designer, I’ve loved the wonderful vibrant colors that embroidery offers, and have used the media extensively in my overall, clothing, shirt, jacket and cap designs. For my most recent pieces, overalls, I experimented briefly with the SewArt64 program to create my own embroidery files but soon learned there is more to this than just a couple of clicks of the mouse. I also love to design t-shirts that highlight my undeniably positive outlook on life. Here’s a gallery of some of my designs in a variety of media.

Another work involving the use of typography and my design skills was the creation of a sign for North Side Automotive in Prince George. Photographs and a video of the sign appear below.

Further examples of my graphic design and illustration work can be found in my Happy Face Series.

I’ve also used a laser engraver at the Maker’s Lab in the Two Rivers gallery in Prince George.

I believe I am an excellent candidate for this position and would like to suggest we meet to discuss the contribution I could make to Wescan in filling this role.
