-- Free visit includes reading of one of my books and a Q&A (please have a few questions prepared ahead of time). 

My regular virtual visits can include a wide variety of formats and topics (I'm flexible; just let me know your needs), hands-on workshops (can be tailored to any age level), career tips, different types of drawing demonstrations (digital as well as paper) and more. 

30 min. presentation or workshop that includes time for a Q&A.: US $125/CDN $150*

45-60 min. presentation or workshop for one audience that includes time for a Q&A.: US $208/CDN $250* 

In-Person Appearances: Toronto area

CA $300* and cab fare (from Yonge & Eglinton) for a 45-60 minute presentation

I can do up to three presentations a day. I'm fine with the presentations being in different locations during the day as long as the host provides transportation.


Photographs during the presentation are fine but no audio/video recording, please...thanks!
