Artist Tori Maas

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

I am an avid coffee drinker. I get my latte from The White Squirrel, I love Starbucks breakfast sandwiches and I am partial to Second Cup’s morning glory muffins. An added bonus to my morning routine is finding great art hanging on the walls. Right now the Second Cup near the store is showcasing work by artist Tori Maas. Her work is totally engaging and worth the trip to take a look at. Tori mainly works with pen and ink, water colour and gouache and what caught my eye was her sense of humour and the fact that she incorporates Chiyogami and Katazome papers into some of her collage pieces. You can find her work at the Second Cup at Queen and Palmerston or check out her web site.
