Collaged Backdrop for Peter and the Starcatcher by LocationCreator
Collaged Backdrop for Peter and the Starcatcher
The backdrop image is all Photoshop generated after making two watercolor versions, and tweaking them in Photoshop. The net, green plastic swags, blue plastic pendants, are all to be collaged onto a used, scumble-painted and sprayed scrim. The musicians in the show sit upstage of this, able to see through it downstage to the actors so they can match the timing of certain sound effects.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile by LocationCreator
Picasso at the Lapin Agile
A.  What is the title of the play? Picasso at the Lapin Agile
B.  What was your role in the production? Set Designer
C.  How long did you have to design, plan and do drawings of it before fabrication of the work commenced? 10 Weeks
D.  How long did you have to build it before opening night? 6 Weeks
E.  What was special about this production for you as a creative artist? The great creative team, the universe surrounding the audience via lights, and the magic of the show. the props team was fabu'ous in finding just the right decor. Loved it.
F.  What odd, terrible, awful, or nasty challenges did you have to overcome to make this production as good as it was?  The bar was too tall for the actors, and this was addressed in tech rehearsals. 
Getting a guest artist job is kinda like taking a vacation, but you are going to someone else's theatre to do a job. So, it is work. It is fun because you are in a new space with new, creative minds. It is difficult because you might not know where the location of the hardware store. For sure, sooner or later you find out where the best ice cream is, and where the local watering hole is. It is all part of getting into the rhythm of a new place.

Heidi! What's new in your art?

Hey, Michèle! How are you? How is your art? I'm gearing up for the start of a new school term and designing two professional theatre productions as well as the academic productions. Lot of new students to meet. Thank you for asking!

You are a true business woman! How do you find any time to have an artistic activity?

Oh, my Dear Michèle, I struggle with my time so that I can create stage designs for professional theatre companies. I love working with different creative teams. I love preparing my students for the entertainment industry, showing them the ropes. I regret the fact that I do not have the time (yet) to draw and paint illustrations of my favourite stories, or even yesterday's sunset which was so inspirational.  Well, Nothing is perfect! I am pleased that I had the time to SEE the sunset!
