Todd’s screenprints have been exhibited in public and private exhibition spaces across Canada and express his fascination with architecture and landscape. His latest children’s book Quand le vent souffle, published in September 2019, imagines a 90-year-long conversation between two pine trees in the boreal forest.

“I create pieces that consciously allow for open interpretation and multiple perspectives. They reflect a search for meaning in unfamiliar places.”
