Light My Fire
Graham remembers deciding he wanted to be anartist at the age o our or ive, when his drawingo a ire truck received a hugely avourable reac-tion rom everyone who saw it. Born in Ottawa,he studied and loved art in high school and ol-lowed up with a two-year art course at the HighSchool o Commerce, to explore whether artwas what he really wanted to do. Concerned about the ability tomake a living at it (his ather had relegated his own love o art tothe back burner to support the amily), Graham chose SheridanCollege to acquire his degree in Book Illustration. His studentplacement with McClelland and Stewart resulted in a ull-time job in oronto, where he enjoyed working two years as a graphicdesigner.
He et his wie Jenn, n erly childhood eductor, terhe oved bck to Ottw, where he sent three yers with design r creting ny governent ublictions. In2000, Jenn sotted n 1840s log hoe on  ten-cre lot be-tween Ketville nd Merrickville. As Grh succinctly uts it, “I love y neighbours but I love y sce.
