Vincent Valentino's Book

MORTIMER PICKENS is a series that encourages conversation between child and parent. Still trying to make sense of the world around them, many children have questions during these formative years, but don't quite know how to ask them yet.

These books are written from the perspective of 10-year-old Mortimer, who at times, has some witty and profound insight to share.

Excerpts from Mortimer Pickens

Vincent Valentino

Leading communities in Ottawa through film, photography and writing, Vincent is an advocate for creative expression. Through his art, he examines and confronts these of loss and grief. Although the world can seem like a lonely place, he would say, there is comfort in others. “Don’t be afraid to be dark; don’t be afraid to be weird; don’t be afraid to be you.” He recently took up birding and enjoys the challenge. It teaches us to abandon all control and become an observer to the fleeting beauty nature provides.                                           

Vincent joined Art in the Neighbourhood in 2022.
