A quick note - I am up to my elbows in paint - going through all my paintings and doing some final touches - I am so excited to be sharing them with you at the show next Sunday (May 24).
I had thought I might post photos of some pieces before the show - but will now be posting the entire show all together, during the week following the 24th... So I hope that even if you aren't able to be there in person, that you will stop by for a visit then, and have a browse.
Happy May Long Weekend! A quick dog walk, and back to the studio for me!
I'm not sure if posting only a couple of times a year really qualifies as a blog... but it's a start!
This update is to let you know that I have been working away like crazy in my studio getting ready for my upcoming show (second annual!) in West Vancouver on Sunday, May 24, 2015. I am so looking forward to sharing my work with old and new friends alike, and hope you will be able to join us - once again, for wine, conversation and an art wander. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you might be able to come.
Also - I have not posted any new images for several months as I have been putting together this body of work. However, early in May I will post some of the paintings to be included in the show in a separate Gallery linked from the Home Page - just a wee preview prior to the 24th, in case you are interested.
Here is one of the new paintings... "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden".
See you soon!
Thank-you so much to everyone who came to my show, "Transitions", in Vancouver on Sunday July 20, 2014. Planning is already underway for the "second annual" show, on Sunday, May 24, 2015. Look forward to seeing you there!
Have a good year :)
In the immortal words of Alice Cooper.... School's Out!! (forever?!)!!!! Woooooo!
It has been amazing, this past three years at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. A time of new growth and learning - and I am very grateful for the experience, and for the friends I have made.
But the truth is, I am almost as glad to be leaving as I was at being accepted... and by that I mean that I welcome the next phase of this art journey- the impending day to day life of being faced with a blank page or canvas.. and somehow wending my way through that as an artist. Yes, it's terrifying, but man, what an adventure!
So - what next???
I am now settled in my new home & studio in Calgary. Still with profound connections to the West Coast, but loving the endless sunshine and the big prairie sky with all that light!
I'm looking forward to establishing an art practice routine, spending some time working with SEVA (see links in the "Links" section of this website) in Tanzania, and generally developing my own sustainable practice as an artist.
In addition, I am having my first solo show, called "Transitions", on July 20 from 2-5 in West Vancouver, (as detailed on the Events page), and would love to see you there - for a visit and an art wander. Please email me at email@example.com for details.
Thanks again for visiting - and 'nite...from the Big Prairie Sky,
I am sitting here in the kitchen, drinking tea while a warm, Calgary, end-of-summer breeze blows gently through the house. The dogs, Lex (my flat-coated retriever) and Lola (my son & his fiancee's springer spaniel), are snoozing. It is a quiet and contented moment. A perfect time to launch this web-site. Much still to do and improve on, but it's a start, and that is so often the hardest part.
I think perhaps it's time for another cup of tea!
