STUDIO SHOW!!

Please join me in my studio (well, not exactly IN my studio, as it is too messy and I don’t have it in me to clean it) for my first art show in years!  I am calling it my NOT SO FANCY ART SHOW as it will be in my tent just outside of my studio.  If you want to come in and see my messy studio, you are more than welcome.  My art will be on display in my nice clean tent from 10 am till 4 pm on Saturday, August 18th at 801 Wharncliffe Rd. Duncan, BC.  I will have everything from originals to magnets, something for everyone.

I hope you can join me!

WHERE:  801 Wharncliffe Rd. Duncan, BC  (my studio is in my garage at the back of my house.  Look for the tent!)

WHEN:  August 18, 2018.  10 am – 4 pm.

EVERYONE IS INVITED!

My love for Watercolours

I started painting in 1992 with watercolors while travelling and working in Mexico.  A love for the medium was born and I painted with ONLY watercolours for 11 years before I took up working with acrylics.  This summer I have been working at the Duke Point Ferry Marketplace and the space is perfect to paint with watercolours in between boat crowds.  I am approaching the watercolours with 26 years of painting experience now and I am once again in love with the medium.  The dragonfly, hummingbird and raven are my 3 favorite winged creatures.  I will be making these into greeting cards that will be available for purchase through my online store.

O CANADA!

FROM SEA TO SEA TO SEA 

 

I am proud to announce that my painting FROM SEA TO SEA TO SEA placed first in the O CANADA! exhibition at the Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery in Vancouver in July 2018.

I created this painting to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.  The painting depicts 7 distinct landscapes that can be found in Canada, as well as the three oceans that border our country.  It plays tricks on your eyes, but if you look closely, you can see maple leaves with smaller paintings inside, showcasing the scenery of Canada’s Flower Pot Rocks, Peggy’s Cove, the prairies, the forests, the mountains, the west coast and our northern lights. 

As the daughter of immigrants, I have always been acutely aware of the multicultural population in Canada.      FROM SEA TO SEA TO SEA lends itself well to portraying the unique and distinct cultures that make up our country.

New Works for 2018

My first painting of the year was inspired by a friend who was in a stressful situation but found people willing to help and make things easier for her on her journey.  Inspiration comes to me in all shapes and forms!

I tried my hand at plaster relief and was able to put some fun textures into my work. 

These little originals are wired and ready to hang!  

 

Painting Buddha Sculptures

I have started to paint on cement sculptures.  I was able to acquire several Buddha sculptures from an importer who had them slightly damaged in transit.  With the help of plaster and primer, I am able to get them to become a unique canvas for my work.  The process and the results are amazing for me.  I welcome commissions in this format! If you have any ideas, I would love to hear about them.
