I’m back home and back to the day-to-day grind. It is so easy to get swept away in all the busy daily chores of life and it seems now that this post is long overdue.
During my two weeks (and a few days) at the Haven, I managed to paint more than 30 new pieces and begin a slightly different focus for my current Free Fall series. I had a great opportunity to share my new work with the community through an open studio afternoon followed by an artist talk on the last weekend of my stay. I sincerely appreciated the feedback I received and was touched by the genuine interest people had in my work.
My new paintings will be displayed as part of a group show this November, which concludes my contract as Artist in Residence with Youth Empowerment & Support Services (Y.E.S.S) in Edmonton. Stay tuned for images of this show!
I cannot thank The Haven and the Gabriola Arts Council enough for this wonderful experience. It was a truly productive and inspiring journey!
