Sacred Sundays

Lately my weekends have been consumed by art. No complaints here! Between custom pieces and preparing for the upcoming art show (July 30th), I have my hands full. I consider my weekends sacred, and use my time quite deliberately. However, last night I found myself alone on a Saturday night, not quite ready to paintContinue reading “Sacred Sundays”

Earth & Sky

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 30th! Jennifer Trefiak and I will be hosting our art show “Earth & Sky” 12:30 – 4:30pm in Port Hope (St.Mark’s Church).

When I hosted the original show, I chose only 7 images to paint, out of hundreds of photos. Out of the 7 paintings,Continue reading “The Jasper Journey”

It started with some rough sketches and matching brain waves… This was before we met. ThisContinue reading “Sweet Soul Projects”

Art and Motherhood

“Mommy, I want to help!” In the end I finished it at home two weeks later… As my artistic journey deepens, I continue to stumble across blogs and articles about women, careers and motherhood. I should be clear: art is not my lively-hood, it is a passion and hobby I’ve returned to again and againContinue reading “Art and Motherhood”

Greeted | Entering Jasper National Park

In August 2015, I took a trip to Jasper, Alberta, Canada. This trip changed my life dramatically, but more then anything else it changed the direction of my art. The photo above is one of the mountains on the left side of the highway, that gradually grew more majestic as we drove west. My sweetContinue reading “Greeted | Entering Jasper National Park”
