Old Photos to New Paintings

Tonight I started cleaning my studio space, so I can paint tomorrow. In the process of looking for my Hoodoo photographs, I discovered a gold-mine of photos from my personal travels and hikes going all the way back to 2003. As a result, I pulled a few old photos out and found a wealth ofContinue reading “Old Photos to New Paintings”

Hoodoo Fun

Imagine my amazement, as a Canadian artist, when a grade three class from Alberta contacted me about my Hoodoo paintings. They were studying Canadian Art as part of Canada’s 150th, along with studying the Hoodoo rock formations- so naturally my work spoke to them. Since they contacted me on April 11th, we have exchanged aboutContinue reading “Hoodoo Fun”

Mystical Landscapes

Mystical Landscapes is totally my thing- when I paint I’m bringing forth an essence of what I feel from the earth. Usually it’s an energy or emotion, which I try to convey through colour and brush strokes to offer a sense of movement, like the earth is breathing. So naturally, I had to go seeContinue reading “Mystical Landscapes”

A Year In Review

One year ago, I held my first private art show “Two Days In Jasper.” It was a very small show, only 7 canvases (only 5 completed), quite experimental in my new style. The show gave me a positive push into 2016 ¬†when I received my first commissioned piece (along with 3 others this year). ItContinue reading “A Year In Review”

Canadian Landscapes

WELL. I’m struggling to start this blog entry. A week ago today, I returned from a 9 day trip across Canada. I have a friend who moved to Vancouver, so we drove her car out west and then I flew home. Holy memories! We have been friends for 27 years (we met when were 10Continue reading “Canadian Landscapes”

2016 Art Exposure

Since hosting my private art show “Two Days In Jasper” in December 2015, my passion for painting has exploded. I started this website, became a member of “Spirit of the Hills” and 2016 has been an incredible year (and it isn’t even over yet); I completed four large custom paintings, I co-hosted a successful artContinue reading “2016 Art Exposure”

Cobourg Waterfront Festival | ART

Every Canada Day weekend in Cobourg, Ontario brings us the Waterfront Festival. This year they had three tents full of art and craft vendors. I made the mistake of going in at 5pm, thinking there was only one tent, with it ending at 6pm. I left feeling inspired, not only to paint, but to shareContinue reading “Cobourg Waterfront Festival | ART”

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”

The Jasper Journey

The Jasper (art) Journey continues… After meeting with my art-bestie Jennifer Trefiak¬†this week, it became clear to me that despite already hosting “Two Days In Jasper” this journey is far from over. 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”

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”
