Expanding On The Arts

There is something about the crisp air of September that always helps clear my head, and get me motivated again. Since August I have been working on a few custom oil paintings, and playing around with some merchandise from previous works. Tote bags, mugs, and the 2021 calendar are a few on my list ofContinue reading “Expanding On The Arts”

Port Hope Christmas Market

Holy Moly, St.Mark’s Annual Christmas Market is less than a month away. What the heck?! I still have paintings to complete, prints to matte, blogs to write and events to promote… You can find me at the market again this year, located at 51 King Street in Port Hope. November 22nd and 23rd, this yearContinue reading “Port Hope Christmas Market”

Hello 40!

40. You are finally here! I have been excited for this landmark birthday since I was 25… It seemed to hold so much promise, excitement, and wise-woman-wisdom. It has seemed mysterious and so far away. But before August 25th arrived, I was struck with a few trials and tribulations that made me reconsider my excitement.Continue reading “Hello 40!”

Adventures in Art | Summer 2019

Summer has just begun but holy moly with a bang! At the end of June I wrapped up a huge custom painting, which was fun but also very challenging (it was a surprise gift, so very little communication was made during the process). I was  happy  to  hear  it  was  a hit! Then at theContinue reading “Adventures in Art | Summer 2019”

New Canadian Landscape Series (in oils)

It feels so good to be out of my creative-rut. Although now I am being challenged in new ways. You may have read my last blog “Revival of the Arts” where I share my first (real) attempt with oil painting. Since then, I have started a new collection of 5 Canadian Landscapes (or 8 ifContinue reading “New Canadian Landscape Series (in oils)”

Revival of the Arts

I finally broke through my art-funk last week, when I had a night alone and decided to work in the oil paints I’ve avoided forever. I used some of my most simple beach photographs and applied that simplicity to the paintings:   I finished two acrylics from my Ontario collection, and continue to work onContinue reading “Revival of the Arts”

Sunday Moods

I am always an early riser. This morning I got out for groceries at 8am, and tossed Neil Young’s “Prairie Wind” in the CD player… Did it ever set my mood for the day. “The painter stood, before her work, she looked around everywhere… she saw the pictures and she painted them, picking colours fromContinue reading “Sunday Moods”

Winter Brilliance

  After a grey and moody September, October, November, and December; it seems the new year has lightened up and brought us a bit of sun and snow. I always find this time of year to be so magical – winter light just has the best glow. Sunrises and sunsets, crisp starlit nights; and wowContinue reading “Winter Brilliance”
