Due to Covid 19, my upcoming solo show in the Armstrong and Spallumcheen Gallery has been postponed until October 2021.

Instead, I have decided to present the show at Picture This Gallery!

The paintings are now ready to be viewed! I hope you are able to come by and check out the body of work I put together over the past year! Everything is also available to view online; just click on the link on the homepage!

An interesting opportunity arose to participate in a writer's and artist's event called "Inspired By".

First, I provide an original image to a writer, who then writes a piece inspired by the painting.  I, in turn, receive a piece of writing, and paint an image inspired by the story or poem.  I am excited to see the results!  

Two of my paintings were chosen to be forwarded to writers.
