Spring has sprung and my studio seems to be buzzing with activity. I am currently working on new floral paintings in oils as well as some textured landscapes for some up and coming exhibitions. I am currently showing “The Sturcture of Sky” at the Paint Spot in Edmonton, Alberta as well as ongoing exhibitions at The Daffodil Gallery and Gibson Fine Art in Calgary. I am continuing to develop these new series of works. Stay Tuned!
I am so excited and happy to announce my exhibition in Port Moody, British Columbia. This exhibition was a culmination of months of work and planning. I was wowed by the presentation of the works in the gallery space, and really humbled by the sheer volume of silk flowing through the art centre space. I am very proud of this body of work and could not be happier with the overall look of the exhibition!
Pieces flowed in the breeze and everything seemed bright with color. This whole series was painted on habotai silk with a water based wax resist and beautiful jacquard dyes.

It is a busy month in my studio with workshop preparations, exhibit works in various stages, and oh so many supplies… My most recent works are highlighting the landscape of the south- specifically that of Arizona. I fell in love with this rugged red landscape, and am drawn to the mountains, peaks and valleys of this area. I am hoping to complete a small series of works from this recent adventure, as well as continue on my “Juicy” painting quest.
After a lovely week away from the cold, I have returned from sunny Arizona and was certainly taken aback by the beautiful and wondrous landscape. I am looking forward to creating some new works based on the desert and the surrounding red rock.
This month marks the start of my exhibition year with “Not your parents Watercolour” at the Daffodil Gallery. This exhibit will feature 8 of my handpainted silk scarves and tapestries.
The opening reception is on Thursday January 22 from 5 – 8 pm

What a wonderful and busy year! I have held multiple solo exhibitions this year, as well as been a part of some amazing groups of artists. I have to say, nothing inspires an artist more than a fresh new year in the making!
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement! Share and pass along my website, and stay tuned for some amazing new projects in the works for 2015!
After an amazing trip to the west coast, I am inspired by the Rocky Mountains that border Alberta and British Columbia.
This painting was completed in acrylic paint, and had a neutral grey base- a color I do not normally use, but I love how the mountain lights sparkle with the grey in behind.
NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH
Welcome to my new website. This site will document my adventures in acrylic paint, new techniques, trials, and experimentation! I am excited to launch this site as a sort of blog/workshop/source of inspiration for artists everywhere!
As an acrylic artist for the past 10 years, I have experimented on unique supports, on various substrates, incorporated various materials into my work, and have tried multiple brands and types of acrylic paint. As a medium, I believe acrylic can do amazing things!
This site will publish how-to techniques that I have developed, and some that I have learned working with GOLDEN artist colors as the working artist for Alberta.
Fall classes for 2014 are now posted!
