Visitor ready, Gallery 8 features several of my pieces. A wall of bears!
Putting art into different environments and spaces helps visualize their placement.
Some good design ideas!
I love experimenting with new material and mediums.
Cold wax is a beeswax, gamsol, and resin medium that can be added to oil paints to create texture. For me, it's a good medium to use for abstract painting.
Sleuth, the bear hangs along with the other AFCA awards winners until Dec. 22, 2018.
Humbled to be awarded Honorable Mention at this year's AFCA show.
The signature members are a talented bunch of artists.
A lovely group of philanthropic women, the Vancouver Art Gallery Associates visit my studio.
They heard first hand my story as a working artist.
On any domestic flight at YVR ( Vancouver's airport), one display case is home to two of my paintings, presently located near Gate C40. Enjoy some art before departure!
They're small and mighty. I created a series of smaller pieces on wood panels with bears as my muse. It allows me to quickly study my subject, and inject new ideas. Next up, bigger paintings that will challenge me in another way. Enjoy!
Abstract vs Realism
"Abstract/Realism" explores the right-handed/left-side debate by having 13 artists compose two pieces of work - one realism, the other on abstraction. Will artists who typically work in realism have trouble creating an abstract piece and vice-versa?

Happy Canada Day!
Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island hosts my flag paintings.
