CLIMBING FENCES NEW EXHIBIT
I am having a new exhibit this May at Colborne Street Gallery in Fennelon Falls, Ontario. The exhibit, Climbing Fences encourages the viewer to explore how we view nature. Where some answers are obscured or dreams discovered. Where what we see has deeper meaning then what we see, and perhaps it is at these edges we can meet and see things in a new way.
Working on a New Exhibit
THE STONE WITNESS
A show I am working on exploring the history held within the land. It's beauty and it's darker corners. Involving painting and printmaking, written observations or poems.
Recent Solo Exhibit
THE LOST AND FOUND PROJECT
This exhibition’s idea came from actually getting lost and found by Search and Rescue in a forest area in Ontario. It is a perspective changing experience a guest of wolves an owl, snow and a full moon to guide you in your solitude.
Printmaking it's a thing!
I have always been interested in printmaking and it just seemed to be a natural to expand my work. I so enjoy creating these new images with Linoleum block and Etchings on acetate.

When you're Lost and Found
This exhibition’s idea came from the end results of actually getting lost and found by Search and Rescue in a forest area in Ontario. The guest of wolves an owl, snow and a full moon to guide you in your solitude. Resulting in the loss of how I viewed myself and the environment and finding new perspectives for both. The paintings are accompanied with writings that I have written providing the viewer with the possibility of seeing unknown observations for themselves.►
