Sunshine Coast Art | Summer 2018

Dear friends and art lovers,

It's been some time since I posted an update about my artistic meanderings and doings, somehow managing to let my winter art retreat and social media sabbatical slide into the hot waning months of summer. Originally it was my intention to bring everyone up to date as spring sprung but things do not always go as planned. The radio silence, however has not been without good reason and I am happy to fill you in.


As it turns out taking a break from the demands of the electronic world has been a most refreshing and productive time for me, the result of which has been a new series of work that I'm very excited about debuting at the 7th annual Power of Paint show this August 17, 18 and 19 at the Seaside Centre in Sechelt, B.C. ( So, no, I have not been drinking martinis, watching Netflix from the couch, dancing the night away nor sleeping til noon, despite rumours to the contrary...). I am very pleased with this new work but the most exciting thing for me is that I feel there is still plenty to explore and create within this new series. I'm looking forward to it.


In January of 2018, a call for donations for the establishment of a permanent art collection was put forth by the Sechelt Hospital Foundation with the goal of providing a visually inspiring and supportive environment for those giving or receiving care. I am thrilled and honoured to be one of the inaugural contributing artists to this worthwhile program with the donation of two of my pieces, 'Waterborne' and 'All of Me'. I am excited to watch as this wonderful 'Art of Healing' collection grows.


So here I am back to the interweb and back in your mailbox. Come say hello to me at Power of Paint,  August 17, 18 & 19 at the Seaside Centre, Sechelt, B.C.

Warm regards,
