Happy New Year!

I’m ringing in 2018 with a few changes!

BLOG: I am changing up the purpose of the BLOG. I started the blog a year ago, but, as it turns out, regular blogging does not suit me. However, since I am often asked about the background information on my paintings, I think the blog could be a useful tool to give viewers that insight. So going forward I intend to use it primarily for that purpose, as well as keeping up with current news from the studio.

CLASSESDiscontinued as of January 1st, 2018. Endings are sad, but they clear the way for new beginnings. To that end: art classes, art parties and Artist on a Mission programs will no longer be offered. Thank-you to all of the marvellous people I have shared my love of art with! I hope you will all stay in touch.
