Earthly Delights: Lost in The Garden
With support from the Canada Council for the Arts, I will be working on Earthly Delights – Lost In the Garden through the rest of 2023. This project will explore themes from health and diet culture in a contemporary reinterpretation of Hieronymous Bosch’s 16th century epic masterpiece, The Garden of Earthly Delights. Have an opinion you want to share on health and diet culture today? Get in touch with me!
Earthly Delights: 10 Still Life Paintings in Places
With support from Calgary Arts Development Association and The City of Calgary, I completed a series of paintings exploring health and diet culture through contemporary still life painting in the larger environment. What does that mean exactly? I’ve set up an Earthly Delights Gallery page for the project: In addition I will be releasing a series of in depth blog posts about the process and ideas behind each of the paintings. I’ll share compilations of those blog posts in my quarterly newsletter so signing up for that will help you catch them all . Want to see the finished work exhibited in your venue or community? Get in touch with me!

I invite you to learn more about this project documenting the experiences of individual women (including yours truly) living through the Covid-19 pandemic.

A Painted Garage Door Mural for Your Home?
Last summer I completed this mural on my garage door. There was such a great response to the project that I may open up bookings for garage door murals for summer of 2024. I would only have a few slots available between late spring and early fall, weather dependant. If you are interested in something like this let me know.
