Hello world!

I have been trying unsuccessfully to get into my site and blog but this time it worked. I have no idea why!

Having a very busy summer. I taught a workshop on floor cloths, attended the Artists in Residency Program and have been chosen to attend (CPAWS) Canadian Parks and Wilderness’s Art Camp on the Dumoine River. I am  really looking forward to it. I have been drawing and painting so I will be loosened up for it. I am actually keeping an art journal again.

Work that was produced from the Residency program is showing at “Art Brulant and Impressions” gallery in Shawville.

Muriel Davies and I have a second children’s book at the publisher and the proof is in the mail as I type this. Exciting!

Peter carved this beauty with a chainsaw….very fine work and makes it look so easy….


Summer of 2017

Well here we are again and I have finished illustrating the second children’s book. “Fang’s kittens at the fair” is the title that Muriel and I  are going with at the moment. This may change though….We are checking out different publishing companies and will decide who to go with  but nothing is set as yet.

I have moved into the studio / gallery in Swisha and the rain just will not let up…..?? climate change??

I am practicing watercolor more and trying to keep up a journal of it all.

I’ll post more later and hopefully photos of the season’s involvements from my ipad.

Great to be back!Summer art_2015 085


The Dumoine River

Book Dumoine

Wally’s book on the Dumoine River is a great read telling of its history . I have one on display in the gallery.

April 1st….got stung once!!

I’ts a few days later ….April 3rd as I was unable to do anything with photos….I believe I have figured it out though. I have been working in the studio and decided to approach my art daily again….finally….It’s working out well for a week now. Lots getting done.

Working on the “Beyond the Bag” or” Au dela du Sac”  exhibition which is held each May at Art Brulant & Impressions. It’s fun! I have discovered this show called “from the basement” on CRACkLE. Listening to this great music which gives me the energy to create in ways I had not dreamed of. It’s all good!! Look for this same card ….only change will be the year! (Haven’t got the photo thing figured out yet! lolBey Bag_ FC 017
