I will be having my first ever solo art show and since I’ll be just back from Mexico, I’m thinking of making that the theme! Sun and surf, fauna and flora! While in a small coastal town on the Pacific coast for 6 weeks I will allow myself to be inspired by all it’s beauty. I will then present my interpretation of this beautiful place I keep going back to every year! I’m excited! Fiesta! At my reception on March 30 from 1 - 3pm come and feel Mexicana!

26 May 2013 Kaleidoscope of Colour Annual Student Art Show & Sale Category: Show/Exhibit Venue: Dogwood Room, Saanich Fairgrounds
I took my first stab at watercolour painting in the winter of 2012 when I went to an art class with instructor Greg Swainson. I loved how he “made magic” with his paint brush and was inspired to continue taking several more of his classes. When I completed one of my first paintings done in a class with Greg, called Asian Reflections (see in Gallery), he inquired if I’d ever thought about selling it, and that I did, along with 10 other paintings!
