Had a great Art show at the 2015 Fairy Lake Artisan’s Festival

The Fairy Lake Artisan’s Festival was relaxing, fun and energizing. It was my fourth year doing this Festival and realize that every time the experience is unique and special.  The weather was sunny and warm and there were a lot of people walking through looking at my art. Many people were interested in purchasing my artwork and took my business card.

This Festival was a great way for me to showcase my new paintings and get feedback from the public; as well as tell people about my art practice, process of making my work, or the art education/instruction work that I do.

Artist Educator Foundations Course!

As a visual artist I am constantly learning and evolving. As part of my ongoing training, I have enrolled in the Artist Educator Foundations course with the Royal Conservatory. The course, which starts in March, teaches me the ins and outs of different art education practices, lesson plans, theories and strategies, and is practical and hands-on with group work, discussions and application.
