Fear is a 4 letter word not to be feared!

Fear really is a four letter word not be be feared, and failure is really a success in itself.

I have always been a person to jump in first then ask questions later! Not recommended for some things but definitely for living life.

I am excited to say that I have submitted three painting for the 34th Chelsea International Fine Art Completion, as well as submitting one painting to the 2019 Luxembourg Art Prize.  I am in the process of submitting work to Artbox Gallery in Zürich for the Swiss Art Expo. In Ottawa my work is at the Carleton Place Library until March 28th, and at the Civic Hospital Art Gallery for the month of April. Then in May I will be at the Art House Cafe, Ottawa.

Go ahead and do something that makes you happy!

Art & clothing collide environmentally of course!

It is up and running! My clothing line that is. Wear without guilt & bath in colour. Blue Universe is first on tap.

Le Galeriste’s states on their website:


An artist somewhere is compensated for every product that leaves our factory. We’ve never hired a single undeclared employee (if you only knew how big of a problem that is – even locally – you wouldn’t be so surprised that we actually wrote this down in here!). Vegan fabrics are dyed in-house with environment-friendly water-based inks. Focused on sustainability, Le Galeriste limits fabric waste to a bare minimum. We are basically perfect. NOT! But we do try to be the best corporate citizen we possibly can.

Artists Nurturing Artists

I often get asked by other artist where I exhibit/submit my work or am interested in doing so, and I excitingly give them all the information I possess. Last year I attended an artists information session where one of the speakers informed us we were all in competition with each other. Well you can only imagine my reaction! No we are not! I live my life by Karma and I believe that if someone is meant to have my art they will make the purchase. I am truly happy when my fellow artists are successful since I believe art is essential to the well being of people and therefore the world. So here is my personal list  so far, in no particular order. Since I strive to learn everyday I will continue to update the list. I hope it is helpful.
