Abu Dhabi Art Hub was the first artist community to be established in the United Arab Emirates, by Ahmed Al Yafei. In addition to operating artist in residency programs for foreign artists, through Friends of Art Hub and Adopt-an-Artist sponsorships, emerging Emerati artists are eligible to participate in residency programs overseas. It’s a global win-win exchange opportunity for artists.Pin ItContinue Reading →
2014, I hope will be my “Year of Gentle Making”. I have a few things planned, but not set in stone to reflect artfully upon my experience. With a few more prayers, rest and recovery I hope soon to be back in the studio in a meaningful way. My wish is for everyone to take some time for themselves, to be in good health and have as much time with your family and friends as you possibly can.Pin ItContinue Reading →

Here are a few suggestions to the province and Alberta Health Services to avoid this in the future:
Put adequate back-up plans in place to ensure no cancer patient’s treatment is delayed. Zero tolerance.
Empower hospital administration to adequately address emergency circumstances with patients in a timely and organized manner. “I can’t tell you the secret that I know.” does not help or instill confidence in the system.
Deliver leadership and crisis training to address these concerns.
Improve communications regarding health care in emergency situations.
If chemical transport isn’t possible due to hazardous material restrictions, a plan for how patients can get added to treatment rosters in Calgary or the nearest delivery site to their location.

One year ago today, I left Canmore for Haida Gwaii and a life-changing artist’s residency at Gwaii Haanas National Park. In a month’s time, I learned more than I could absorb, met new family and friends, saw, touched, smelled and heard things that were literally Super-Natural and was inspired and welcomed with open arms by the Haida Nation and the islanders.Pin ItContinue Reading →
