So excited to announce new products! You can now purchase some of my favourite designs on fabric - beautiful scarves and silk shirts by VIDA - Voices Collection. VIDA is a global partnership of creators, pairing designers from around the world with makers in Pakistan and India in accordance with high ethical standards, to create original, beautiful products. And the best part is that using part of proceeds from the sales of the products, VIDA creates literacy programs for the makers, so that they have opportunities to learn reading, writing and basic math that they would not otherwise have. Could I be any more excited????

Almost a year after discovering I have breast cancer, I am so very pleased to announce I was welcomed with open arms by what I consider to be the most dynamic gallery representing Canadian artists anywhere in the nation. Today, I joined some brilliant artists and incredible staff at Canada House Gallery.
Earlier this year, I was invited along with 36 artists in Alberta and Saskatchewan to participate in the inaugural "Cenovus Art Competition". The focus of the competition was to identify "under-recognized artists" in Alberta and Saskatchewan, in the form of a competition. Normally, I don't go in for these sort of things, but I liked what the company was proposing to do.
I'm very pleased to announce my first solo public exhibition of works at the Okotoks Art Gallery. January 11 - February 27, 2013. The exhibition will feature multimedia works, paintings and installations and also integrate my recent experience with the theme as Artist in Residence in Gwaii Haanas National Park.
Now, it's time to take some time and celebrate the success of this wonderful show. I'm usually not one to pause long enough to catch my breath....but catching my breath was exactly what I did yesterday when I saw the works all hung together. As artists, we need to take a moment and celebrate the accomplishments along the way. It is no mean feat, taking hours of manpower, years of training, eons of practice and a little magic!
I'm going to be an Artist in Residence at Gwaii Haanas! Artists in Gwaii Haanas is a collaborative effort between Gwaii Haanas National Park, the Haida Gwaii Museum, and the Haida Nation. For 10 days in June, three artists (two artist residents of Haida Gwaii and one visiting artist) will be guided by a Parks Canada staff member into remote areas of Gwaii Haanas National Park.
