Studio Sale Party!!!

21 Jan

In just one week on January 27th, 5-9pm I am having a Studio Sale Party, kindly hosted by my friend at 80 Mill Street. Why not my actual studio? Only about 5 of you would fit with all the work going on in there, and I’m kind of in the middle of nowhere. Oops. You’ll still get to see a huge range of what I’ve been working on the last few years, with paintings, prints, and my new line of jewellery. Best of all, everything’s for sale! Just in time to buy some art for your sweetheart before Valentine’s Day. I’ll be providing snacks and wine, and plenty of lounge space to hang out with fellow art lovers. You can find the full invite here. The location is also right across the street from the Toronto Light Festival if you feel like making it a whole evening of art. See you there!

If you need more reasons to come, here’s a few examples of the bead jewellery I’ve been making. I love the small scale of adornments to play with colour and texture. I’m using a mix of vintage and new beads, and suffering from a bit of tassel mania.

Just a bit.

Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

28 Jul

visitors

It was such an honour to be selected for the 56th annual Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, held in Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto. I’ve been attending the event since high school, and had an amazing time being part of the diverse group of artists on display.

We were lucky enough to have clear skies and sun almost the entire show, and the crowds came out in huge numbers. Possibly too much sun was had. You can’t really tell but I’m heat sick as anything in this photo.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and said hi, and all the wonderful people who make the event happen. Special thanks to TOAE volunteers, sponsors, jury and staff, and the friends and family who did time helping out in my booth (like my mom, pictured above!). It was a great weekend and wouldn’t have been possible without all of you.
