We Shall Live Here #10

Since time has been a major factor for all things in life, particularly since a certain little babe was born, I’ve decided to open a shop site on Society6  for the time being.

This way I can offer to you a quick, professional service for prints (framed or not) and in some cases printed canvas also! Society6 provides a great place for artists to offer their work to the masses without the hassle of doing the printing, packaging, shipping and worrying that other avenues entail. My time is precious and I know yours is too. Keep checking back RIGHT OVER HERE SWEETNESS as I slowly add various images over the next weeks. great idea for gifts. and if you’re so inclined in participating, there’s free worldwide shipping on now and throughout the weekend.

The Wickaninnish Inn

Tofino, Vancouver Island, Canada. Home of the wild, wind whipped coast, sand and surf.

I was contacted by the prestigious Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino to see if I was interested in hanging some of my work in their new space (as of January 2013) the Henry Nolla Gallery.

Would I?! I was thrilled. This was back in June.  I dove head first into the new series I was letting marinate. a short summer visit and I was hooked on the visuals, the sounds, the tiny and the gargantuan.

Everything is ancient. it creaks, it whispers, always moving. everything is living, breathing, stretching, growing. The area is filled with wild magic. The spirits dance there.

I produced about 15 new pieces over the course of the Summer. 11 of which were delivered to Erika at the Wickaninnish Inn. They should all be hanging now, so if you are in the area, please be sure to give them a peek.

I have the honour and pleasure of exhibiting my mixed media works from my ‘we shall live here’ series on the walls of the Plum Gallery in the Port Moody Arts Centre!

They’re hanging out there right now! I haven’t seen them yet, but I will be at the gallery this Saturday as part of the annual Artswalk. Come by and say hello! And if you can’t make it, the Opening Reception for the show is Thurs, April 21st from 6-8 pm.

My work will be alongside a good friend & colleague of mine, Amanda Maxwell, she makes really beautiful jewelry with surprising results. Our work is both based on the concept of home, and it should prove to be quite interesting to see our work come together .

Hope to see you there! xo
