Exciting news!!!

I'm so grateful and honoured to receive a grant from The Fund for the Arts on the North Shore (FANS). It's towards 'Artistic Production' – creating a body of large-scale figurative work for a solo show. It's an exciting next step in my artistic career, and to receive their support and encouragement is incredible!

Their Fundraiser's this Friday, November 4, 2016!

100 Days of Ocean!!!!

My ‘100 Days of Ocean’ Creative Challenge is complete! 100 Days is a long time to stick to something... but the length of time instills habit and pushes creativity and experimentation.

And sharing the process makes it all the more real... Thank you for following along and for all your support, inspiration and encouragement!!

After one big hiccup pretty late in the game, I got back to it, saw through the goal and the creative process. I expanded my range, learned new techniques and created pieces I didn’t think possible in a short time frame on a mostly daily basis.

A project like this is visual proof you can achieve something big by doing something small everyday.
