A Modern Home for The Road

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

This summer I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting the owners of my painting, The Road. Their gorgeous new home is featured in Modern Home, here. I like how well she looks with the slick furniture and those delicious textures. I’m swooning over that weaving studio and all that stunning natural light. My lucky girl has a lovely new home.

April Show at The Gallery at Mattick’s Farm

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Candy, Oil on Canvas, 2015 (SOLD)

Howdy, folks, it’s been a while since I was on here. I’m squirrelling away in my studio producing new and re-painting old paintings for a show at The Gallery at Mattick’s Farm. The paintings go up April 4, and the official fancy-pants opening reception is April 10, 1pm-4pm. Please come see what I’ve been working on. It’s a mix of mainly the ongoing Girls series, with some others peppered in to add to the narrative. I like seeing the way different bodies of work play together to form a whole new story. In true ‘vernissage’ fashion, I’m certain some paint will still be wet!

People’s Choice Award!

Friday, October 11th, 2013

I’m happy to say I won the People’s Choice Award at the Sooke Fine Arts Show this year, for my painting A Warm Spring. I’m really honoured and happy to win this, thanks to all who voted for my painting!

A Warm Spring

Lots of Fun News!

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Loyal cats and kittens, I have returned here to let you know what I’m up to. I’ve spent a grand winter and spring squirreled away in my studio, and now I shall come outside and show you what I’ve made. I’ve been working on a whole new series, called Swimmers. To see the most finished ones, please visit my website. First up is the first ever Paint In the Square, a prelude to the Gallery Paint In on Moss Street. Then there’s the Sooke Fine Arts Show, in which I’m excited to be showing two big new pieces.

A Big One

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Last spring I finished the largest painting I’ve ever done on canvas: 8.5 x 10 feet. The paintings were a commission for a lovely couple who have recently moved to a West Coast style home with a large, blank wall that needed some added “wow factor”. The field in the paintings almost looks as though you could walk right into it, the scale is so great. I hope they love living with it as much as I loved the challenge of painting it.

They were so tall, the only way to see them side-by-side was to prop them up outside!

In progress. They were so tall, the only way to see them side-by-side was to prop them up outside!

If you’re interested in commissioning a painting from me, (it doesn’t have to be huuuge), please feel free to email me for pricing and other information. Big thanks to Tara at Livtona Interior Design for the collaboration on this project!

Sooke Fine Arts Show 2011

Friday, July 22nd, 2011


This year I have two pieces in the Sooke Fine Arts Show, which opens this Saturday, July 23 at 10 am, and runs until August 1st.

Sketchbooks ~ Mexico

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Yay, more travelly sketchbooks!

This one is Mexico, January 2011. There is such pleasure in doing a silly little sketch with my wee set of watercolours. It’s pressure free, as I don’t have to show it to anyone if I don’t want to (but I’ll show them to you!). It’s the act of sitting with my notebook and my Pina Colada and fiddling with paints. Sigh. It helps when the sun is warm and the palms are swaying. Happiness.




~ OPEN ~ A New Show

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

I am mounting a show at Xchanges Gallery in Victoria, which opens this Friday at 7pm. I seem to have painted myself into a corner, so we’ll have ourselves another vernissage, with the smell of wet varnish mixing with wine and perfume for the opening. I’ve decided it’s romantic…



Monday, July 19th, 2010

Well, thanks to the fabulous folks who stopped by my patch of grass, the Paint-In was a lot of fun. About 6 hours of talking about myself to 30,000 peeps. By 8:30 pm, after a lovely Sea Cider (I recommend the Kings & Spies) and a brief but enjoyable listen to Kumbia, I was done-for. It’s a pretty uplifting thought that 150 visual artists along a street can bring 10% of the city’s population to see them. My friend says it’s the best thing Victoria has going for it, and I have to proudly agree.

I showed some new works at the Paint In, all of which have yet to make it to my actual website. I’ll post these on here soon.
