This weekend marks the 2015 Atlin Arts and Music Festival which I’m so excited to be part of as one of the visual artists. I’ll be teaching workshops on art journalling throughout the weekend. I was running all over town today making sure I had all my supplies ready for my students. If you’re going to be at the festival and would like to participate I teach two workshops: Saturday, July 11 from 10 am – 12:30 pm in the […]
It’s been a busy week for art teaching. I spent Saturday at the Fireweed Market teaching a workshop on mixed media art cards and tomorrow afternoon I’ll be at Yukon Artists at Work teaching mixed media canvases as part of their Art Tasters Series. I’ve included the poster here in case you want to see the full suite of awesome workshops taking pace over the summer.
I have spent the last four days in the sun, wind, and rain with a group of fellow artists for Whitehorse’s second annual Plein Air Festival. Each day we were assigned a location to paint in – the SS Klondike, the Whitehorse Wharf, the grounds of the Whitehorse Visitor Reception Centre, and the front yard of Yukon Artists at Work – and between 11 am and 4 pm would set up outside and create a piece. With ten artists hard […]
Recently I was asked to create a commission of a swan using “huge amounts of pink and purple” with the words “she believed in the journey”. This is the end result. The women who commission it was thrilled and hopefully it brings a smile to your face as well.
The 19th season of Arts in the Park kicked off a few weeks ago and I got to be the demonstrating visual artist for the first week of the free lunch time summer festival. Over the course of the week I created a couple of pieces so that the public could see the work created from start to finish. You’ll be able to take an up-close and personal look at these at the upcoming Arts Up Front Festival. I also […]
Tyler Kuhn, the amazing and talented photographer who documents all of my art for me, has been incredibly tied up with some filmmaking projects which has kept him from getting me my recent artwork images. But he finally had a chance to catch up – which means that I can take today to finish catching up the blog – hurray! We start the process with sharing with you all of the work from my recent solo show Colour Theory. The […]
Continuing on with today’s blog catch-up, I wanted to share a set of images taken by the talented Tyler Kuhn of Nakai Theatre‘s 2015 Homegrown Theatre Festival which I had the honour of producing. The theatre art showcased was diverse and exciting and I was really thrilled to be involved.
It has been crazy busy recently which has kept me from properly updating the blog – but that ends today! Over the course of the day I plan to catch the blog up for all of you, and I’ll start by sharing a set of photos from Cannibal the Musical taken by the wonderful Bruce Barrett. I’m exciting for you to get a glimpse inside the play that took up so much of my Spring.
