Isthmus Bay Kalein

A Chromatic Life opens today at Westland Gallery.

A Chromatic Life is a paired show featuring my and Anna Clarey’s recent work at Westland Gallery in London ON. Anna and I are both deeply inspired by the outdoors and though our styles are very different, you will certainly get a sense of the deep impact the Ontario landscape has on our art and psyches.

Show details here.

It’s always interesting  to see the works hung in a different setting and context than the one in which they were painted. There’s a new allowing for them to have Been Made, after the Conceiving Of, and then, the Making Of them.

During the show, I’ll be sharing several of my pieces from the collection along with some thoughts around each. You are most welcome to follow along and comment here on my blog, or elsewhere on social media if we are connected.

The first piece is Isthmus Bay Kalein.

Prose Paintings




I am ten days into a series that I am creating on paper as a daily study. I don’t know how many I will complete, but at minimum I’ve decided to make forty pieces. Each piece is an original acrylic work on archival 9×12 140lb paper and is partnered with 2-3 lines of my original prose. I am still trying to sort out the underpinnings of how this will all go, but for now, I invite you to follow along on my Facebook page and here on my blog for daily reveals.

I ( perhaps regrettably) will be open to considering prompts and if you sign up for my ridiculously irregular newsletters, I may get better at sending them and you’ll get a chance to win one of the Prose Paintings prettily framed and everything, at the end of the series.

Stay tuned for more updates!

New Gallery Representation in Montreal

Happy Late Summer, I hope you are still getting outside a lot as we shift towards fall. I know I don’t want to miss a thing. September always feels more like the beginning of the new year to me than January does. Things, including me, feel invigorated and inspired by travel, rested and ready for what’s next.

In keeping with that vibrancy, I’m happy to announce that I am now being represented exclusively in the Montreal area by Galerie Bloom.

Needless to say, I am very excited to be hanging with their roster of wonderful artists in this gorgeous space in Old Montreal. They are located at 224, rue St-Paul Ouest Montréal, Québec H2Y 1Z9

I was very grateful to friends who were willing and able to help out with transporting the first shipment of works to the gallery in the juicily colourful Madmatters company van.
