Springtime Art & Celebrations!

Soooooooo this Spring was a very busy and I cannot wait to share it with you! I have had a fabulous creative time with 4 big events.

#1. I was invited to be a part of a very well organzied Gypsy-Bohemian-Anne of Green Gables day for a lovely young lady and her friends. I hand painted 11 journals, where the party goers were to finish off the eyes, hair and mixed media embellishments . Plus I had some time to create and inspire with these adventure goers. IMG_2507 #2. I had the pleasure of teaching three 1.5 hour workshops with 90 young women of leadership that will be heading into high school next year. I created a mini introduction art/bullet journal for them to work in. I wanted it to be a way of taking some of the stress off of moving up to the older grades and having more classes in their schedules, while keeping it fun and friendly.

#3. NEW Art Instalment: I was invited to create some bright & fun art on canvas to be displayed at our local Menchies in a local shopping area called Morgan Crossing (ADDRESS: 15775 Croydon Drive, Unit 120, Surrey, BC V3S 0G2). The ceiling is very high and the walls are large, so I went out and bought a few large blank canvases and new paints 😉 . All of the painting are for sale and once they sell, I get to instal new painting!!! Therefore I invite you all to come on down to South Surrey, BC, have some refreshing treats and gaze upon the fun work. My largest piece , ‘Clowning Around’ which is 3 feet by 4 feet, is one of my most favourite paintings that I have ever done!

AND THEN #4 after the ART was hung, it was time to play and celebrate my birthday! Thank you for sharing in my adventures and for all of your support! xoxoxo
