Fall can be a time for growth!

I thought I'd do a round up of news and events for readers who don't yet subscribe to my email news.
So here's what's going on in my autumn:



I'm taking some time off of teaching weekly classes this year to focus on my studio and to do some travelling.   The latter includes 2 weeks in London and Paris during which I intend to see as much art as humanly possible!  If the Eiffel Tower happens to be in my line of sight as I walk to a museum or gallery, that's a bonus.

In the meantime, I'm offering private in-person and online instructional critiques: 

I've found that there's an uncomfortable, often discouraging time in artists' lives between learning how to paint, and finding their personal style and genre - their artistic path. Artists can stall on this plateau for a long time, feeling that they're not progressing, but knowing that the answer is not a long-term class. I can help you out of this stalled state.

I'm now offering private critiquing online or in my Calgary studio for painters who want an honest eye, and concrete illustrations and suggestions for how to move forward in their artistic practises.  For information on process and pricing, please see my website.


New Gallery Representation!  


I've added a new gallery to the list of those that show my work, and I'm thrilled!
LePrince Fine Art now represents me in beautiful Charleston, SC.  Hurricane Florence had me worried when she blasted into the coast a few days after my work went up on the walls, but Charleston was lucky, and so was I.  Check it out if you're in the area.

Super good article!


Painters' health and safety has always been a priority for me, and I was given an opportunity to reach a very broad audience in August.  Artsy magazine commissioned me to write an article outlining both the hazards, and the easy safety measures that artists can take to keep themselves healthy in their studios.  I'm biased, but I still think that every painter should read this, and send it to their painting buddies!

Happy painting!
