It was at the beautiful Waterfall Building, and three of my paintings were part of the show. The final episode of Real Housewives of Vancouver was also aired at the event.

Pictures, Video New Painting Featured in STAVOC music video!


My latest painting “Birdsong” is featured in a video with music by STAVOC and Dephorm, aka Steven Kitchen. As Barry Ostash of STAVOC says, there is ‘Unity Through Music.’ This video certainly demonstrates that, with us all working together despite Steven Kitchen being across the ocean in Liverpool, UK. I love how people can be brought together through the universal language of art and music!

You can check out the video on YouTube. Enjoy!

Events, Pictures News Director for Hubble (STScI) Visits My Studio!


On Friday, January 14th, 2011, I had dinner with Ray Villard, the News Director for Hubble. It was great having a one-on-one conversation with him, and hearing the latest news. It was also fascinating to hear about how it feels to be the first ones to see the amazing, mind-blowing views Hubble brings us.

After dinner, Ray came to my studio to see my paintings of Hubble images. It was in 2008 that I was first inspired to create paintings based on Hubble images, and I showed him a selection of paintings from then until now. He also got to see my latest work in progress!

It was truly an honour to have Ray visit my studio. It was wonderful to hear his comments, and get his feedback on my work. Of course while he was there, he was also able to check out the 18′ telescope designed and built by Craig Breckenridge. It was certainly an inspiring evening…

Events, Pictures Private Art Event at my Studio!


Last week, I had a special event to celebrate my new art studio, located within a telescope workshop. What an amazing night!!! The guests all had fun and enjoyed seeing the art, and of course seeing the huge 18 foot telescope under construction!

So many people told me what great energy and warmth they felt in the space. I am truly grateful to those people who so generously offered me their time and talent to make it such a great time for everyone – Jerry the DJ, Dan the photographer, Mik for bartending, Cindi for helping me hostess, and of course Craig and Jill for their endless kindness and support.
