Like many of you I've been startled, disturbed and heartbroken by the recent events in Japan. The last few nights my husband and I have spent watching coverage of the tsunami and subsequent nuclear threat on television and feeling quite helpless. It feels so incredibly huge, so overwhelming sometimes that it's hard to imagine what on earth we can do to help. So I was gratified to see a facebook invitation from Guy Berube of the Petite Mort Gallery in Ottawa to submit artwork for their upcoming benefit show "Here for There - Artists for Japan" on Saturday March 19th. It's an exhibition and sale which is entirely to benefit organizations which provide relief to Japan.
So, if you happen to be in Ottawa on the evening of Saturday March 19th, please stop by the Petite Mort Gallery from 6:30- 11:00pm, and buy some artwork, or simply contribute some money to Japan Relief. My work below, "Craving You 2" has nothing to do with Japan or disaster relief, but it was simply what I had on hand at the moment. Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm thankful to have an opportunity to offer even a small contribution.
A blog on art, roller derby and life.
I'm an artist and mother of two in Courtenay, BC. I've completed a project called the "Madonna and Child Project," and I'm now working on a series of roller derby inspired drawings. In my spare time I play roller derby with the Brick House Betties.
