I had some wonderful news recently. I found out I'm participating in a group show called "Mothers" at the Woman Made Gallery in Chicago. My drawing "Gladys and Elizabeth" will be showing alongside other wonderful up and coming female artists on the 5th of November until December 23rd.
Best of all... I'm going to Chicago! I'm going to leave the kids with their wonderful father and hop a flight to the windy city! I'm going to stay a few days, see a few sights, hop a few galleries and attend my own opening. I'm SO thrilled! I will be blogging about all this, so stay tuned.
My other good news is I was accepted into the Canadian Institute of Portrait Artists biannual exhibition! My piece "Ailen and Jet Jazz" will be exhibited at the Mount Royal University, second floor art gallery space at the Bisset School of Business. The show will be up from the 21st of September until October 30th.
The best part of this news is that I have enough airmiles to take me AND the kids to Calgary for the opening and awards ceremony! Once again I'm thrilled. I will take lots of pictures and blog about it afterwards.
To put myself in the mood for Chicago... here's one of my favourite Sinatra songs:
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.
