My current available works…
Hello! I have a few new paintings up on display at Baked Café here in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. The show is up from February 7-mid March, 2014. Would love it if you could stop in and see the works!
Have a beautiful day!
Below: “Mia, Millennium Trail”, oil on canvas, 24″x18″, available.
New portrait of my friend Mia who came up from Toronto this past fall to visit. She fell in love with The Yukon…and who wouldn’t?
“Mia, Millennium Trail”, oil on canvas, 24″x18″
Last fall shortly after I had moved to The Yukon Territory I went for a hike on Tally Ho Mountain with friends. The ice was so beautiful and the snow hadn’t arrived in earnest yet. A new form of water to try to capture!
A new portrait of my friend Emilie…another Ontario transplant like myself. Birds of a feather:)
Oil on canvas, 30″x40″, available at Abbozzo Gallery, Toronto, Ontario.
New painting hot off the easel! “Mia, Yukon River”, oil on panel, 6″x12″.
It is available at Abbozzo Gallery in Toronto, Ontario.
The environment is present, continually here. The light, the temperature, this river, all are hypnotic and the transitory nature of all of these elements is palpable every day. The Yukon River in particular tends to hold many people in its spell.
There has been quite a bit online writing about my swimming portraits lately. I am very thankful that these pieces have resonated with people as much as they have.
Temperatures are dropping here in Whitehorse but I am painting up a storm and keeping the studio fires burning!

Here is what is on the easel currently. A portrait of my new friend and fellow Yukoner Emilie. She is a wonderful person and I am thrilled to paint her. This portrait is 30″x40″ and will be heading to Abbozzo Gallery as soon as is it complete and dry! http://abbozzogallery.com
Hello friends and art patrons!
As I settle into my new home in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory I wanted to update you on some art news.
My painting “Chiaroscuro Cat” will be auctioned off at an upcoming fundraiser organized by PAWS/LA, an organization based in Los Angeles which works to connect companion animals with whose who need them most. The auction is on October 20th in Los Angeles. You can find out more information here: http://www.pawsla.org/pet-art-2013/ I am thrilled to be a part of this event again and love knowing my art will go to help those in need.
Another painting is involved in an upcoming auction. This one is in Burlington, Ontario and funds raised will go to the Joseph Brant Memorial Foundation. “At Greenspond”, oil on panel, 24″x12″ will be up for auction on December 11th at the Royal Botanical Gardens. The auction is part of a holiday/Christmas gala. This painting was inspired by my travels in Newfoundland. The ocean, the wind, the incredible freshness of that place will be forever in my memory.
I have been berry picking and making jam up here in Whitehorse. There are so many ideas for paintings I don’t know where to start! New works are always able to be seen at Abbozzo Gallery in Toronto, Ontario.
I hope your weekend is wonderful!
