Kizmit Gallery

I will be showing a small collection of six 6x6 in paintings at Kizmit Gallery in Fort Langley, BC! Carole De Bathe, the owner, has her lovely little gallery right on the main street as you drive through town. She showcases many local BC artists and craftspeople and I'm excited to be a part of her creative roster.

This little collection will also be framed, so there's no need to find a framer once purchased. I hope these little gems will be well-received! I have so enjoyed painting them. It's been a nice change from the larger wildlife paintings I generally do. These little ones have proven to be a wonderful addition to my studio practice, and I'm happy to offer these now to clients in such a beautiful spot.

Goldenball Mercantile
Some exciting Spring news: I was recently contacted by Brooke Meeker of Goldenball Mercantile in Mission, BC to invite me to show my art in her soon-to-open gallery and high-end retail shop! Goldenball Mercantile is planning to open late spring with a cleverly curated offering of amazing decor, gifts and custom furnishing.

Immediately intrigued, I gave Brooke a call and quickly knew it would be a wonderful fit. I will be showing some of my wildlife art as well as other subjects alongside. I will have paintings of various sizes and subjects. My hope is to grow a local audience as well as expand a wider reach as news of Goldenball and our collaboration spreads.

I also love that Brooke's shop will be on First Avenue in Mission. I love that she is contributing to the growth and development of the community there, and in a historical section of downtown. I grew up in Mission, spent the first 20 years of my life there before moving to Vancouver for college. I again reside in the Fraser Valley only now in Chilliwack, about 30 mins East.

I'm thrilled to be a part of my hometown again via my artwork!

New Website

With 2020 behind us, and 2021 feeling like there's light at the end of the Covid-tunnel, I felt a new, fresh website was needed to celebrate.

Besides the new navigation, there's the new section called 'from the studio'. Over the past few years, I've been slowly working on new paintings, exploring new subjects, formats and painting 'styles'. I finally feel there's been some consistency of late so I've started to offer these works direct to clients as well as bringing a few into my galleries. Many have sold, and I continue to get positive feedback from clients as well as art-lovers and fellow artists, which all feeds the creative-fire.

I plan to continue to push into this new direction, alongside my wildlife paintings. There will be a new collab with a gallery (all about this in my next post!), where I'm hoping to get a larger market for these new works alongside my animals.

For now, I have my artwork organized as 'in galleries' (pretty self-explanatory) and 'in the studio' where the works can be inquired about directly to myself.

Yours in art,
