It's All Part of the Journey

I am very happy to announce that I have a one woman show in North Grenville! As many already know, I lived and worked in Kemptville for 15 years and during this time made many friends and colleagues. In my previous post I spoke about the residency at Geraldine's Gallery, 1505 Hwy 43 in Kemptville, Ontario. Early in August, I enjoyed the experience of focusing on watercolour on the grounds of the heritage home this gallery owner Geraldine Taylor, artist, community activist owns.

Now I present works from my collection of the past 5 years called: It's All Part of the Journey, from August 20 to October 10. There are 18 works in the  encaustic medium I am so fond of. Come drop by, and browse in the large room to experience to rich textural display they offer.

I hope to see you there!

Artist's Residency at Geraldine's Gallery, Kemptville, On

Last week I drove down the 416 from my home in Aylmer, QC with all the equipment for watercolour and encaustics, fully prepared for a week of painting!

Nestled in the growing hub of Kemptville is a little oasis called Geraldine's Gallery in the midst of all the housing and commercial development. It is an art gallery with a remarkable collection of regional and Canadian artists, many of national acclaim. Geraldine Taylor also is a successful curator, gallery owner, real estate agent and community activist well known in eastern Ontario.

She also devotes part of her gallery to an Artist's Residency so that artists may take an extended time to work and be inspired by the art you see everywhere as you spend a week or a month.

I painted plein-air on the large heritage estate finding tiny delightful vignettes and enjoying the view for an hour or so.

October 14, 21, and 28 I am planning plain-air Saturdays during the breathtaking fall season this year. If you would like to join me or get further details, contact me at
