The Button Factory Arts Centre in downtown Waterloo is a wonderful facilitator of community arts in their region. The exhibit is open to all visual artists in Ontario, but really showcases the quality of art in and around it's own arts community. I was happy to receive an Honourable Mention for "Waterloo Shadow Play". Button Factory Arts, 25 Regina Str. S., Waterloo, Ontario

In the fall of 2015 it was my pleasure to be an artist-in-residence at Spark Box Studio in Picton, Ontario. Master printmaker Kyle and Chrissy worked with me daily to meet my objective of gaining a working knowledge of "non-toxic" metal etching techniques that I was able to bring back to create with in my own studio.

This is when I have a chance to show what I've been creating since last year's tour. The artists of the 16th Annual Brant Studio Tour invite you to celebrate the arts in Brant County. Venture into their working studios and see what inspires our many and varied artists to create. Representing a wide range of disciplines, media and styles - traditional to contemporary, classical to quirky, you will see 2 and 3 dimensional works-in-progress as well as finished art on display. This is an ideal time to purchase directly from the artist.
