Once in a while you have a special opportunity like this to work alongside such talented people. It was a real privilege to participate in this public artwork as part of the Aluminum Quilting Society coordinated by David Hind.
A massive 15'x15' hand-engraved aluminum public artwork dedicated to artist Lawren Harris was unveiled Monday on what was the 132nd anniversary of the Group of Seven painter's birth in Brantford. Revealing La Landscape de Kanata, mounted on the west wall of the Brantford Public Library, caps off a series of Lawren Harris Week activities organized to raise awareness of the city's diverse cultural assets.

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.
