2020 EVENTS 


Most of my art shows have been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully the world will heal in the next year and I will be able to see all of you again next spring. The only show I will be in this year isP:

MYSTERY IN THE PARK - Algonquin Park Visitor`s Centre  Art Show

Hwy 60, Marker 43, Algonquin Park. 

Part of the proceeds of each art sale will go to the FRIENDS OF ALGONQUIN PARK for conservation efforts within the park.

I also found quiet inspiration this spring from the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the protests that are now happening around the world to shift the thinking, the laws and the cultural empathy towards our fellow man. "Rise Up, Rise Up" is my tribute to a gentleman and community leader.
