Fun with Photoshop
These were done with some figure drawings I had in a sketchbook. The weather has been so dull, I needed some colour in my life.

Spring is Almost Sprung...

...and Pop Up Workshops are popping up all over!

I'm very excited to see my workshops happening all over the GTA and beyond.

Saturday, June 24, I am pleased to be teaching a one-day workshop with the fabulous Meta4 Gallery in Port Perry. They feature beautiful fine arts and crafts by Ontario artists and artisans, and are a hub for art education and community involvement. I'm really looking forward to working with these enthusiastic people.

Saturday, July 15, 
 Paper Engineering: Pop-Up Workshop at Haliburton School of Art and Design - a full day workshop. See the PDF file for HSAD Summer programs here.

My Artful PopUp Workshops are suitable for all skill levels. I work closely with my students to ensure a successful outcome for everyone! The emphasis is on learning Paper Engineering techniques that can be adapted to your artistic vision. We use painted and decorative papers, decorative punches and other embellishments to bring your pieces to life. If you've taken one of my workshops before, you'll know that I'm flexible in my approach and open to requests. If you like working with paper (origami, making books, collage, scrapbooking) you'll love making your own Pop Up pieces.

SynStudio 'Gathering of Masters'
These are drawings from a recent 5-day workshop in Montreal at SynStudio Art School. Luminaries such as James Gurney, Samantha Youssef, Matt Rhodes, Terryl Whitlatch, Jeff Simpson and others. It was a great weekend and a lot fun. Also - the Montreal Jazz Festival was on, so the streets were full of people and music. Fabulous!

Messing around in Ps
One can really fall down the rabbit-hole when one starts playing around with imagery, filters and such. A happy afternoon spent trying to make up my mind which image I liked best. This is one of many. I couldn't decide so I saved 'em all!
