What Do Pie, Cornwall, Skydiving and Brooches have in common??


Pie? Cornwall? Skydiving? Brooches? A rather disparate set of ideas, and yet they are all part of  the spring art explosion for Kaleidoscope Art.

How did this one happen?

Transcontinental Divide is a collaborative group exhibition with Gallery 101 and Helen Pitt Gallery (Vancouver) and is part of BC Scene.  The 5 Ottawa artists in the exhibition were assigned to develop an art idea/concept that would be swapped with 5 Vancouver artists to create.  In turn, we are creating works Vancouver artists to be exhibited at Gallery 101.  My assigned was skydiving.  Did I jump out of a plane?  You’ll have to attend the exhibition to find out...

Opening April 21, 6pm-11pm, part of the Swarm Galleries Tour

Flower brooches


I will be conducting some spring Brooch and Hair Accessories workshops at my shiny-newly expanded studio.  These fuzzy and cheerful brooches will add fluff and delight to any spring wardrobe.  Fun and funky hair clips will also be demonstrated.  And the best part is you made them yourself.  Grab a gal pal and pick a workshop time that works for you.
