Miniature Painting demo at Gallery 8

Spring is almost here! And so is the 8th anniversary show at Gallery 8, located on Salt Spring Island, in mid April. I’m working on several new miniatures for this show and will be doing a demonstration in the gallery during the opening weekend. So if you’d like to see the show, or chat with me and try your hand at painting in miniature, stop by for a visit. Dates and details to come, so please check back. 🙂

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and all good things for 2017! Chilly January days mean hunkering down in the studio and exploring new ideas and planning for the year to come. The gray rain and muted landscape are beautiful for winter photo shoots, but mainly they serve  an excuse to drink copious amounts of tea and be cozy in the studio.

I recently painted this little miniature as a nice reminder of warmer days and the sunshine colours of summer in BC.

Small Works Show at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island

I had such a good time on Friday evening at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island, enjoying great company and a fantastic collection of beautiful art rendered on a small scale. Paintings, sculpture, pottery and so much more can be seen over the next several weeks during the Christmas Exhibition of Small Works. I am delighted to be a part of this show, which runs from Friday November 25th to January 3rd, and hope you will stop by to see it if you are in the area!

83 Years of Miniature Art

A few months ago I painted two tiny miniatures and put them in antique frames, then sent them off to the international miniature show presented by the MPSGS in Maryland, USA. I’m so pleased to share that they were accepted into the show and one of them was awarded Best In Realism. Participating in this historical show is truly an honour.

Here is a link to it if you’d like to see the wide range of miniature art in all of its tiny glory:
