Welcome to my world of painting and creating… 

When Sea Meets Sky (22"x18")
“When Sea Meets Sky” sold at the 2017 Art Lovers’ Affair Live Auction at Hernder Estate Wines, St. Catharines

Hard to believe that it is still only February in this 150th anniversary year.

The temperatures have reached double digits, the snow has melted away, and this year’s Art Lovers’ Affair Show & Sale is now in the books.  What a success! Thank you to everyone who came out to support us, and especially those who bought some original art.  

I am bidding a fond farewell to “When Sea Meets Sky” which sold at the Live Auction.  Special thanks to the dear couple who bought it – I wish you many years of happiness with it in hanging in your home.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this evening so special!

Hernder Estate Wines was indeed a special place for this annual event; our Saturday evening Art Lovers’ Affair Live Auction and Celebration was particularly successful with almost half of the paintings in the live auction sold that night and even more sales off the boards.With the wine flowing, the hors d’oeuvres flying, and the sliders, well, sliding, Joe Pillitteri, our emcee and auctioneer, teamed up with Tricia Cole, our jazz and pop entertainer, for a lot of laughs and great fun all evening long.   We’re looking forward to an even better show next year!


My exhibits have rapidly shifted from St. Catharines to Toronto and Milton.  See several of my paintings, including my intrepid “Gumshoe” at C’est What? Brew Pub and Eatery on Front Street near Church, in the St. Lawrence Market area, and my Touch of Love Series at Mama Mila’s Café in Thompson Square, Milton.

Two receptions coming for new exhibits you don’t want to miss:  Poets and Painters is around the corner on Saturday, March 4th at the Niagara Falls Public Library, and the new exhibit at McMaster Innovation Centre will be launched on March 30th.  I will keep you updated about these and all my new paintings, exhibits, and more, in Easel Tales and my Blog Posts.
