The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

Fall is a buzz of activity.....still trying to take it all in and enjoy the moments....









It has been such a buzzing time of activity..with lots to enjoy ....I am trying to savour every moment..I can't believe however, how fast the fall seems to be speeding by...so instead I try to pause each day and enjoy the moments....
Here are some photos of a recent 5 week encaustic program I taught at Globe Studios in Kitchener over Sept/Oct.
I enjoyed this process and time with the students, loved the excitement they felt in trying the new techniques....
I attended the Gladstone Hotel opening this past friday, a group show with three other artists, Lucy Kovaliv, Amy Zhang and Whitney Taylor. The group exhibit will be running all week from October 23rd to Oct. 29th. We had a great turn out at the reception, even if there was a rough start up,...since due the stormy weather...Gladstone Hotel had a blackout for the first 45 minutes or so of the opening. More to come on this opening soon.

Hi Catrina:
Ys i am loving making my nichos..but they are not in metal other than the tin roof....I have been doing a whole series on butterflies ..which have their own nichos built for them....the glass part doesn't open at this point in my nicho building development...but I am so enjoying this process....

thanks for asking.
