Women's Work in Bygone Times

Montgomery's Inn
4709 Dundas Str. West
Community Room


Besides participating in 12 collective shows, 
I had a solo exhibit STORY HOUSES at Montgomery's Inn, 
where I was invited to give a very well received slide show presentation.


I also attended the June CSPWC week-long Watercolour Symposium in Cape Breton,
and took a 2-day Water Media workshop with Momin Khan in the fall.

Plus visited several times my elderly mother in Switzerland, as usual.

2018 IN  REVIEW:

Participated in 19 collective exhibits and events [for details see News -- Past Exhibits], 
had 3 solo shows, 
took a week-long watercolour workshop with Ron Hazell 
to perfect painting water in all its forms,
and visited my ailing elderly mother in Switzerland multiple times.


2017  IN  REVIEW:
Participated in the DVAC and TWS Spring & Fall shows celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary, 
and in 7 other group shows at John B. Aird Gallery, Artusiasm Gallery & The Freedom Factory
[see 'Past Exhibits' for details]

I  travelled for three months through New Zealand, enjoying Summer at the antipodes, and also visited Switzerland three times.


In the second half of 2017 I have been deeply affected by the loss of my 95-year-old father. 
I am mourning him still. 


2016 IN  REVIEW:

I had 3 solo exhibits and participated in 10 collective shows during 2016, 
between four trips to Switzerland to care for my parents.

In June & July, I travelled across Newfoundland - pictures and comments to be found on Facebook.
Some of the paintings were displayed in the OPAS show, the others somewhere later.

I have also been affected by the decline of my elderly parents and their poor health, 
and that has obviously influenced my art. 
I find trees continue to express my emotions and thoughts well, as you can see here:

2015  IN  REVIEW:

During this year I participated in seven collective exhibits and had two solo shows.

I also attended several inspiring art classes over the Summer:

= Printmaking at CTS with Dawn Hemmy

Elliptoid, scored paper construction       Persistence, lt.ed. etching on Japanese paper               Map, rice paper and ink


2014  IN  REVIEW:

At the beginning of 2014 I focused on finishing my 3-year visual art programme at the Art Centre, 
graduating from CTS at the end of June.   During that time, I developed three series of works:

                                                            = Gestation/ Germination, a series of sculptures, installations and 3-D pods
                                                            = Groves, a series of abstracted acrylic paintings and drawings
                                                            = Fractured, a series of large acrylic paintings with palette knives

                                                            Gestating, hydrocal & cotton mesh                                 Summer Grove, abstract acrylic
                                                            sculpture, January 2014 [detail]                                      painting, March 2014   [detail]  

In September 2014 I went painting outdoors with OPAS 
for most of a week in Killarney, and another week in Killbear Provincial Park.

Between October and December 2014 I had 4 solo exhibits 
and participated in one collective show.
