I'm excited to announce that some of my latest work will be showing at the Peachland Art Gallery from Oct 6th through Nov. 4th. This Kelowna Painters Studio Society show opening will be Sat Oct 6th from 12 to 3pm. We hope to see you at the opening but you can check the PAG website for open hours outside of the opening afternoon. 

The KPSS are a group of 12 established local artists who paint together each Wednesday at the Rotary Art Centre Sept to April. We've been painting for the show with excitement this year and will have 82 paintings hung.  

In 2016, I painted a banner of a night scene of the Paramount theatre on Bernard Avenue as a fun tribute to the downtown theatre we still really miss. The banners were installed by the City of Kelowna in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday. I've rendered it on a large birch panel for this show as “Last Night at the Paramount”.

One of the other large paintings is a view that took my breath away at Arrowleaf Winery this June.  The others are all Okanagan views from some of my bike rides. We spent a lot of time on our bikes this summer prepping for our bike ride around Holland in September and so often I felt grateful to live in this great little city. There will also be one from my Coastal series that is a favourite spot at Hopkins Landing on the Sunshine Coast.

I wish you all the best this Thanksgiving season!
