Hi Everyone! 

Recently I taught an Abstract Painting Workshop at Swintons’ Art. For those of you who took the workshop and wanted to see the power point presentation again, I am posting it here for your reference. Abstract Painting Workshop Demo  For anyone else, feel free to take a look and try out some of my suggestions!  The presentation outlined a method I often use for abstract painting, showing a painting evolving step by step. There are also examples from previous workshops and a few steps you can follow to begin your own abstract painting.  For anyone interested in taking a workshop, there is another Abstract full day workshop happening at Swinton’s Art on May 14th. To register, call 403-258-3500 and for further information, visit

Happy Painting Everyone!

I just want to thank everyone who came to see my work at the South Calgary Art Show & Sale this past weekend (Nov. 5th & 6th).  My work recieved lots of positive feedback and several people were interested in commissioning me to paint portraits of their pets. That should keep me busy for the next few months! 

I made a few friends and recieved contact information from several artists for future endeavours.  I was really impressed with the diversity of work at this show and look forward to showing with these artists again in the future. 

Now I have to get busy painting so I have lots of new things to show off at the next event!

Summer Workshops

June 24, 2010

This summer I will be teaching several “sampler” workshops at Swintons Art.  Check out Swinton’s website for details and dates at

Samplers are 3 hour workshops in which you can try out new media without the commitment of buying supplies.  You can choose any sampler in the following media:  Acrylic, pen & ink, drawing, oil and mixed media.

I will also be teaching a full one day workshop on Abstract painting.  This will be a step by step “how to” which is designed for new artists or painters new to abstract.  This workshop will take place on two seperate dates, August 24th and 25th.  Check out for more information.
