This is where I create and display my work. These are photos from 2018, but I’ve already been changing things up and creating more spaces to show art. I’m considering having a guest artist from time to time in 2019, especially while most of my larger works will be on display during my solo exhibition in June! More info below, and coming soon!
My art studio is situated on Brofoco Drive, in one of the most desired residential locations within the town of Bracebridge. Our home, pictured above, sits back from the road and behind it are the remains of the Brobst forest, where birds are plentiful and other wildlife visit on occasion. We encourage pollinators and we feed the birds (as well as squirrels, inadvertently), but we do not leave out garbage or compost for others. Aside from a couple of elusive creatures (on the ground or in the air) which do their regular rounds in the wintertime looking for small rodents, the others just pass through and sometimes we’re very lucky to witness it happening (even more so, if my camera is at the ready). These creatures usually end up in a painting, sooner or later.
There are 2 entryways to the gallery, one of which is the old breezeway, which is now a finished entry that will also display some of my art this year. The main entry to the gallery is the far door at the end of the concrete walkway that is flanked by perennials. In May this year, I am planning to open up a circular path that takes visitors through the gallery & studio, as well as the screened-in porch and the backyard, where gardens and forest will invite you to take a peaceful pause and enjoy their beauty.
I will, of course, be showing art in process and on the easels. I’m always working on something, and might even be painting outdoors in the backyard.
Workshops are also in the future. I will update my website and Facebook art page with upcoming events.
Meanwhile, I am currently preparing for an upcoming solo art exhibition in Huntsville, Ontario, at the Partners Hall Gallery in the Algonquin Theatre. That show runs from May 31 until June 26, 2019. The opening reception is June 15th from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
