As you may know, some fellow local artists and I are creating and building an outdoor, solar powered, York boat shaped, art gallery on the Red River Mutual Skating Trial this January. This outdoor art gallery will not only be great for us blooming artists to show Winnipeg some of our new artwork, but will be great for Winnipeggers to have a new winter activity to get to.
We Winnipeggers are known for our winters, so lets bundle up and do some new and exciting winter activities this season! How many people will be able to say they went to an art gallery on a frozen river?
It’s an extremely exciting project and we are so excited for everyone to experience an art gallery on a frozen river, but we need your help. We just launched our Kickstarter campaign to help us out. The money raised from this campaign will help us out with the building materials, and the solar lighting we need for this gallery, since it gets dark so early in the winter. Please check out the link and help spread the word. Tell your friends, co-workers, neighbours, strangers, you name it! Every little bit of help is greatly appreciated! Thank you everyone!

A Winnipeg Artist
Hi everyone and thank you for visiting my website. I am a Winnipeg artist and have a Bachelors of Fine Arts Honours from the University of Manitoba’s School of Art. I am a painter, a textile artist, and an illustrator.
While working towards my Fine Arts degree, I have shown in many local galleries including Cre8ery Gallery, Outworks Gallery, Graffiti Gallery, the Winnipeg Art Gallery and aceart. Also, I have had solo shows at the Gallery of Student Art (GoSA) at the University of Manitoba and at Tara Davis Studio Boutique.
Animals are a main source of inspiration in my artwork. Mostly dogs and local animals. Dogs often appear in my paintings. Ever since I rescued a dog years ago, I have been inspired to paint dogs. We see our pets in a different light than the casual observer, and that’s what I try to capture. In my textile fabric artwork, my hometown is my inspiration. Scenes of Winnipeg and Manitoban animals are the subjects I am most influenced by. Most recently, mythological creatures have also been created with fabric and yarn. Custom commissions are available in both mediums.
Most recently, I have been working towards my dream of becoming a children’s book illustrator. In 2013 my first book was published. Daisy’s Biggest Success was released in 2013 with positive reviews. It was on the best sellers list for Children’s books for four weeks in a row at Canada’s largest independent booksellers, McNally Robinson’s.
