"OUR COMMUNITY" CLAY MURAL INSTALATION



8 x 18 foot mural
This project was recently completed at Mount Royal School. It is 18 feet long at 8 feet high and has taken up quite a bit of space in the library. Each student did a clay piece which was then attached (with the help of my trusty assistant, Rosemary) to the painted mural background.
A handful of teachers helped me paint the background that I designed for the clay pieces.
I think it looks quite amazing.

BUTTERFLIES IN CLAY

This project is perfect for Ks and Grade 1s. Great for Mother's Day gifts too. We used clay stamps to make awesome decorations that are highlighted by the two colour washes with acrylic paint.

Grade 5 & 6 "puzzle box" birds in clay

These birds are a lovely Mother's Day gift. They open up to reveal a wee storage area in their bellies perfect for mom's jewelry or other treasures.

Here are some hot off the palette paintings for Square 1 Coffee Shop in Edmonton.
Enjoy some amazing beverages and lovely treats at this cool cafe (the chocolate orange cupcake and lavender tea are especially yummy!). Good thing painting burns more calories than running.





Thank You Square One for such a great venue!!

So far 6 paintings have sold at my local coffee shop, Square 1. Love this place. They make a coconut cream latte that's amazing.
Happy to see that these have gone to good homes...








Annunciation Catholic School is turning 50!

Here are some highlights from my time with this elementary school. The theme is the cross and we sought inspiration from a number of First Nation artists & artisans (Alex Janvier, Maxine Noel, Norval Morrisseau, Linus Woods, "painting with found tools" & the birch bark canoe).
















These ones are in phase one right now--stay tuned for the crosses to come...
pretty awesome impressionistic brushwork from Ks and grade ones.
