I am excited to share that my show Inside Out is coming up at the end of the week, running from June 24 to July 10, 2022, at Galerie Old Chelsea, in the picturesque town of Old Chelsea, Quebec. After being delayed twice due to COVID it is finally happening! 
 

The experience of living under so much isolation and restrictions, inspired the title for the show. Being alone so much these last two years was great for my creativity. It gave me the freedom to paint as much and for as long as I wanted, every day. As an intuitive painter, I don’t have an idea of what I will paint when I begin, rather I follow the breadcrumbs borne of happy accidents resulting from layer upon layer of paint and collage, following what feels right to me. The resulting narrative always surprises me in how it reflects not only my inner world during the pandemic, but also perhaps the collective experience as well. 
 

I am looking forward to seeing the paintings hanging in the gallery space. I hope that if you are in the area or would like a beautiful day trip from surrounding areas, please come by and say hello!
