Hey! If you're not busy on SATURDAY NIGHT - AND YOU ARE IN VANCOUVER - I will be in Railtown at the Vancouver Urban Winery doing a little custom script for folks willing to make it out that night! Come have wine and let me create something custom and MAGICAL for you. ;)
PLEASE join me at my newest (and longest coming) art show.
Finally, I am releasing my personal collection of polar bear paintings. I have spent several years creating pieces inspired by the magic of the polar bear. It’s hard to explain my fascination + admiration for the world's largest land predator... I guess I can only say, they have taken a hold on my heart + inspired me beyond measure.
I have learned so much from the bears and also the incredible people and places I have come to know because of polar bears. Deeply personal + meaningful to me, I have not publicly shown this collection before, but the time has come for me to show you what I see in the beautiful white bears of the North.
It would mean so much to me if you could join me at the opening.
Thursday MAY 14th opens 7pm artist talk 8pm 419 Graham Avenue / Winnipeg
On Friday MAY1 or Saturday MAY2 (2015) - please come visit me at my exciting #kbscript pop up! I have have adopted a gorgeous, mini, magic gallery for the month of May and I have so many good things to share with you. Script. Polar bears. ART. First in the line up: LIVE script. Custom script. BIG script. This will be my LAST #kbscript popup of 2015 in Winnipeg. Come say hi. Come get MOTHER'S DAY gifts. Christmas gifts. Wedding gifts. Come see what I have been working on. Come get a photo of my BIGGEST work (Hopeful Tears). Come see a sample of what I do for YOUareAWESOMEco.com...
Come share a moment with me. Let me create something beautiful for you before I take a break to have spinal surgery. In fact, the truth is that I am hoping to sell all my favourite pieces to raise enough money to go to Germany for the surgery that will correct grade three Spondylolisthesis + keep me out of a wheelchair.
I would love to see your friendly face! I will have all kinds of one-of-a-kind items, originals, script-amazingness and things I have never shared before. AND MACARONS! There will be macarons!
I will be announcing dates for the release of my polar bear show as well as a few other interesting + beautiful events. I can't wait to show you what I have been working on. I am so grateful for this opportunity to share.
I lucked into an opportunity at the Assiniboine Park Zoo last month. They wanted silhouettes of each of their bears at their factual heights so folks could see how they measure up to a real bear. Hey. I'm not fussy if it means DRAWING POLAR BEARS AND HANGING OUT WITH PEOPLE WHO HANG OUT WITH POLAR BEARS. Actually, I will certifiably JUMP ON any oppotunity to engage a community in learning about + loving on bears. It was super fun! It was actually the most fun I've had since painting on ice! It's hard to explain that - but this was a memorable and beautiful experience for many reason and I am so grateful. I will take any opportunity to foster conversation + education pointed at wildlife preservation, understanding and love.
“In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.” ~ BABA DIOUM
I think it was a hit with old + young. People... and bears.
