Artist talk from the recent Shoe Repair show

After months of planning, focused effort and anticipation, a most wonderful experience unfolded on Gabriola island this May. My solo show of artwork, “Shoe Repair and other consequences of walking”, had a hugely successful two day run at the Keep Calm gallery. A warmer reception to the show could not have been imagined. Guests thronged to the event from as far away as Vancouver. Many new friends were made, and most of the pieces found new homes on the west coast.

Deepest thanks to gallery owner and artist, my dear sister Sheila, for making this show happen.

At Sheila’s invitation, I gave an artist’s talk on the Saturday. About thirty of us were all outdoors on a perfectly gorgeous afternoon. With the birds chirping their encouragement, I spoke publicly about my art practice for the first time. Please click on the links below to see what happened.
