Welcome back to the AAW Art Newsletter. It's been a long time! A solo exhibition is on the horizon and the art studio is open for a holiday display. Please read on for announcements, new paintings and exhibition details...

TEMPO

A recently commissioned painting for a client who commented: “She is a master at capturing the simple beauty of water. Growing up near the water has created a fascination with how water constantly changes with the light, movement, and reflection. I also find it has an amazing calming effect. “
Tempo | 36x48 inches, oil on canvas 2021. Private collection.
THE SOUND
Recently installed in its new home. A painting inspired by the physics of sound waves and Howe Sound.

The Sound | 36x48 inches, oil on canvas 2020. Private collection.

VESUVIUS

Travelling back to its origins on Salt Spring Island. This painting was influenced by vivid memories of Island summers. The all-encompassing warmth, comfort, and sensations of the gulf coast.
Vesuvius | 30x30 inches, Oil on canvas, 2020. Private collection.

OUR LIVING WATERS

The subject of my artwork has come to the forefront in the news these days with unprecedented water events: torrential rains, mudslides and flooding. This is climate change in action. I hope through my artwork I can make a small difference. I will be partnering with this new conservation initiative this year.  Together we acknowledge the interconnected sacredness of water.

Our Living Waters

A shared measurement system to achieve the ambitious goal of all waters in Canada in good health by 2030!

THE PROCESS
The art commission process consists of a site visit, measurements, meetings, design considerations, watercolour mock-ups, studio preview and then the final oil painting.

RIP POINT

This painting was inspired by boating around the Gulf Islands. It references windsurfing reflections. The title and composition also hint at the fierce power of our coastal waterways, tides and rip currents. It has been added to a notable art collection in an architect designed home overlooking the
Burrard inlet. 

Rip Point | 24x72 inches Oil on canvas, 2021. Private collection.

EVENTIDE 

Designed to enhance the sunrises and sunsets from this Arbutus Ridge penthouse. From fiery shades of red to pastel purple hues, spectacular sunsets often ignite the skies from this vantage point.
The commission: "It’s a surprisingly rewarding process for everyone; often ending with tears of joy. It pushes me to try new things and switch up my colour palette. It’s an honour to do what I love and collaborate on a custom piece of artwork inspired by the client and their home."

Eventide | 30x48 inches, Oil on canvas, 2021. Private collection.

THE LAKE

A painting for a friend who grew up at the other end of the lake. It depicts the view between my waterfront and his. A milestone Birthday gift.

Installation: Quennell Lake | 20x30 inches Oil on canvas, 2020. Private residence, Seattle WA.

SHANGRI-LA

This painted surface radiates and dreams of an escape to an imagined paradise of colour, positive vibrations and ordered chaos. Art is an idyllic, sacred place of refuge. A custom painting for an architect designed home.
Shangri-La | 72x48 inches Oil on canvas 2020. 
Private collection.

ACTIVE PASS

This began as a sketch on a picnic table at the historic lighthouse, overlooking Active Pass this summer. A sparkling central reflection surrounded by warm golds. The colours representing summer on the west coast—dry grass and Arbutus complemented by the cool tones of the ocean.
Active Pass | 30x40 inches Oil on Canvas 2021. Private collection.
