Welcome Back to Otterville

This won’t really be news to you if you read the last post but it never hurts to put the reminder out again…. it’s less than three weeks until Welcome Back to Otterville!  If you’ve never made it out here maybe this is the year.  We all certainly welcome you, whether you are just touring, a collector, an artist, a gallery owner, a decorator, a homeowner with too much empty wall space, or someone who needs that perfect gift.

We have some new additions to the tour this year which are slightly outside the village but very close by. One is Ralph Moore & Sons, a local business specializing in bird seed and feeders and all things birds.  Another is In Bloom Designs, featuring unique jewellery by Jillian and Kaleb Driedger at the old general store in Hawtrey.

For a preview of the stops on this year’s tour, you can visit our website’s Shops & Studios page, or you can go to our Facebook page.  To find us, there is a convenient map available.  Once you get here, look for the yellow flags to help you find each studio.

I will look forward to seeing many new and many familiar faces the weekend of November 21 & 22.  If I’ve met you before, please remind me, as I have a really hard time with faces and names going together, especially when outside the context of originally meeting someone.

See you here!




Oxford Studio Tour 2015

It’s April!  Hopefully no one is fooling you today, or if they are, it’s all good fun.

There are still a few days left in A Fractal Universe at the Station Arts Centre in Tillsonburg.  I’m not sure what their hours are on Easter weekend so if you are thinking of going, please check with them.  They are not usually open on Sundays, anyway.  I’ve been very pleased with the turnout for the show and feedback from my peers.  Thank you to all who have taken the time to view it.

Soon, many of them will be home again, though a few have been designated for elsewhere.  Then it’s time to get my studio and gallery ready for the Oxford Studio Tour!  There will be a few new fractal prints ready for the studio tour, as well as some new paintings.  I hope that many of you are making plans to come.

Here is the poster with some information.  For more, please visit our website.

Pics of the current show

This will take you to today’s post on my other site.  Just a few Pics of the current show.  Hope you can make it out to see the show in person if you are in the area!  Thank you to those who those who did come to the opening on Friday, and to all those who came out to the original show in London last summer!



Show Opens Tonight 7-9 pm


Happy New Year!

I sincerely thank all who have looked at this site in the past year.  As an artist who has not obtained gallery representation, who lives in a very tiny town, I depend on the views my art gets online, in whatever form it happens.  New eyes on my art are always welcome, and if you are one of the people who has been generous enough to share any of my posts or pages, it is so appreciated!

I am looking back on the past year with a sense of accomplishment since I finally had the fractal show I’ve been working towards for the past three years.  If you somehow missed all that, it is covered in my other blog (new this past year) fractaliart.com.  That was a very satisfying experience.  (I felt like, for once, I had it together.)  So I’ve been focusing on getting the fractal art, and the ideas I have that are associated with it, out to the world this past six months or so.

I ended my presidency of the Artists of Oxford as of the end of December, so I will have a lot more time to paint, and create.  I did take on some other responsibilities (i.e. IWS Canada) but have promised myself they will not interfere with my creative time.  Another goal this year is to actually approach some galleries with my work to see if one of them will allot space to me.  It would free up so much of the time I’m currently spending marketing my art.  Now I’m looking ahead to the new year with many creative thoughts in my head, and anticipating another solo show, this time at the Station Arts centre.  More details on that later!


Christmas Emporium Show and Sale at the Station Arts Centre

So, it seems that every time I help hang a show at the Tillsonburg Station Arts Centre, it has to be snowing and blowing.

It doesn’t look too bad in the photos, but the snow really was piling up quickly yesterday.  We were just glad we weren’t in Buffalo!

Anyway, the five of us who volunteered to hang the show had a good time doing it and I think it turned out pretty well. It opens this Friday.  Here is the info, and a few glimpses of the exhibit.  I’ve got eight pieces in there.

Welcome Back to Otterville

It’s that time of year again!

Today I will be taking down my exhibit at the Ingersoll library, and in the next week I’ll be rearranging my gallery at home so I can show studio tourists the most art possible during Welcome Back to Otterville, November 15 & 16, 10 am to 5 pm.

I have never had this many pieces of art to exhibit in my home gallery, (due to the addition of a great deal of fractal art!) and it’s going to be a challenge – good thing I have high ceilings, and a few extra wall panels!  I still think it won’t all fit, so if you arrive and you don’t see something you thought I had, please let me know – I may have it stored in my studio.

Here is some information about the tour.  (Click for a larger image).  This is available in postcard form at many places around the area, and all of us on the tour will have some.  Look for the yellow flags when you get to town.  This tour will be very do-able in an afternoon, and we’re only an hour from London, an hour from Stratford, an hour from Hamilton, an hour from Kitchener/Waterloo.  In the middle of nowhere and the centre of everything!



(Note this map has one more stop than the one on the printed postcard due to the addition of one more studio on the tour after they went to print)


Also, I have a new sign out front!  Looking forward to everyone’s visit.
