I am really happy to be included for a second time in the juried international exhibition, Stand Out Prints at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis. To view great documentation of the exhibition click here.
I am excited to be showing in London UK at the National Original Print Exhibition hosted by the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers at the Bankside Gallery from Sept - Oct 2016. I really wish I was attending the opening!
My print From the shade of the trees has been included in the international exhibition New Prints 2016/Summer at the International Print Center New York from June 16-Sept 24. The show was curated by contemporary painter and printmaker Dan Walsh.
Very happy to have been mentioned in the press release!
It is great to be exhibiting new works this summer in my home community of Bowen Island, BC. In the Cove: past and present Bowen Island is a joint exhibition with the Bowen Island Museum and Archives running from June 22 - July 17, 2016. The opening reception is Saturday June 25, 7-9pm.
Focusing on themes of collecting, recording and preservation I have created a new body of works on paper portraying the present condition of the Davies Orchard Cottages on Bowen Island. Using photographs from the museum archives as inspiration, my prints simultaneously reflect the past and present by referencing the aesthetic quality of the historic images but using current documentation of the island and new technology to create the works.
I have been selected as a finalist in the Salt Spring National Art Prize. I will be exhibiting my print and bookwork, House sampler, land sampler at Mahon Hall until October 26. The Closing Gala and Awards Night is on Oct 24th - I hope to be there!

Article on the LAPS 21st National, an exhibition I was in:
LOS ANGELES PRINTMAKING SOCIETY 21ST NATIONAL EXHIBITION
OCTOBER 26 – DECEMBER 14, 2013
Opening Reception October 26, 5-9 PM
Art Galleries, California State University, Northridge, CA
The Los Angeles Printmaking Society (LAPS) is pleased to announce the upcoming Los Angeles Printmaking Society 21st National Exhibition. LAPS is a major printmaking organization with over 400 US and Canadian active printmakers, in addition to associate, student, patron and honorary members. Its educational arm, the LAPS Foundation, awards grants to printmaking students, supports the LAPS educational activities and supports the Nationals with cash awards. Based in Los Angeles, with the Board members from that area, it serves its members by organizing exhibitions, educational events, and publishing newsletters, journals and catalogs.
The Los Angeles Printmaking Society 21st National Exhibition, a major printmaking event open to US and Canadian printmakers, the largest West Coast competition, opens at the Art Galleries of California State University Northridge (CSUN). In addition to the 56 prints selected from 1,423 submitted entries by close to 500 competing artists, the juror, Jack Rutberg, selected 7 prints from the invited local presses. The exhibition features many large–scale prints.
Jack Rutberg, an internationally known curator, collector and consultant for more than 30 years, represents a wide range of American and European artists through his gallery in Los Angeles. He is credited with bringing significant artists to broader attention and has published catalogs on the work of Hannelore Baron, Hans Burkhardt, Claire Falkenstein and Patrick Graham. In his National catalog essay he says “I am very pleased with the final group of 56 works chosen for this exhibition. Each of these works evokes my response – wishing that I could see another work by the artist. I think the viewers of this exhibition will feel the same.”
Traditionally, the LAPS honors one artist at its National. The honoree this time is June Wayne, who was the founder and director of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop. Ms. Wayne had been an Honorary Member of LAPS and actively engaged in the printmaking community of Los Angeles.
