Exhibition Announcement - Save the date:



Just wanted to announce that my Eerie Dearies show and book signing has been scheduled !


Link to Facebook event:

This December 2013 you are invited to attend an art exhibition of the original paintings that I created to illustrate my book Eerie Dearies!
I will also be signing books and have books and prints available at the event for purchase while supplies last.

Opening:   Fri. Dec. 6th 2013     6pm to 9pm

Location:   grunt gallery #116 – 350 East 2nd Ave

Duration:   Fri. Dec. 6th to Sat. Dec. 14

Gallery hours: Tues to Sat: Noon to 5pm

******Original art purchases may be picked up after Sat.Dec. 14th the last day of the exhibition.

This exhibition is a short pre-christmas show and a great opportunity to pick up an original painting or a book which would make a lovely gift. If there is a particular painting you are interested in please let me know and a deposit can secure your purchase. A few early purchases have already been made so not all of the paintings are available. Those lucky ducks!

Opening night is Friday December 6th from 6-9pm so come see all 26 illustrations together for the last time. Also, I will be handing out a few free prints for best school girls costumes. I did this at my Catholic School Girls show a few years back and - WOW! There were some great costumes and it was a very fun night. Fellas-if you don't feel like dressing as a school girl you could dress as a school boy !

EERIE DEARIES is an unusual book that offers a carefully crafted & alphabetized selection of twenty-six beautifully illustrated excuses for being absent from school. Faded and well-used book covers serve as compelling backgrounds to each of these delicately rendered acrylic paintings, creating an atmosphere akin to an old and dusty collection of darkly humourous myths.

“From one who forged her way through high school with endless notes from home excusing her from Guidance, these are the best creative excuses I’ve ever seen. Chaperon’s absent girls have nothing but presence. They are mighty.”

      - Susan Musgrave (author of Given, a novel)

This bizarre and astonishing ABC book contains 26 illustrations of absent school girls in ephemeral landscapes. These intriguing figures are at once pale and wan and amusingly dramatic. The perfect peculiar ABC!

My book is scheduled for a fall release (September/October) and I will be creating a special limited edition which will be available in my store:

Original paintings are available for sale, please contact me for prices and to find out which pieces are still available,
