This levity-filled piece, “Kung Fu Doodle” (an 8×8″ archival pigment print framed to 17×21″, edition 1 of 10), was delivered to the John B.

Everyone is invited to come meet the artists and the artwork at the opening reception on Thursday, April 7th, from 6 – 8pm at the gallery at 900 Bay Street on the ground level.
I have several pieces in New York City at the Affordable Art Fair, as one of Abbozzo Gallery’s artists. The AAF is on from September 9 to 13, 2015 at the Metropolitan Pavilion.
This is a photo of Abbozzo Gallery‘s booth at the fair. A nicely planned colour palette. My photograph, “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1” can be seen in the centre of the booth.
I was truly honoured to be the recipient of the Award for Best Work by an Emerging Artist at the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) Members’ Exhibition of Selected Works yesterday at the Papermill Gallery at Todmorden Mills, Toronto. The piece selected for the show is “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1”, which, I am pleased to say, was sold at the opening reception. It was a pleasure to meet and learn about many of the other artists at the show and view their amazing artworks.
My deepest thanks to John Ashbourne, member of the OSA, for sponsoring me in to the show.
