Member of the Ontario Society of Artists {Canadian Artist}

I received a very exciting letter this morning saying that I have been elected as a member of the Ontario Society of Artists, Canada’s oldest running artist society. Founded in 1872, OSA has been instrumental in establishing many major Canadian art institutions, including the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Ontario College of Art. For me become a member of that organization is an honour beyond words. I feel very small and filled with wonder to be in a group of Canada’s best-known painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers, in our time and in the past.

Recipient of the Award for Best Work by an Emerging Artist {Ontario Artist}

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.
