The 20th Annual Nanaimo Artwalk takes place on December 1 and 2. Visit me in The White Room (4 Church St.) to view my new work, as well as works in progress. I’ll also have prints and cards of favourite paintings from the last 10 years. I’m currently working on a new oil on board commission, and a series of small mixed media (pyrography and oil on board) entitled, “World on Fire.” These edgy pieces are inspired by past and current events that I find alarming, but that we should remember, never forget, and learn from. The fires of Summer 2018 which signal run away climate change, alongside the pipeline purchase is what started this series for me, but it has expanded in my mind to include, the Holocaust, Indian Residential Schools, and Detention of Migrant Children in the US and Europe. It is my hope that humanity can pull together to seek peaceful, lasting solutions to the myriad crises we are facing as a society.
