Hello from the Columbia Valley!
With the sale of our Canmore home in 2016 and our move to Invermere, my focus has been on
keeping my gallery and shops happy while running our home as a busy Air BnB.
That combined with working and playing at backcountry ski chalets and lodges summer and winter, tons of mountain biking and just generally enjoying life have seen the past 6 years fly by. Why is it that as we age, time goes quicker?
With the regular Art Fairs and my scheduled Private Show in 2020 cancelled,
Bob and I hunkered down in Invermere, slowed our daily lives down, did yoga,
played outside a lot and made wonderful life decisions.
The biggest one being to move out of the Town of Invermere and onto a small acreage.
We have sold our Invermere home and purchased a small acreage that backs onto the Rockies near
We plan to build our forever home with an eye to the fall of 2022 for completion.
I will have a fully equipped custom framing shop once again AND a dedicated studio!
My intention is to set up our new home as a gallery.
It has been an absolute joy to be able to personally connect with many of the purchasers of my work and I sorely miss it.
Although we are currently in a state of flux, I am able to ship card packs, magnets, ornaments and
matted prints in time for the holiday season.
All of my open prints are matted in standard sizes for convenient framing.
My website is getting an update and my online store up and running.
If you prefer to shop in person, my retailers are listed on my website.
In the meantime, here’s a wee one I completed while up at a backcountry lodge a while back.
