Enjoyed a beautiful rainy day back in Kitsilano Vancouver last week teaching a private lesson in my studio to two sweet young folks who were visiting from Regina, Saskatchewan and San Jose, CA. Big thanks Tan & Abby who did great considering this was both their first time painting! Sooo much fun! They found me here: http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/van/lss/4944538779.html So grateful to do this!!!

Found this in my inbox yesterday: "My name is Nikky. I am a high school student in Montreal, Quebec. I have recently been assigned a project for art class; contemporary artist research and critique assignment. Since abstract is my favorite type of art I chose to find an artist who composes just that. I stumbled upon your site and it took my breathe away. Your work is so inspiring and amazing. I love the many layers and media you use to perfect the imagine. Mystic Places in your portfolio "Pure Abstraction" has got to be one of my favorites. Yoga girl as well, it is all so perfect. I just wanted to tell you how much I look up you and your work. I need to mimic one of your pieces for the final part of my project, i hope it turns out ok! " Made my day - Thank you Nikky.
