North Simcoe Life Magazine
I was featured as one of the local female artists participating in the upcoming Women’s Day Art Show at the Museum of Art & History in the latest issue of North Simcoe Life magazine. See the article here: www.northsimcoe.life/online_edition/feb2018/mobile/index.html#p=19
There was a nice article in Orillia Matters about me, discussing how how my visual impairment has impacted my art. See the whole article here: www.orilliamatters.com/local-news/a-visual-artist-with-a-visual-impairment-826878
Our Musical Universe show
The University of Toronto Planetarium created a new show geared to people with visual impairments (Our musical universe show for visually impaired). I was fortunate enough to attend a pre-release screening, and to work with the talented Matt Russo, who created it. He asked to use my painting “Myth” that was inspired by the show to use in promotional material. I was also interviewed about the show, and many news outlets have published the article. You can read it on local outlets like Orillia Matters site or Barrie Today as well as a number of national papers. This extraordinary show resonated with me because its use of alternate media to represent the visual world we live in aligns with my use of texture and form to represent how I experience the world.
