2019 Art Battle Brantford

It was a blast participating at my second Art Battle in Brantford. After spending some time away from the creative life with our child, I am ready back into it.

The night of Art Battle, a wild card spot opened up and I strongly encouraged my photographer husband, John Steinberg, to put his name in. He was picked and he loved participating! He painted the smiley face. Both of our pieces went to a new home at the end of the night,

A huge congrats to David Wierzbicki for winning Art Battle Brantford! I have seen him paint live several times and he is fantastic!

2018 Community Connections: Learning and Growing Together

This past spring I was honoured to work in Ms. Gregory's and Mrs. Osborn's kindergarten class at Banbury Heights working on a place-based collaborative art piece called "Community Connections: Learning and Growing Together". The result is amazing! The JK and SK were not afraid to try new art techniques, take risks, use different types of media to create this amazing piece for their classroom. A huge thank you to the wonderful teachers for inviting me into their classroom.

2017 Paint with Purpose: Brush Off

I was so excited to participate in another brush off on Friday, November 17, 2017 at the Cambridge Centre for the Arts in support of Hope Story.

It was a wonderful night watching 12 amazing artists create pieces of art with only a moments notice of the theme. I painted in the first round; the theme was water.

2017 Art Battle Brantford

Join me and many other artists on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 6:00 at the Rope Factory for Art Battle Brantford!

What is Art Battle?

It is a live painting competition where artists get 20 minutes to created a piece of artwork. The audience votes for their favourite paintings and bid on them in a silent auction.

I have participated in past live painting competitions at the Brush Off in Cambridge and Kitchener where I have 30 minutes to create a painting.

This is my first Art Battle and there is only 20 minutes to making something beautiful on a canvas!
