Changing Gears

The Fort Saskatchewan Families’ First Society recently moved into a new home, a newly-renovated former RCMP detachment. There was a lot of work to do to transform the building into a family-friendly space, and a lot of fundraising to make it happen. 

So, after Night of Artists last month I quickly change gears into “mural mode”.

As a tribute to the many (MANY!) donors, I volunteered my time to create a donor tree in the front lobby of their beautiful building. This mural was finally unveiled last week. 


...I still can't believe people let me paint on their walls

It was a privilege to help out a group that does so much for our community and the families within it. It’s a community I am proud to call home. 

Now, it’s time to change gears again. My studio is still a disaster from “last-minute show-prep mode”. Time to clean up and get back down to work. I’ve got some fun new projects ahead.
