What I see becomes a sort of visual illumination, like a match struck unexpectedly in the dark, a gift, lighting my path into wonder -Virginia Woolf

Seeing wonder in the backyard

Leave a comment

How great is it to read an article about one’s artwork in the region’s major local media. I want to thank writer, Barbara Aggerholm and photographer, Matthew McCarthy from Grand, Living Well in Waterloo Region for creating this piece and editor, Cathy Storring for supporting “Seeing wonder in the backyard”.

I will be participating in the art fair, Art in the Yard at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Art in the Yard takes place July 5 and 6 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Elora Centre, 75 Mill Street, Elora, ON. 50 artists will be participating.

Come visit us in Elora, see the gorge, have ice cream, see the shoppes and our artworks.
