My First Sale!

I am very happy to announce that I have sold my very first piece of art. Erin Kelly from Pembroke, Ontario has purchased my piece "Mockery". It is a narrative collage which was created with storybook pages on posterboard. The piece portrays a princess that magically beheads all of the princes who come to wed her. It attempts to mock the societal ideal that all women should grow up to be "perfect" women and should find "perfect" men to marry them. It is an unrealistic and poisonous message that our modern cartoons help spread. Thank you for your support Erin!

Opening Night Of The 2010 Nipissing Fine Arts Juried Exhibition At White Water Gallery

I thought it might be nice to post a couple of photos from the opening night of the show.
Hope you enjoy them. :)

Nipissing Juried Exhibition - Malinda Prud'homme and Amanda Burke
This is a photo of my drawing professor, Amanda Burk and I in front of my piece "Window". She was very happy and proud to have an entire wall dedicated to drawings created by her drawing students. She is a lovely person and a fantastic teacher. Though I plan to keep in touch with her, I will miss her greatly.

Nipissing Juried Exhibition - Malinda Prud'homme and Eileen O'Connor
This is a photo of my fundamentals professor, Eileen O'Connor, and I in front of my piece "See". This is the piece that won the "Viewers Choice Award"!

I took this photo with my two amazing painting professors and their beautiful baby daughter. I learned a great deal from both of them and wish them all the best.

Here is a photo with my very supportive parents. Even though I had finished two university degrees they fully supported me in going back to school to pursue my artistic dream. I can't thank them enough for everything they have done for me! I love them very much.

Here is a photo of my partner and I. He has also been extremely supportive and encouraging. He has had such a positive affect on my life and I feel this has had a positive affect on my work.

Lastly, this is a photo of some fellow FAVA (Fine Arts/Visual Arts) ladies! Christine Charette (to my left) also had a piece in the show.
I have met some outstanding people this year while pursuing my artistic path and it really pains me to think that I will be leaving them all soon. I definitely hope we all keep in touch!

This is my second piece to be accepted into the juried show. It is from the series "One And The Same" and is entitled "See". It is one of three pieces in this particular series. I am strongly connected to this series which is why, at this time, it is not for sale.
The other artists and pieces in the show are incredible! It is a lovely show and is worth seeing if you get a chance.
