In the summer of 2014 I was approached by Ben Navaee Gallery about doing a Solo Show and I was over-the-moon ecstatic! I spent the next 7 months planning and preparing a whole new body of work entitled "True Beauty". I also decided to included some of my other beauty inspired pieces to complete the show. It ran from January 30th to February 12th 2015; having been extended an extra week before the show even began. Seeing all of my work fill a gallery (and in Toronto, no less!) and host an awesome opening night was a dream come true. I will never forget this amazing experience. :)

The front of the gallery, my "Restless In Wonderment" bamboo board painting,
and my "Seeing Into The Soul" eye painting series.
On Saturday February 7th 2015 I did a little Live Painting session at Ben Navaee Gallery
Myself with my current WIP! A new Indian Bride in shades of gold.
It will have sparkling acrylic gems adhered to it when it's complete.
The LAST day of my first exhibition!
The front table and my artwork "Coloured Inspired Beauty" which hopes to capture
the beauty of Christina Hendricks.
I had to take another picture of my Christina Hendricks artwork "Colour Inspired Beauty"
because I thought those who aren't from Toronto might like to see the TTC
Streetcar. Growing up in Sudbury you don't experience these! Haha
"Restless In Wonderment"
"Seeing Into The Soul"
My centerpiece of the "True Beauty" series featuring the beautiful Delena Providence who grew up in my neighbourhood as a child and has always inspired me. This piece was admired by many.
Ben Navaee Gallery! It was swell! So long!
