acrylicworks 3 book by North Light booksThis edition of AcrylicWorks focuses on the theme of texture! The broad theme allows for an amazing variety of styles and approaches. Explore how each individual artist takes to capturing their three-dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. Each translation is unique and inspiring. From shocking hyper-realism to harmonious abstractions, and everything in between, the visual interest of each artist is expressed beautifully and calls your attention into seeing the beauty within any part of our world. See the world as they see it and allow yourself to fall into their paintings as you try to understand both their technique as well as their conceptual focus. Reading each statement certainly gives each work a new air of significance and character

 North Shore art crawl activity in North Vancouver studio
I have an exciting hands on activity as I will have all the supplies for you to try your hand at doodling on pebbles. I have lots and lots of them, they are heavy so I will be happy if you can make a bunch and take them home!
I am so excited to see my work on the cover and in a featured article of Acrylic Artist, Winter 2016.
Caroline McKee wrote the article and I had the opportunity to talk about techniques, inspiration but also marketing and business.

For a moment…..

That you are a tree, a beautiful, magnificent tree with deep roots and soaring branches.

You live in a forest surrounded by other trees, birds, animals and lush plants.

On the inside, you are layered from a strong core unto your bark. Each year passing by you have grown a layer and became taller, wider and stronger.

If we could see inside that tree, we would be able to tell what those years have been like.

Now, we are inviting you to see those layers, this core, and to listen to them.

What do they have to say? What words of wisdom do they have to share?

Maybe you would you like to tell them something? What do you want to share with your inner tree?

Now write those words, this sentence on the paper we gave you and be ready to share it on the final artwork. You can write in English or any other languages.

Thank you.

Help us spread the word, share with your friends!

The tree is now full, thank you to all our participants. If you want to be updated on our upcoming participative Arts project, please fill out the form here.
