Here’s the video from the 11th battle (last Wednesday). Love the fast-action of all the wonderful people painting and watching people paint! If you can’t make it to the battles, at least you get to see the videos!
So before I tell you about the battle, you have to see this clip! Gorilla House was featured on CTV Calgary. Click here to see Rich Theroux in an interview, and four of the Gorilla House artists getting ready to battle. And Click here to see the Gorilla House battle as filmed by CTV. I […]
It’s been about 15 years since I’ve done any figure drawing, so I’m a bit rusty. Head down to Gorilla House for $10 drop-in sessions on Thursday evenings at 7pm. My friend Denice Brown recently wrote a wonderful post about drawing, and why everyone is able to draw, as long as they practice. I will […]
Here’s the video from last week’s battle! Check out my expression at 5:27. Niiiice. Gorilla House was also featured in the latest edition of Beatroute!
Last week I posted about my first art battle. I had such a great time, that I am even considering skipping dance for the next few weeks just so I can keep doing these battles! I totally love the videos that are being made, too. Here’s the one that I was in – there are […]

My brother likes to say, “Art is like football; you either win, or you lose.” I used to laugh, but now he’s right (well, sort of). This Saturday, I am going to be battling it out with 11 other Calgary artists on Art Battle Day. Art battles are going to be held across Canada, with […]
To start, I will admit it. I suck at blogging. Or rather, I suck at blogging regularly. I am not going to make anymore promises about blogging more, because I can’t seem to keep them. I have been doing other things regularly – meditating, 365project, dancing – these are the things that feed my soul […]
You may have noticed (or maybe not) that I haven’t been blogging much in the last 4 months. We were having our house renovated, and it was, overall, a great experience, but left little time for blogging. Anyway, I now have a real studio, with electricity and everything!! Here are a couple photos from downstairs […]
Last night I chose to dance, rather than go to Gorilla House. It was a wonderful night, but I did miss painting! Painting at Gorilla House is such a different experience that painting in my studio, so I decided to bring a bit of that energy to the studio: I made two paintings in two […]
