Sophia Arts Fall Show and Sale

This past weekend, I showed my paintings at the Sophia Arts Fall Show, along with 5 other artists: Eden Thompson, Malcolm Glover, Jean-mattis Bourgault, Evelyn Caro, Ken Parry, and Knicki Markolf. It was a blast!

I was getting a little down by the last hour of the second day, when I still hadn’t sold any paintings, and then, BAM! Sold three. Thank you Aaron and Ashley! These ones are on their way (or are making their way) to new homes:

Thank you to everyone who came out and showed their support!

Feature Friday: Eden Thompson

I’m not sure how many works of art one needs to buy to be considered a collector, but I have a feeling that I am an official collector of Eden Thompson’s art!

I first met Eden about almost 5 years ago, and fell in love with his work right away. Eden paints and uses collage and layering techniques to achieve his unique look. Plus, he isn’t afraid of colour, which I obviously adore.

These are some of Eden’s pieces that I own (no, not all..!!), in chronological order.

One of the things I love about Eden (apart from being an all-around awesome guy) is how he is constantly trying new things – new techniques, new images, new styles. He is a total inspiration. He recently started making paper portraits, so I asked him to make one of me.

I love it! (isn’t it great??) Looks like I will be getting the rest of the family done, too!

Check out Eden’s work!
