Win Free Tickets to the Edmonton Home and Garden Show

The Edmonton Home and Garden Show kicked off yesterday and what a fun event! I painted live and had passers-by peering over my shoulders watching the painting progress. I’m in an area called The M(art)ket with other creative folks; painters, photographers and crafters. My booth numbers are 1373 and 1474 in hall B.

Come visit me and find some art for your space!

The theme of the home show is: Real Advice, Real Inspiration, Real Experts. In that line of thought, please comment below on what inspires you. For me as an artist, I find inspiration in nature, in its colours, textures and movement.
