It is all about art...


Welcome to my home page. You will find the latest business information on this page. The page will be updated on a monthly basis.



What's new:


Time just flew by. It has been a while since I was able to update my home page. January was a very exciting month. As some of you may know, I am also a German language instructor. In early January, I wrote a post on Facebook asking for German learners who would be interested in a German conversation group. While I heard from a couple of people interested in the group, I also received a message from a friend telling me that the company she works for was looking for a German language instructor. I took a chance, sent in my resume, and was invited two days later for an interview. A week later I passed the teaching certification. On Monday, January 30, I started work half days. Due to this unexpected turn of events, I will not have as much time for my art, especially because I will continue to work for the City of Ottawa as an art instructor. As a result, I have to cancel any further “Creativity & Me” workshops until the summer.


On February1, members of the Navan Arts Group met at the Shenkman Centre to install some of our artworks in the big glass showcase on the ground level. For some people who have never heard of our group, this is a first glimpse of what we have to offer during or show on April 22-23, 2017 at the Navan Arena.


There is still time to participate in the "Shoe Art" project. Find all the details We will also be taking donations of gently used shoes.


My kids’ courses at François Dupuis are doing well. The students have a lot of imagination. In early February, my Cartooning and Comics mini session that was supposed to run at Notre Dame du Champs Community Centre was moved to Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex. I have the pleasure of teaching four siblings. It is fantastic to see that all of them enjoy drawing.


I am also available to organize painting parties for all kinds of occasions for you, whether it is a birthday party, a wedding shower, a get together with friends. I can either come to your house or I will find a restaurant for the party. If you would like more information, please click here.
