I was pleased to share the final selections from the Distillation Process with you all last week here and across social media. Thank you for your support and excitement over my latest body of work. It means so much to me, I am quite excited about releasing this series in limited edition prints. 

I visited with the brilliant designer, printer, and now shopkeeper, Jenni Douglas yesterday as we made our final decisions on the best paper for the reproductions. Jenni showed me an artist proof of one of my favourite pieces from the series and I was delighted with the quality and richness of the print. The colour and detail are superb and the finish of the archival cotton matte paper is perfect. I happily gave her the go ahead to print the other pieces on this same paper and I should be able to release them into the world next week.

Until then, I have a few details from my artist proof of the piece, My armor, my solace, my connection, to share with you today. At A3 size (42x29.7cm/11.7x16.5") these prints are a beautiful and strong presence.

Wonderful detail and richness


A good size, I can't wait to have my proof framed

A moment of sun hits the print, illuminating the details

Rich in colour and texture with a border for easy framing

Have a look back at last week's post to see the complete series and start thinking about which piece or pieces might be right for your collection. Until next week, keep fighting. The world needs you.

Selections from the distillation

I am excited to share my latest series of paintings with you all. Out of the 180 pieces from January's distillation process, I have selected these 19 works on paper to represent the completed series. The following selections will be available soon as a series of signed, limited edition prints. I am currently finalizing the reproduction details and will let you know more about their availability soon. Until then, I hope you will enjoy my latest work.

We can't be what we can't see



Every now and then I am asked for a photo of myself working in my studio for an interview or article. I am always honored to be interviewed but the studio photo always causes a bit of trepidation because:

A. I don't have a current studio photo.
B. I want the work to speak for itself.
C. Fear of being judged.



I am pleased to report we finally tackled the issue, thanks to Stewart Bremner and his photography skills. We now have a selection of "me in my studio" photos to choose from, the next time this delightful dilemma comes up.

We can't be what we can't see and how many photographs of women do you see in their art studios? So fight the fear, fight the power, and be seen.

Mentors


Listening to these women gives me hope and that's all I have for you this week.
