Exhibit Alert! Published in a book.

'Something Different' Big Art Book
32nd Annual Juried Exhibition

2016 meet 2017.

This time last year I was published in a book. If you followed my work over the last year you may recall 'Heartbeats in the Amazon' was accepted. The Big Art Book is a juried, competitive exhibition and publication for visual and literary artists across Toronto to submit their work that demonstrates ' Something Different'.

Last year the theme was 'Spectacular Celebrations' celebrating Canada's 150th.  2016's Big Art Book (below)

100s of submissions were sent for 2017.
I have been accepted in the Big Art Book, again!

3 of 3 submissions: Accepted!

Last year, only 1 of 3 submissions was accepted into the book. This year, I will be proud to say not 1, not 2, but 3 paintings will be published! And another on showcase in the juried exhibition. This is definitely the highlight of the year for me. (This year has been one heck of a ride).

As one of my most competitive exhibits I am involved in, this exhibit is special to me. To have my work published in a book...forever is really gratifying.  I hope to create my own book down the line with some of my favourite paintings accompanied by beautiful poetry.

Speaking of poetry...keep reading...
