Make sure you buy your tickets online soon for The Artist Project, this Thurs-Sun, Feb 20-23. My work will be on display as part of the UNTAPPED Emerging Artist Competition, and there is a ton of spectacular work to see this year. Visit www.theartistproject.com for tickets and more information.
I am very excited to announce that I have been accepted into the Untapped Emerging Artist Competition, at The Artist Project this February 20-23 at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto.
Also, I have just found out that I am the recipient of a grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, awarding me $15,000 to complete my proposed plan of travelling to India and Israel this summer for several weeks to explore different cultures in order to better understand the nature of my work with regards to the body and spirit connection.
I will post when I have more details, but it has been an excellent Christmas this year to say the very least, and while I sit here overwhelmed by the amazing opportunities that have come my way, I would like to remind everyone that persistence is key when it comes to following your dreams. I have applied to countless galleries and grants, but success is not the absence of struggle, or the absence of failure, it is in our ability to brush off each of these failures (without dwelling on them or allowing ourselves to become consumed by the potential for future failures) and look forward into what opportunities may lie ahead.
Merry Christmas to all of you and your families, have a safe and happy holiday season, from my heart to yours.”
