1st painting on Cortes Island

I have been an artist all my life.When we moved to Cortes Island I decided I would take this opportunity to  follow my heart.In the past I concentrated on hair,makeup and fashion and using that as my canvas,medium making people feel good about them selves.In the late 1990’s I took up some nite courses at Emily Carr trying my hand with different brushes.By 2010 i started focusing 100% on this style of art.

This weekend I decided to have an extra bit of courage and share my first 2 paintings I did with no guidance or pictures,just me ,2 canvas and new brushes.My first painting done on Cortes Island is mixed media(which I had not realized was my thing at the time)is called This Way To Weed Town. My husband was and still is so supportive he made me a frame for it well I was on tour with my band The Abbie Hoffman Society and today I paint almost daily,have had 8 shows and 3 series.Tomorrow I’ll share the second painting I did which actually appeared in an art show.
