In January 2005, I had my very first solo show in The Port Moody Art Cente. This was an amazing opportunity for an aspiring artist. I invited everyone I knew, I was so happy to let the world know that I managed to put together a solo show. Looking back, I remember how eager I was to start my art adventures and I am immensely grateful to the Port Moody Arts Centre that hosted the show, to my hubby for the emotional support, and to the wonderful art lovers who purchased a few of my paintings from that show.

One of those memorable early art collectors was a passionate art-loving woman whom I had met three years earlier in West Vancouver where I was painting en plein air with my art class. She had told me that she would buy my painting if I ever decided to sell it. Three years later, I mailed her a photo of the painting and an invite to the show, and she came. She literally ran into the gallery shouting “Is it sold?” I will never forget her!

You are invited to the anniversary group show featuring paintings by many artists who have shown their art in the Port Moody Arts Centre over 20 years. Let's celebrate the art and this wonderful community organization! All the details can be found on the poster above.
I will have three pieces in the show. I picked a mix of works created over the past few years, I hope you will enjoy seeing them!
See you in Port Moody!
