Many of you have seen her work in the#femaleeye#feff posters this year .. But what you don't know is this sweet woman painted me while I was healing and gifted me this beautiful art piece!! I opened it today and cried. She even put #archangelmichael around my neck and gave me my crown of #dandelions and of course the Sunflowers that represent a bunch of amazingly cool light working alpha women that I have in my inner circle
I love you girl.. thank you. @femaleeye Leslie Ann.. look what this actra girl got (the napkin and phone strap is in frame on purpose - to protect the artist) #sograteful#rebelspirit#canadianartist#canadianart#wendlebeaton#gratitudes#loveisthehealer#cancerfree
This is an old piece of mine that hangs in our living room. The gouges are deep and I used industrial staples to create a mass in the upper portion of the house. Steel stitches weave around the perimeter. I like the composition and energy that this pieces has.
A couple of little ones on my very messy table today. I'm getting ready for an art fair that's coming up fast and the artists attending are expected to paint live... I'm kind of dreading it because I'm such a messy painter! After a couple of hours, I've smeared paint on my face & in my hair, I've wiped my hands on my butt a few times, the stuff is splashed on every surface within a couple of feet and half my paint tubes are on the floor. Not sure how that's going to go over!!!
Still sick but I had only today (in the upcoming days) to see #georgiaokeeffe @agotoronto before the exhibit is gone. So I slapped on some💄 💋 to avoid looking like death warmed over, OD'd on ginger and away I went!
While I was suitably moved to see the works of Georgia O'Keefe, I was blown away by the works curated in "Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood. This multimedia exhibit of emerging and established artists explores where Canada has been and where it's going through the various narratives of the people within her borders. "Canada is a dynamic work in progress"
Very inspiring. Worth getting out of sweats for 🙌🏽👊🏽 #ago#artgalleryofontario#canadianart#everynowthenago#georgiaokeeffe#mutlimediaart#art

There is something bigger than fact: the underlying spirit, all it stands for, the mood, the vastness, the wildness. - Emily Carr
I've been asked if my paintings mean anything or if they're supposed to look like something--a vase, a chair, people on a beach. I don't think about abstract as symbolic, whether of an object or a feeling, though I don't create in a vacuum and if my thoughts are obsessing about something it will find its way into my work, regardless of the medium. Neither do I intend for set readings into my work, i.e. that I paint hidden furniture or faces.
I like the openness that abstract encourages, that one person might see joy where another sees the outlines of their hometown. For me, each interpretation adds a layer of meaning that enriches the piece beyond my original intention. If I see anything, its usually topographic: surface textures, alluvium, rivers and plateaus. Abstract paintings to me are not just a result of formal characteristics of line and colour. They are alive and evolving, responding to me as much as I respond to them.
If you would like to buy my paintings, please contact me to book an appointment at my studio. I'll make tea and we can chat art and choose the perfect piece (or pieces) for your home or office. I love hosting guests as we can take our time discussing the art and life, and my 1914 character home is warm and welcoming. I am also happy to ship my paintings, carefully and beautifully packaged, to any location worldwide.
