I have a group of painter friends. We have painted together over many years, not always together and not always in the same location, but we think of ourselves as a group...sisters, so to speak.
The five sisters will be showing together for the first time, with the focus being on places we've been and the inspiration that comes from being together. Our adventures have brought us to places like Killarney, Algonquin, Georgian Bay, Muskoka and more. Please join us at the Double Door Studios & Gallery during the month of May.
Meet the "Sisters" on Friday night, May 3.

In And Around The City
This exhibition is a celebration of local landscape inside and around the city. When I moved to Barrie a few years ago, I was amazed by the diversity of landscape right here within the city. There are woodlands, wetlands and waterfront parks, lively marina and street activity, historic and new buildings existing side by side. And then just outside and at the edge of the city I find rolling farmland, forests, trails and wide open vistas that look all the way to the escarpment. Through my work as a painter, I aim to record and share these moments of discovery and perhaps the excitement of living in such a diverse place as the City of Barrie.
