One of my paintings was included in an exhibition at a Celebration of Canadian Whiskies held at the Canadian Consulate in New York. It was a wonderful evening of art, whiskey tasting, and drinks mixed by Jim Meehan, a New York mixologist from Death & Co. The art exhibition was comprised of work by New York Academy of Art alumni.

I am so incredibly excited and grateful to have received another ELIZABETH GREENSHIELDS FOUNDATION GRANT!!!! I admire this foundation so much for their ongoing international support of representational figurative artists and it means so much to me to have their support. I have received funding to remain in New York for another year, as I develop a body of paintings for an upcoming show here (which I will give you more details about in the future). I am so excited. Best Day Everrr!!
