Thank You Fairmont Banff Springs and Mountain Galleries

Thank You to the team at Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont  and  Fairmont Banff Springs for the memorable Art Residency experience. Thank you for the warmth, friendliness and attention and the 'pinch-me-am-I-going-to-wake-up-from-a-dream' setting. Everything was exceptional!!

My painting, "Lift Off" has found a new home in the quiet lounge on the Fairmont Gold floor. Here I am presenting the painting to Liam Ransome, Fairmont Gold Manager.

Banff Art Residency May 30 - June 8, 2016

My Art Residency with The Fairmount Banff Springs and Mountain Galleries has been a whirlwind. Sadly, only one more day left. 

A synopsis: from meeting guests at the hotel and visitors to Banff from all over the world...


to teaching an art lesson to a very keen art student who made her first oil painting in a three hour art lesson...

to having film maker, Brian Taylor, and his wife, Dawn, come to Banff for a couple days to shoot for the documentary he is making about my painted life journey...




to, actually, making some oil paintings...



to playing, a little, in Banff National  Park and eating, a lot, of delicious food at the Banff Springs with my man...


to being so grateful for this life, for love, for the connections made during my time at The Castle in the Rockies and for the paintings yet to be born from this experience and my reintroduction into the mountains via Mountain Galleries.


To be continued...
