A different and exciting kind of growth has sprouted in my life recently.  I am part of a new
 contemporary artists collective and we have leased gallery space on Oak Bay Avenue!  Now that we
 have the keys, the work has begun to prepare the space for shows.
 Sometimes, you just have to reach for what you want.
The art at Gage Gallery will add colour and life to the community.  Our name 'Gage' means an offering of something valued as a guarantee of good faith.

Blooming Inside and Out

 There are so many flowers blooming now,
 including a few in my studio,
where I've been working on three wet felted pieces
 that I've entered for jurying into the Sooke Fine Arts Show.
I recently found this perfect bowl, made by artist Mary Fox, to hold my new business cards while out at the contemporary clay show 'Fired Up' in Metchosin.
This feels like a time of transformation for me - I am working to get several new ventures off the ground -
but they are in motion.  This was a recent gift I made.
And now I'll return to my studio to see what emerges next from the creative reservoir!
