DIVERSITY IN SQUARES
Solo exhibit at the beautiful historic Montgomery's Inn.
Join me at the opening reception on Saturday July 13th, 2-4pm in the Briar Room.
Painting is an expressive indulgence, which provides the opportunity to explore an intimate conversation with my inner voice. My work reflects a diversity of interests that capture my attention, influencing the palette and energizing a strong desire to paint. Each brush stroke celebrates the expressive movement that I see around me. Diversity echoes within the city of Toronto, and I’m inspired by a city that is so rich in culture, music, and the people that fill it.

It is the nature of sheep to reflect a charming, humble and simple lifestyle. Yet sheep are quirky and have amazing personality.
Owls carry a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge. Thought of as a mystical creature, not much gets past the beautiful eyes of an owl.
Join Sandra for an Uncorked evening of painting either a sheep or owl on the world’s oldest canvas – Rocks. Each and every rock is unique in shape and colour and will contribute to the character of your rock animal. Exploring your own unique style through colour, shape and rhythm is encouraged. The goal is to have fun and play.

Ancient peoples painted rocks or cave walls to record their histories. Their sorrows and pleasures were represented by the symbols they chose. In Japan there is a tradition of painting rocks and wrapping them with string for good luck. The tied-up rocks are then placed inside or outdoors. Painted rocks can also be created as an expression of hope for new beginnings or as a way to manage energy. Join us for a Moms & Mimosas event, creating your own rock memorial.

A brilliant 72 page book called Art Bites designed as a quirky, eclectic collection of recipes celebrating the many local creative Canadian talents. It is uniquely sized as a wire bound 8” x 8” book with a that fits perfectly on a kitchen counter and easily remain open on the desired spread. Satin paper specifically selected adds a classy touch with an additional practical feature in mind. Realistically some of us can’t resist writing notes on to the recipe pages. Not only is this book stunning, but carries functionality with the heart of a coffee table book. The anecdotes are a short personal glimpse into the artist lives – touching, funny; and an interesting read that add an additional depth into the thought process of an artist.
All sales go to Arts on the Credit, a creative organization that has given to the artistic community for many years. Was my turn to give back and I'm thrilled about it.

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.” – Henry David Thoreau, 1854
Join us for Exhibition Opening & Artist Reception on Saturday, February 11th, 6:30 – 9:00pm.
