A collection of 8 of my paintings will be on display as part of a show at Gallery 5 on the fifth floor of the Ministry of Health building here on Blanshard Street in Victoria, BC.
This show is not accessible to the public, but if you are working in health care there is a good chance you might be on the way to or from a meeting on this floor.
My work will be there until October this year.
No artist can hope to claim universal appeal, but it gives me great satisfaction when I see someone connect with one of my paintings, and I see their shoulders loosen, just a little, for a while; perhaps even just a second or two.
During this time, it’s nice to know my work will be there for the people who are working hard to pull us through this pandemic. I’d like to think that at some point, in some small way, someone who is working long hours under tough circumstances might get a moment of relief from the stress of this moment through the experience of my work.
