Distinguished Artist for the 39th Annual La Cloche Art Show

What a pleasure and honour to be the featured artist.  The very first juried art show I entered was the 22nd Annual La Cloche Art Show back in 1999.  Being a part of that show and having my work on the same walls as well know and lesser known artists of the area was such a thrill and it changed my life.  I was in awe and felt a connection with these other artists as we were all sharing the same space with the same purpose: to share our unique artistic visions.  I also felt a very strong aspiration to learn and grow and develop so that one day I might be the features artist.
