2015-12 Hey!!! That's ME!

This past week I delivered a first round of finished artwork to a local gallery. It's been awhile since I've had any kind of gallery representation so everything about it feels new to me.

Here's stacks of completed images following signing and packaging.

The entire process has rekindled my love of works on paper, as well as sparked a change in direction of sorts for personal projects. 

Seeing my work printed, made real, signed and editioned, putting together the presentation I felt was right for me... all of these things were extremely rewarding. A process that reminded me of some of the things I fell in love with about photography over two decades ago. 

My work is represented in Windsor by Nancy Johns Gallery & Framing. They're located at 4755 Wyandotte Street East, just east of Pillette.

Nancy Johns Gallery & Framing specializes in both custom framing as well as carrying Windsor's local artists. It is an honour to be carried by such a wonderful local gallery, but also to be showing my work alongside many other talented artists from this area.

So when I saw the updated artists' list on the website...

...I broke out in a big, giddy smile. It was exciting to see my name in such good company!

So that was Tuesday... 

On Friday, I returned from a day away with my family to a wonderful message that I had sold my first piece! How great is that?!?

I've mentioned before in previous posts how I am trying to live vulnerably and to put myself out there. My artwork is a part of me and knowing that at least one other person is valuing it enough to purchase it brings me great joy! It's never taken for granted.
