Purchase Your Raffle Tickets Here For Your Chance To Own This Painting – Fill out this form and I will send you a PayPal invoice to pay by debit or credit card.

Let me tell you a little about the woman who inspired this painting:  My Grandma.

My Grandma is and always will be one of the most important women in my life – someone to be admired and respected. She is strong, smart and funnier than most comedians. She is a WWII veteran of the British Army. She raised 5 wild and crazy kids (including my Dad) as a young widow. She is the sweetest and most loving Grandma that I could have ever wished for.

My Grandma also has Alzheimer’s.

I don’t remember when the symptoms first started,  but over the years her condition worsened and it became more and more difficult to hold a conversation. She now lives in a long term care facility because it’s not safe for her to be alone. When I go to visit her she often doesn’t recognize me and sometimes confuses me with one of my aunts. My Grandma never remembers my daughters, but every time she sees them she falls in love with them as if for the very first time.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that interferes with memory, thinking and behaviour. Symptoms can become severe and often interfere with daily tasks. Currently, there is no cure.

*****

I am honoured to be the Featured Artist for the 2014 Hearts and Art for Alzheimer’s Annual Charity Art Auction and Fundraiser Gala.

I created this painting specifically for this event and I have dedicated it to my Grandmother, Patricia. The title, “In This Moment” represents the wide spectrum of emotions and experiences of caring for a loved one suffering with Alzheimer’s. “In This Moment” captures the time we have in the present with our loved ones – which is the only moment that matters because with someone with Alzheimer’s memories are fleeting.

By donating this painting, I hope to raise a TON of money for the Alzheimer’s Society, so in turn, they can do what they do best and help those affected by this terrible disease. With every $20 donation to the Hearts and Art for Alzheimer’s 2014 Fundraiser you will receive a raffle ticket and the chance to own this original painting.

Raffle tickets are $20 and available for purchase by filling out the form at the TOP OF THIS PAGE.

About Alzheimer’s disease:

Today, 747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, with this number expected to increase to 1.4 million in less than 20 years. Although Canada’s aging demographic will continue to fuel these numbers, increasingly people in their 40s and 50s are also being affected. Growing evidence also shows that brain changes resulting in dementia can begin 25 years before symptoms appear. About the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories The Alzheimer Society of Alberta & NWT is working to change the face of dementia in Alberta and improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The Society educates supports and advocates for those with dementia and their care partners and promotes research into effective treatments and finding a cure for this debilitating disease. Until a cure is found, we are here to help.

Back In My Art Studio: A Fresh New Perspective and My First Completed Painting of 2014

I opened my painting studio for the first time yesterday, after being away from it for almost 2 months while traveling with my family through Chile, South America. I can’t tell you how exciting and invigorating it was to be back after what seemed like forever.

There is something about traveling – being away from everything that you know and which makes you feel comfortable and secure – that wakes you up and opens your eyes to the greater picture of what the world has to offer. My favourite thing about traveling is the perspective that I gain, not only from the new places I’m seeing and people I’m meeting, but also the ability to compare and reflect on my own life.

I can’t think of anything else that makes me feel so alive and passionate than traveling the world. I definitely had bittersweet feelings about coming home but the moment I stepped through the door of my studio I felt right at home.

Work In Progress – Colourful Aspen Birch Tree Painting On Canvas

When I left this painting back at the beginning of December, I felt that it was close to being finished. I had planned to add a few more brights on the upper right and more colour and texture to the foreground but that was pretty much it.

Of course when I came back feeling so fresh and alive, I started painting with a new vision. I started adding these bright greens and vivid colours that reminded me of my time in South America.
