Stop by for some Amazing Animal Face Painting or enjoy receiving a World Animal Day Caricature to take home and enjoy. For a change of pace, “Get Closer” with animal encounters and educational talks, or join in the Musical Enrichment Parade to present a stimulating treat or surprise to some of the animals that call the Edmonton Valley Zoo home.
After all of this excitement, take a break and enjoy making a World Animal Day Craft or enjoy your very own World Animal Day Cupcake (while supplies last!).

What a joy it was to draw at the Edmonton UHaul Employee Health Fair.
Some days I have to pinch myself that I get to do caricatures and chat with people for a living.
Here are a few examples of the fun I had ....
"where there's a will, there's a way!"

A mural done for the Indoor Play Area at City of Edmonton's Terwilleger Recreation Centre.
( 2051 Leger Road, Edmonton, AB T6R 0R9 (780) 442-5311)
The Indoor Play Area has a stage that had blank walls. Our hope is by adding these characters that are performing and play acting, that it will give the kids the idea to do the same!
You can only see part of the mural from the hallway windows which is a bit of a shame. My personal favourites are the little boy on the moon and "Canadian Girl"!
Of course the characters and mural layout was designed by me as well as the painting of it.

Canada Day at the Muttart Conservatory
Time: 11am – 5pm Enjoy lively jazz with Six Feet Up, Canada crafts, planting activities, face painting and lots of family fun. Search the pyramids to find plants native to our home and native land and test your knowledge of Canadiana. Be sure to check out annual sculpture show! Visit http://www.muttartconservatory.ca for more information.
Caricatures were a hit - something more to do than just dance and look at each other in fancy clothes!

I thoroughly enjoyed using a palette knife for a lot of it.
Acrylic painting on canvas 2.5’X3’.
The colours in the painting were chosen by my client. Another nice advantage to commission me to do a painting. I'd love to create a painting for you too...

As an Edmonton artist I get to meet a lot of interesting people, most are out at an event enjoying the brighter side of life. I often get to go to parties, weddings, special events and community outings to draw caricatures or do face painting. Companies, organizations and sports teams contact me to design graphics and logos. Others have me add cartoons to their advertisements. I have done many paintings, whether it be murals or on canvas. These commissioned paintings are perfect for home or office. Businesses also contact me to design signs, or do window painting.
I like what I do and feel lucky that I get to see people who get to look at bright side of life
