Join us at the following places & events…

Hello students, customers & friends,

Due to the sudden passing of our daughter Tammy, I will not be teaching any classes until we have Open House in February 2018. I am unable at this time to concentrate on patterns & designing.

However I will be puttering in the studio from now until Christmas so if you need paints, brushes or any supplies please feel free to drop in or phone in your order.

There will not be a Dragonfly meeting until the new year but if you have any items to offer for the Battered Women’s Christmas packages please drop them off.

We will be at the Abbotsford Tradex Christmas show November 17th,18th & 19th as scheduled.

Thank you to everyone for the cards & phone calls we have received at this difficult time.

Somedays are better than others but John & I are slowly doing better.

Thank you for your kindness,



Between classes in the studio you can find us at the following events during the 2017 year:


November 17th thru 19th – West Coast Christmas Show at the Tradex in the Abbotsford Airport.  




This two day workshop is a must for the beginner painter to understand the acrylic paint & how to use it.

It is  also a great way for someone who hasn’t painted for a while to refresh the knowledge that’s been tucked away.

Brush control is everything & we will cover the use of various brushes & the stroke works that make
up our paintings.

We will build a binder with our hands on techniques on Saturday & on Sunday we will use that learned, refreshed information to paint a picture.

The student will go home Sunday with an informational binder & a completed canvas painting.

Date:  Saturday & Sunday March 25th & 26th, 2017
Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm both days.
Cost: $ 95.00

Supplies: teacher will supply binder, surface & paints.

Student to bring brushes if they have them however, there will be loner brushes if needed.
