I Can't Believe it's not Butter

April 14th, 2011 will be an evening I will ALWAYS remember. Our grad show was amazingly amazing and was filled with so much talent, I may go blind.  Our months and months of slaving away through paint,  digital dilemmas, deadlines and what not, paid off! I am so proud of my class, I still get teary eyed when I think about it.  The evening was filled with mixing and mingling, wine and catered food, great art....and surprise awards. I was completely honoured and flabbergasted to receive the Narrative for a Book award which was judged by a slew of well known publishing companies such as Penguin, Annick Press, Kids Can Press etc. AND was floored when I got to accept my award from Brenda Clark, Who has illustrated a ton of children's books, including Franklin. I later had a short but wonderful conversation with her and  received very positive feedback and assurance that "I'll do fine. *(wink & warm smile)"

To add to the ambiance of the night, I wore my coveted, Illustrative NeNeee dress and received many compliments on my quirky dress. ( still in love!)


  1. Congratulations! It's great to get feedback from the pros! Love the dress.

  2. Love your art in your etsy shop. Good luck!
