Faery, faeries, fairy antics?

I have an online store now. I will also be creating a different store later on for hand-crafted items. I am very excited, it's so fun to see my art being useful!

Advika Clothing ....

I decided to create a video slide show portfolio for my friend Jamie Brock for her clothing line.... Since I am realizing I am a bit of a workaholic, it's saturday night and didn't feel like doing anything constructive for me... So I am being constructive for a friend... To see the video, click on the Title...

This was not the final version, but has ended up that way due to program issues when trying to save final edits.... yargh....

Video Portfolio: The Art of April-Anna

I made a video portfolio of my work.
I was actually trying to just make a slide show but the program I have on my computer is for making videos, so it's a slide show in the form of a video. Might make a bit more fine-tuning/edits to the video, but this is it for now...

It's posted on YouTube. Click the title to view it.

Calgary Art Gallery - Papa Wheely

The Papa Wheely show is an ongoing series that will be doing it's 3rd & biggest exhibition (5th if you include the 2 fundraisers) on April 10th at the Calgary Art Gallery.

It's a group show with 50 artists and I am now one of the artists accepted for this show. I will be going in as the "special out of town artist"; there are a few of us out of towners, but the majority of the artists participating are Calgary locals.

I am super stoked!! My work will be in a city gallery!!

New additions to my portfolio...

So I had the chance to go for the weekend to a chalet on a ski hill.
An idea concocked by wonderful, fun, loving, harmonious, peaceful, silly, & mischievous bunch of crazy people I know (my dear and beloved friends). How could I say no? How did I say no? Why did I say no?

Right. I am an artist on a mission...
No rest for the artful.

So this is the results of my weekend not on a ski hill.
