I would have to say that the most precious connections I have made here in Barrie, Ontario are with Awkward Stage and Le Petit Chapeau. Both Alana Sproule and Meaghan Armstrong have been both supportive and inspirational as I begin my journey as an artist. Beyond being my studio neighbours, we are working hard as the Lakeshore collaborative to bring programming to the mews during culture days and deliver workshops throughout the year. I definately could not have done what I have without these two special ladies.
Matthews Hall Independent School
Matthews Hall is a wonderful private school located in London, Ontario, where I worked as the Arts Specialist and grade 6 language teacher for three years. Beyond my teaching, coaching and mentoring duties, I also anually participate in their Holly and Ivy Show and Sale which serves as an excellent fundraiser to the school while supporting local artists and artisans in their work. Check out the sale this year the first weekend in November to get some early Christmas shopping done.
