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.
When a programmer nicknamed “The Wise Guy”, met an artist simply known as “C”, through a series of incredibly serendipitous events, something had to happen. It didn’t take long for them to realize that by combining their extensive programming and design skills they could create a unique, powerful, and yet easy to use web tool for artists. Their brain child, C4Wise Communications, is a company that specializes in producing websites specifically designed for artists.
Beyond Stephen Tulloch being a wonderful friend and artist that I met while running Axis Studios, Stephen and his team are my reliable web gurus. A big thank you to them for making me their feature artist during April 2011.
