I was thrilled to receive an Honourable Mention at this year's CanwaxWest Waxing Poetic exhibition in Penticton, BC for my painting Rising Up IV. It is one of my favourites and it was so lovely to know that others liked it too. This exhibition is always an incredible opportunity to see how artists from across Western Canada are working in encaustic. It was extremely varied in style and content. I look forward to next year's showing.
