What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?
"Working on a large scale for me is always exciting. I’d say the most memorable artistic experience I've had, was working on an 18' chandelier painting, for a project here in Toronto. There were so many different challenges involved in this project. I had a very small studio at the time and was only able to work on half of the painting at one time. It was divided into panels. My entire studio was filled with scaffolding and I spent months up there, creating a chandelier that I had never actually seen as a whole. Oh and did I mention that I was nine months pregnant at the time? My daughter was born and I completed the chandelier painting a month later as she looked on. In those moments, dealing with all those challenges, it really did feel like an impossible task. But looking back now, it couldn’t really have been more perfect - the creation of my first child and this incredible painting - both took a long time to make and weren't revealed to me until the very end. It’s quite poetic in a way, and such a fond memory."
