I celebrate the final outcome but I’m not attached to it while I work.
My faith is in the process.

The making creates the meaning.

Paintings are consciousness manifested.  They are intended to connect us in a way that words or language can’t.  This is why it can feel so magical when you look at paintings and why I’m compelled to paint.

I love to paint with music and much of the time I’m dancing while I work.  It’s pure joy, even during the resistance.

It is imperative that our freedom to express ourselves (as Canadians) never be taken for granted.  So I express freely.

This is a listings of my current & upcoming shows.  It would be fabulous to meet in person.   If you would like to visit or come paint with me, please send me a note.

Marleen Vermeulen and I will be returning to Spain in September, 2017 for an Open Your Art Retreat, if you would like to travel and paint, consider joining us!  We have just a few spots available.

Thank you for exploring,







Outside Your LInes, colouring book by Marlene LowdenIntroducing my NEW colouring book!

Outside Your Lines

Introducing a colouring book that is a little different from the rest.

This one has been designed to help you relax, unwind and perhaps, even colour outside the lines!

libre teaI’m honoured to be part of the Libre Tea family as one of their Libre Leading Lights.  I whole-heartedly believe in their manifesto and my Libre tea glasses travel with me to my studio, my yoga mat, up mountains and to art galleries in distant cities.


Libre (lee-brah)
The state of being free. Letting go, bringing one’s mind and body to a place of rest and free from restraint.

“Everyone who sees your paintings loves them and asks about you!  Just wanted you to know.  And of course they both bring me joy EVERY DAY.  I am looking at Ponder as I write this and it always makes me feels both peaceful and inspired…and also energized somehow. “
