New Work at Not My Dog.

 These are some small pieces that I have been working on lately playing with drawing, collage, and my new love of Sharpie paint markers.  

"Roots"

"Lost"

"Shiva"

"Medusa"

 "Siren with Seahorses"

I am showcasing these little darlings, as well as many other varieties of textiles, drawings and collages, currently at one of my favourite Parkdale locals Not My Dog.  Stop by to see them in person, they should be up there throughout May.

Belly Dance and the Big Top!

March 28th was quite a night of the arts for this girl.  My student Belly Dancing Troupe, Banat El Sharq, had a 7pm performance at the U of T Festival of Dance.  (Belly Dance has become one of my absolute favourite things lately - I adore the music, the costumes, the way that your body translates the rhythms and the instruments...)
I knew that The Super Wonder Gallery's Big Top Show was that night too, but I really REALLY liked these costumes:

I'm also eager to perform as much as I can since one of the reasons that I joined the student troupe was to overcome my crippling stage fright.  So, I double booked!  I wizzed home after teaching all day, got my costume and an outfit for later, and off I went to the Dance Performance.

This is my backstage dressing room selfie.

After the show, I hightailed it to 99 Sudbury to visit my girls (and my guy!) at the Big Top Show.
Here are Poppy & Rosy courting an admirer,
