My time in the commercial art world has primarily been spent at Bau-Xi Gallery, one of Canada's most established contemporary fine art galleries. It has been a time of incredible learning and personal growth. Since joining Bau-Xi in 2005, I have facilitated representation for emerging and established artists while developing strong relationships with patrons and art industry professionals. My projects for Bau-Xi included identifying market trends and recruiting talented artists, advising collectors on acquisitions, coordinating year-round exhibitions, and building artist profiles in international markets at fairs in Toronto, Miami, and London. This is, I believe, the most important portion of my working life.
The feeling builds over time, seeming like almost forever, but then suddenly the time arrives. It is time to leave the city and return back to my roots in eastern Ontario, answering the call of the relaxed St. Lawrence River lifestyle. Even more important, the piles of friendly family members who double as willing babysitters.
The Still Life is my plan. Enjoying life to the fullest, taking time to look around, getting re-acquainted with nature, horses and family. I will use this space to discuss our family journey (in our 75 acre forest) while sharing the ever-inspiring stories of the artists I work with. This is the next chapter.
