I am so excited to be part of this again this year! In a “celebration of the arts in all its forms …,” jazz, classical, folk, and world music set the stage for curated fine art exhibits and artisan vendors, and a variety of arts activities for families with young children. Two stages this year, and more performers and artists than their first two years. Look for me during daylight hours on the way to the Gallery Stage in the Franklin Street Artisan Vendor Zone. Or nearby the stages thereafter. Licensed event. Artisan Vendors

From my "past life": I was honoured to be on the steering committee of this conference from 2005 to 2010. This year, their theme is Succession: Nature of Change - a perfect opportunity to share my own change, from science-focused work with the federal government to becoming an artist ... the constant: my love of nature and environmental protection/restoration, and wanting to make a difference in some way — with art, perhaps fostering nostalgia and ongoing care for our natural spaces. My current plan is also to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of my nature originals and reprodutions to the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System efforts.
