"This joint exhibition between Art Windsor-Essex & Museum Windsor includes a brief timeline of local 2SLGBTQ+ milestones. This timeline represents only a small sampling of Windsor’s 2SLGBTQ+ history. Unfortunately, much of that history has been erased or lost."
I got together with teacher and historian Walter Cassidy to put together this exhibition to represent this local history, both through Walter's articles, research, and artifacts, and through four paintings I created to represent some of the stories with missing pieces (and to celebrate current community members.)
Please visit the AWE (formerly the AGW) in Windsor, Ontario (Canada) to see the display.
Two of my oil paintings were recently included in the group show "Mujer", curated by the fine art collector, Canadian physicist Dr. Samuel Peralta. It featured artworks of women, inspired by International Women's Day, and was posted online on ARTSY through 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago (catalog link is to the left) in conjunction with PoetsArtists March 1, 2022. This exhibition catalog will also be included in Dr. Peralta's Lunar Codex Project, which will be sending several digital payloads in a time capsule to the moon on Elon Musk's rocket for SpaceX.
You can view all artworks in the show individually here, plus a link to the Lunar Codex website:
One of my oil paintings was recently included in the group show "Music/Man", curated by the incredible fine artist Allesandro Tomassetti. It featured artworks of men, inspired by music or lyrics, and was posted online on ARTSY through 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago (catalog link is to the left) in conjunction with PoetsArtists March 15, 2021. I was so excited to read about this call that my brain started swimming with possibilities immediately. I was honored that my work exhibited amongst such incredible pieces.

My solo exhibition Queen For A Day at SHO Art, Spirit & Performance was a success! We still saw over 100 visitors to the exhibition despite all the tight Covid restrictions, and the show was very well-received. I'm very grateful for the grant I was awarded by the ACHF from the City of Windsor, which helped make this show possible.
