Sketchbook snapshot: Culinary New Year celebration



Just as spring has multifaceted and deep-rooted traditions, so does the concept of the New Year. My January 2015 column in the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph focused on one of the better-known celebrations not associated with the Julian/Gregorian calendar we adhere to today.

The Chinese New Year falls between January 21 and February 20. Notably, the 'Chinese' New Year is not exclusively celebrated by Chinese, as it is indeed the Lunar New Year celebrated by a great many cultures.

Artful Giving

While I am a firm believer that anyone - even you! - can learn to sketch well enough to produce artful drawings, I understand that not everyone wants to give their own work as gifts.

Indeed, over the past year, I have received countless queries – from workshop participants and organizers, students, and friends – all with an interest in purchasing my artwork.
So, I’m delighted to share this news with you. This December, for the first time ever, a limited selection of my illustrations and natural history observations are available for purchase! See the following gallery for the images that are available. Only mugs and tote bags have text on them. Fine art prints and greeting cards are image-only.
