Host of Canada’s CBC TV – THE NATURE OF THINGS

I am exceptionally pleased to announce that I have recently received a personal letter from Dr. David Suzuki. Well-known to audiences around the world since 1979 as host of Canada’s CBC TV long running series – The Nature of Things, as well as his many television specials throughout the decades. I am tremendously honoured to have received his personal letter.

Dr. Suzuki, geneticist, environmental activist and broadcaster, is widely recognized as a world leader in sustainable ecology and for having received numerous awards for his work including a UNESCO prize for science and a United Nations Environment Program medal. Dr. Suzuki has also written or co-written more than fifty books, including many children’s books.

To receive a personal acknowledgement and thank you from Dr. Suzuki for being a part of the movement to find a different relationship with Nature – this truly strengthens my commitment to my cause. Through my art, the Darkness Series – and with my love for All Things Nature, I will continue striving to bring awareness to these issues while shining light on the ‘darkness’ regarding the plight of our beautiful Canadian Endangered Species and Species at Risk.

**TV Interview: THN ~ Gardening For Wildlife**

CABLE 14 TV – THE HAMILTON NETWORK

I am pleased to have recently completed another television interview. This time the topic was regarding the importance of gardening for wildlife, in particular our pollinators and at-risk species. I am again grateful to Cable 14, the THN producers, host, crew and staff for providing me with another opportunity to bring attention to this most critical issue. It is my friendly reminder to everyone to consider ways that we all can help those important and fragile species that intersect with our residential neighbourhoods and built-up areas.

This episode was filmed on-location. I would like to thank my dear friend for ‘loaning’ her beautiful little front yard for this special shoot.

Created in conjunction with my latest project from the Artscapes Endangered Species Series: ‘Within The Darkened Forest’

Summer 2022 Musings…

Summer has arrived and with that comes sunshine, warm weather and the joy of Nature watching. Whether you catch a glimpse of our iconic Canada Geese, or you happen upon a rare species, the beauty of the season always surrounds us.

However you spend your days, be it a shoreline stroll at your favourite lake or a trek through the countryside, take time to enjoy all that the glorious outdoors have to offer.

As this new season brings splendour around every corner ~ appreciate the bounty that Mother Nature so graciously brings forth…

Spring 2022 Musings…

As Winter releases us from its frigid grip and the sun shines just a little warmer, it is time to take a deep breath and revel in the freshness of the new season and what Mother Nature brings us in the great outdoors.

Flora and fauna come alive at this time. We watch with renewed anticipation, the return of our summer songbirds as they embark on their seasonal mating rituals.

As new Spring buds unfurl in all their glory ~ let us all rejoice in this new season…

Winter 2021/22 Musings…

While the brilliant colours of Autumn may have quietly slipped away, the dazzling
beauty of Winter now descends around us, creating the sparkle of icy diamonds on
everything that is touched by Mother Nature.

Vast swaths of land are adorned with a blanket of pristine white snow. Ice clings to
barren branches as it glistens in the sun and shining as brightly as a star lit night sky.

Autumn 2021 Musings…

As the summer season transitions into Autumn, we cannot help but marvel as we
witness Mother Nature transform the landscape into a cornucopia of vibrant colours.

Many creatures great and small begin a monumental journey as temperatures dip
and their instincts draw them to their winter destination.

It is the perfect time to pause. To breathe deeply. To inhale the intoxicating scents of
a forest in change. To reflect on the beauty of the new season. To simply just – be.

Summer 2021 Musings…

There is something to be said about the little things that bring joy to every individual.

Whether it is catching the early morning sunrise; seeing the smile on a loved one’s
face or watching a pretty song bird flit past your window – there is beauty in life’s
most simple moments.

Capturing those moments in any permanent form will keep the memory alive for years
to come. Take time to consider how each moment of wonder can be captured in your
heart forever. May the Beauty of Life shine all around you…
