half & half show

On Saturday, my first museum show opened at the Japanese Canadian National Museum. I did twelve paintings for the show and Robert Shiozaki constructed a sculptural meditation garden in the centre of the museum space.  The idea I had for the show was that of Japantown Reimagined, an idea of the bustling stores of Powell Street if there had been no internment and the stores were updated for today.

Here are photos of the show, if you would like to see the paintings, there are on my website at:


  1. It was a great opening-I'm very proud of you!

  2. I can't wait to go to your show, it looks very powerful.

  3. Thanks PW, and Marianne, let me know what you think of the show.

  4. oooh i love it!! i really like the green and purple painting and the painting in the last picture with the gold swirls. wish I could be there! looks like a great space- nice and big.

    i also love your dip-dyed cardigan! very chic.
