Have just finished my portrait of Helen Blackburn, a well known resident of Creemore, who has been researching the local history and has written a monthly article in the local paper fo many years. The project is curated by portrait painter, Sara Sniderhan, and is supported by the Purple Hills Arts and Historical Society and the Curiosity House Book Store. The portraits will be published in a book which will come out in September 2015 and be shown at the Creemore Arts Festival. My portrait is of red clay and has been fired successfully - always a bit of a risk there! The portraits are not to be shown until the publication of the book.
