***UPDATE! We’ve decided to auction off the 40″ x 60″ interactive portraits THE NIGHT of heroes with heART: Katarina Thorsen’s Interactive Portrait Event! Proceeds from these pieces go to Vancouver Friends For Life! About 5 of my smaller portraits will also be auctioned off during the evening, with part of proceeds benefiting Intersections Media as well as Kat’s youth at-risk art therapy program!
My list of subjects in attendance is looking amazing! This will be one hell of a group art therapy session!!!
Here’s a preview of two fantastic people I have the honor of drawing and celebrating for the work they do!

In 2009 she was presented with another “Entertainer of the Year” trophy at the BC Event Industry Awards. She has joyfully donated performances to dozens of charities for more than 20 years, sponsors an orphanage in Cambodia and has painted 40,000 pink and sparkly noses for peace.

“Hi! My name is Jonny Staub, I’m a successful daytime radio DJ in Vancouver, Canada. I’ve also been striving to make a mark online, with content that I hope you find amusing, random and every once and a while informative. You can catch me weekdays, 10am-2pm (PST) on A LOCAL RADIO STATION. I’m not allowed to say which one here for legal purposes (LOL), but if you google “Jonny Staub” it’ll pop up.”
