Martin Place. Artist. Mentor.

My dear friend, Martin Place, is my mentor and always offers the most wonderful advice and guidance.  I met up with him today at his annual art sale!

Martin has three main art mediums (and multiple others!):




Catch Day 2 of Martin’s annual Xmas sale tomorrow!



I worked with Martin’s daughter, Sara Place, at Keith Lynn Alternative Secondary School and I was lucky enough to accompany students, support staff and Sara to Martin’s art retreat on Savary Island three years in a row.  Glorious memories!
