Dear Friends, Family & Followers
On April 6, I’ll be stepping up to defeat mental illness as I have been no stranger to depression and anxiety
I am participating in CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health, a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for the one in five Canadians who experience mental illness in any given year.
I’ll be making art everyday for the next 51 days to bring awareness for mental illness. I will be posting my works on my social media platforms. If you see an art piece you would like to own, please make a donation to my page and I will send it on its way to you!Please visit my fundraising page: http://give.camh.ca/site/TR/OBN/OneBraveNight?px=1155886&pg=personal&fr_id=1101 and sponsor me with a donation of $35, $50, $100 or more. I appreciate whatever you can give – it all adds up to support those living with mental illness!

I’m sooo EXCITED to be apart of |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week 2015 Celebrating it’s 10th Year Anniversary! I owe so much of my life to this great event. Seven years ago I volunteered as a backstage dresser, happy to be apart of an influential event within Canada. Two years later I was honored to receive the position of Backstage Production Coordinator, working directory with over 40 talented designers, managing around 100 models and prepping/organizing the chaos of the backstage life. Yes…VANJA (founder and CEO of |FAT|) THANK YOU (from the button of my heart) for taking a chance with me…as Ms. Frizzle would say…take chances, make mistakes and get messy!
