Papergirl Vancouver

Just dropped off a little stack of my art prints for the Papergirl Vancouver art project. So excited to participate in this redefinition of street art combining Art, Philanthropy, and Bicycles.

I love the idea behind this project. It's about building community through sharing - "the art of giving art." Beautiful. It's so true to how things ought to be.

Here's how it works: Artists from around the world donate their work for an exhibition (
August 13th, 2013 at the Roundhouse Community Centre from 6-9pm), and afterwards the artwork is rolled up and delivered by cyclists around metro-Vancouver to anyone they happen upon. So if you're out and about on August 24th you might be one of these lucky unsuspecting strangers, and get some new sassy art for your walls! Neat eh.

Hope to see you at the opening reception/ exhibition! And fingers crossed you will be one of the lucky receivers of an art gift...


  1. I really like the one on the left though they are all beautiful. What a neat idea! I'd love to look into donating a piece myself next year. Do you need to be accepted to enter the exhibit or can anyone contribute?

    1. Thanks, yes anyone can enter (it's non-juried), and they accept entries from all over the world. There's still time if you want to enter this year. You can drop off your art at Place Des Artes in Conquitlam until July 31 (I checked out your blog and see you're in Coquitlam which isn't far from where I am in New West - neat to find another local creative soul :).

  3. Thanks for letting me know. Due to the time restraints of the babies I'm trying to focus on just writing this year - though I did have the sketch book out today again... In terms of being local, do you know of any local life drawing drop-in classes in the Tri-cities?
