I’m thrilled to announce that I will be participating in this year’s Emerging Toronto Artists Awards! The award show will take place on October 21st at District 28 in Toronto. A Pre-Show Exhibit will take place on September 22nd and 23rd at the Super Wonder Gallery, more information about the Pre-show will be announced at a later date! At the awards show on October 21st, I will have a booth set up with my watercolour paintings, drawings and acrylic paintings. This will be my third time participating at the ETA Awards and I’m as excited as I was for the first one in 2014!

Taken from the ETA Awards:
" A Thriving Artist represents positivity, encourages their peers, has a missile-focused mindset and utilizes the networks around them, in an effort promote themselves while supporting others. The Thriving Artist is driven by their passions and is liberated by the opportunity to be an entrpreneur, supporting themselves every day simply by doing what they love.
The design of this awards category in our event, is to identify and reward artists who maximize their audience/social reach by building a following - through social networking, skill/talent, brand & online/in person salesmanship. "
