I’m exhibiting along with other talented artists at the beautiful Illumine Gallery in St Thomas, Ontario. Opening February 11, 2017 7pm.
Many years ago, I was a gypsy soul exploring the Caribbean, traveling to Egypt, backpacking across Europe… These paintings capture my longing to be the gypsy wanderer once more; they transport me back to a delightful time before I became lost in motherhood.
Do you have a gypsy soul? Are you smitten by wanderlust?
“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. “Time” for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”
― Roman Payne
Coming up next:
February 24th (6-9pm) & 25th (11am-5pm), 2017 – RAILWAY CITY ARTS CRAWL – Railway City Brewing Company venue – A FREE winter event celebrating local arts and culture set in various venues throughout St. Thomas, ON
I’m excited to be participating in the Brush Off to help support the London Children’s Museum!
16 artists will test their skills through a painting competition. Guests cast votes determining who is crowned the night’s champion. http://www.londonchildrensmuseum.ca/support/brush
The Brush Off is a unique fundraising event featuring a live painting competition, great food and live and silent auctions. Sixteen artists will test their skills through 4 rounds of painting competition. Guests vote to determine who makes it through each round and is ultimately the night’s champion. Original works of art will be created at The Brush Off and guests have an opportunity to take a painting home by placing a winning bid, all while supporting the Children’s Museum.
Right now, 1 in every 5 children in London is living in poverty. The schools these children attend are unable to provide experiences to enrich the education and lives of their students because of cost and access barriers. With your support of The Brush Off, the Children’s Museum will be able to offer a subsidy to help with field trip costs including bus transportation to and from the Children’s Museum and pizza lunch, often a luxury for the children.

Since my artist friend Paula Mould keeps asking me to post photos of my process, here it is…These are 4 plywood panels 8″ x 10″ x 1″ each. I’ve used green painters tape to block off certain areas and started with some dark acrylic paint.
I cut out some bird shapes using coloured paper, then used a fine archival ink marker, Pigma Micron 01 to draw some designs.
The birds and other cut out paper shapes are glued to the panels using an acrylic gel medium. More paint is added.
More layers of paint are added, letting coats dry in between.
Some words are painted on…bloom, shine, dream and blossom.
Relax and enjoy colouring these intricate drawings. They will provide hours of stress relief resulting in your own delightful works of art. Coloured pencils are recommended.
Ann-Marie Cheung is a mixed media visual artist living in Ontario, Canada. She is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Toronto and has had numerous solo and group exhibits across Canada. Her award winning work can be found in numerous private collections around the world.
Here’s an example of a page coloured in. There is no wrong way to colour, you choose the colours that resonate with you. Coloured Pencils are recommended. Happy Colouring!
