Dan Gheno - National Academy

Julie's place




I'm back at my home after a great time in London! Here are just a few photos I took of Julie's studio & shop.
Not only is she talented and prolific but she is also very down to earth and super friendly.
Meeting her was a real delight!

Flea Market Treasures

A few treasures I scored
at the Sunday St. Lawrence flea market :)

The Paper Place



On top of all the wonderful memories I brought back with me from my trip to Italy, I also brought back amazing art supplies. Julie took Ann & me to visit The Paper Place on Tuscana St. I bought a whole stack of Italian 100% recycled handmade paper sheets from Saint-PAul in all sorts of lovely dark colors, beautiful japanese washi tape, inkpads, waxed linen thread, etc...
I'm already working on a new collage using a purple sheet!I also ate my first ever macaron from Nad├Ęge, across the street from The Paper Place. Thank you Julie for being such a wonderful tour guide.
