Old interviews. Same opinions

In many ways not much has changed for me. This interview and article was featured in HERE magazine. I can’t remember the precise date. But it was at least 10 years ago that the exhibit was held at the Imperial.
I still love capturing our city. My fondest dream is still to revitalize the F. W. Woolworths building on Charlotte and King. That dream sadly has all but vanished with the demolition of my favourite building.
Saint John has bloomed and blossomed in a lot of wonderful ways since this article though. The vibe in the uptown continues to change in a new and exciting direction with new shops, restaurants and patios.
It was fun to come across this old article. My art mentor from many years ago would be so pleased. She was sweet and eccentric and just shy of 90 years old when she passed away. She would bring in clippings of art selling for large amounts of money and artists features. Pointing her finger she would say very adamantly “ This should be YOU!! You should be in the paper ! You are the most prolific artist I’ve ever met !” …. God love her !
So I immediately went home and looked up the word “ prolific “ in the dictionary!! Hahaha No google then!
Talk soon
