Riverdale ArtWalk is a FREE two-day, public fine art exhibition  showcasing established and emerging artists in Jimmie Simpson Park and  Community Centre in Toronto's flourishing Queen East arts district. The  first outdoor art show of Toronto's season, the Riverdale ArtWalk is a  great place to connect with artists and buy that perfect piece for your  home!

The festival hosts over 165 participating artists and the inclusion  of local community groups and food vendors. Now in its 120th year in the  Riverdale/Leslieville area of Toronto, the festival has grown to reach  an audience of over 20,000 art enthusiasts and supporters. Through new  partnership opportunities with the local BIA, the Riverdale ArtWalk  expects to continue to grow.

During the summer, I participated in an art residency in Assisi, Italy at Artestudio Ginestrelle. This art residency was found in the Subasio mountains on the outskirts of the town of Assisi.  I worked on watercolours there, and one of my paintings will be featured in the International Contemporary Art Exhitibion.
