Welcome.  I am a Canadian stone carver and painter living in Norfolk County, Ontario.  I carve soapstone and other soft stones using traditional stone and wood carving tools. I sketch and paint on location and in studio using pen and ink on paper, and acrylics or oils on canvas or board. My inspiration comes from the nature that is all around me, in the Long Point World Biosphere Region, from my home studio located on the Long Point Causeway on the north shore of Lake Erie, Ontario.

Long Point Art Studio is located just outside of the village of Port Rowan, on Highway 59, which becomes the Long Point Causeway. Please contact me for an appointment to see my work. It's worth planning a day trip to this area, whether your interests are art, wine, antiques, a sandy beach, or birding.

🐢 Shop the Shore is May 5-7, 9am-5pm, 2023 🎨

I'm excited to be presenting my artwork during Shop The Shore again this spring.  I will have my garage workshop and studio set up and will also be demonstrating stone carving during the show.  Please feel welcome to visit and see my works-in-progress, and the finished carvings, paintings, and cards that I have for sale.

During your visit to Shop The Shore, be sure to visit some of the many other artisans, shops, wineries and breweries in the area.  May is a spectacular time to go birding at Long Point, too.  My studio is on an international migratory flyway, and you might see bird species you have never seen before.  A walk on the lovely Long Point Beach is always great, too, and only a 10 minute drive from my studio.

Shop the Shore is a twice-yearly shopping tour developed by the Long Point Country Chamber of Commerce.  Numerous stores and studios in Port Rowan and Long Point invite visitors to see their interesting items for sale.  During a busy day of shopping, local restaurants are open to keep you refreshed and fed.  Cindy
