Nothing is constant but Change

"Nothing is constant but change"

After  thirteen years of operation,

Gillmor's Coach House

has closed.

I am now able to spend 

my time as an artist. 

In 2021 I started a card line

Sparklestein Designs

After many requests, I am now offering 

Pet Portraits 

 


Me,My Work & Other Stuff

As you can see, I've been busy.  I loved running Gillmor's Coach House. It allowed me to connect with so many people. During the winter, when the store was closed,  I would spend my time painting or writing. I've written and illustrated two books. 

Ghost, The Bootlegger's Horse and Grandy's Gift.  

You can read more about them by going to the menu above. 

Now that the boutique has closed I am able to concentrate 

full time on my artistic and creative interests.

I have been painting all my life. I studied at The Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, 

and graduated with a BFA. I have exhibited and sold my work throughout the Maritimes.

 My subject matter has varied over the years but I kept returning to animals.  

I also have a love of Crows and Ravens. I think they are fascinating and magical beings. 

Everyone loves an original, but alas there is only one per person, 

so I started the card and print line Sparklestein Designs in 2021.

I have recently been asked to do Pet Portraits

A portrait of a pet is a great gift to someone else or to yourself.  

If you would like a portrait of a beloved furred companion,

Pet portraits from photographs are done with oils on canvas
