Currently enjoying a bi country early retirement lifestyle North of the Border in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada and South of the Border in San Miquel de Allende, Mexico. Having started facillitatingg Artist Way groups about ten years ago, in the dining room of my heritage home in downtown Penticton, B.C. I continued thre Artist Way journy in Nanaimo, B.C. through Julia Cameron’s three AW books in the trilogy, the Prosperous Heart and The Sound of Paper. My second winter in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico I led a very successful group of 12 for the third book, ‘Finding Water, the Art of Perserverance.’ We wrapped up our session with five artists participating in an art collective right in my iving room and mirador for the Annual Open Studio Tour of the Ajijic Societyt’s of the Arts. My first winter in San Miquel, I was a member of Joseph Bnnet’s AW grupo. For the upcoming 2014/15 winter in SMA, I plan on registering for a Continuing the Artist Way/SMA meet up grupo on http://www.meetup.com as a launch pad, so to speak!
