If you follow me regularly, you know that I spend much of my time researching innovative, creative, and thoughtful art and artists.

I want to promote the importance of culture and the contribution that artists make in helping us to see and interpret our world, and how art shapes our lives.

Sometimes, I come across an artwork that challenges my notions, and enhances my understanding of art.

I share these discoveries with you through solo and group exhibitions, and I invite curators and guest artists to expand our perspective.

I review artists from across the country. I do this through my connections with art schools and universities, local and national juried competitions, and often through referrals from curators and professional artists, I have the pleasure of knowing.

Elissa Cristall Gallery, Contemporary Art, Vancouver, BC Canada

From the beginning, I have supported Canadian artists from coast to coast. I attend exhibitions at public galleries and museums, I travel to art fairs, I visit artists in their studios and select those that I think are doing interesting work. I hope you benefit from the knowledge I’ve developed over the past 23 years as an engaged and enthusiastic supporter of the arts.

In 2020 I started the Artist Spotlight Project, a series of in-depth interviews to spotlight promising new talent as well as established artists. To complement the artist interviews, we present online exhibitions. Most artworks are available for purchase.

I look forward to your email inquiries, or simply call me at 604 730 9611.
