While in Toronto a couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate to be able to squeeze in a quick visit to artist/teacher/friend Colette Copeland's wonderful atelier. It was so lovely to see her and walk around in her creating space - really, her studio reminded me of an atelier in Paris! Even the coffee she made me reminded me of a Parisian cafe.
Colette is SO talented. She is a regular contributor to the Stampington publications such as Somerset Life. It was such a pleasure to actually look around and see all of her interesting and beautiful creations scattered about her studio. I have already collected several of her creations over the past year from her Etsy shoppe and had actually planned to choose one of her paintings to bring back home with me. I ended up getting two (!) paintings which I adore. Not only that, Colette gifted me with a few special little creations of hers to take home too - lucky me!
Since it's been so crazy busy at work and at home lately, I haven't had a chance to figure out where to hang my treasures from Colette but I do look forward to sharing them with you in the future...
