The community built this church in 1787, over 225 years ago. It is a beautiful historical church where they celebrate Christianity and host many other community events such as, graffiti exhibits, concerts, plays, choirs… and more recently they have a huge circus tent on their property, ‘Chapiteau Eugene Chaplin’ who is the son of the legendary ‘Charlie Chaplin’. It is a beautiful place where many of our community events take place. They give mass in French and Spanish and have a multi-cultural choir. It truly is a beautiful place in my community.

 

“I am multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in mosaics and living in beautiful Quebec, Canada “et oui je parle francais”. I am inspired by peace, people, animals, places, social justice and the world around me. I have a particular passion for upcycling discarded materials and creating beautiful art.

I have been working in my community to create several mosaic murals with students and intellectually handicapped adults, artistic director in local parades, putting on a show, going in seniors’ residences and schools to create art, anything that involves people and art is where you will find me (or in my garden).

I am the artist in residence with a group of intellectually handicapped adults at their day placement, a true blessing.

Having been a long time sufferer of Crohns disease I understand the importance of having access to medical care and Doctors/Nurses. Therefore, I am very excited to contribute a mosaic to this wonderful cause. “
