Jodie Tucker, resident artist at Chateau Sainte Catherine, has transformed La Galerie into a "Fantasie Salon" for her current one woman show, which runs till end of August.
Interspersed with the paintings are hand painted screens, lampshades, cushions and fabric. Her creations also include prints and cards taken from her original designs. My photos do not do the show justice. Come see for yourself!

Below is the lampshade Jodie made for my last Gemini Birthday. She used my photo from the series I have been working on (inspired by Angela Voss and Carrie Paris), "The Secret Life of Statues."
The photo in front of the books is of my mother as a young girl. I've been trying to bring her back into my soul in a new way...my mother staring out into the moment, not knowing what lay ahead, not seeing the 4 somebodies growing inside her - the seeds and sway of her life - a mystery yet to unfold.
ABCEDARIAN POEM ON ANGELS
Angels DO exist!
believe me, I know, I
can see one standing in the
doorway right now; this is not an
flight of fancy, I swear it is a
genuine card carrying
heart-beating angel, and if
I can see it, so can you.
John O' Donohue said we are all
knocking on Heaven's Door, even when the
lights are out and the
moon is hiding behind the clouds.
Nothing can stop
our Guardian angel from
rearranging the furniture so we don't trip on the
stairway to Heaven,
tucking us in at night
under a sky studded with starry cousins
visible to anyone
willing to look hard enough to see their
xylem and their
yearning to save us from ourselves,
Zany as this all might sound.
