I love the mystery of creativity

I love the dance of paint intermingling on canvas

I love the music inside my head

I love sometimes not knowing where I am going

And finding where I want to be…

Entered Timeraiser Ottawa


A friend told me about a really unique type of fundraiser, called Timeraiser which seems to be too good to be true.  They understand both sides... artists who want to contribute and be paid, and people who can volunteer time [not money]

I have put 5 of my pieces of art into their judging process, and I really hope that I get picked to contribute to this opportunity.

Here is one of my pieces that I submitted...

Blast the Radio


In the local area, there is an internet-based radio station, known as "Blast the Radio" that is produced and hosted by a great guy - John Mielke.  I have had the fortune of being on his #CapiTALent showcase on Tuesdays.

Internet-radio is growing, and the whole industry is changing - largely due to #AppleMusic and #iTunes.  It's interesting to see the whole industry changing.

Stand-by your radios.. or your computers... or your iPhones.  Heck, just tune-in and listen to his show, and you will hear my song "Box of Shelter" and more.

Facebook?

Hey all.  

Since my last post here in 2012 - I started up a Facebook Fan page, just to see what it's like to use social media for communicating about my art.  I like it, but it's not quite the same as this blog.  [www.facebook.com/Julie.Shephard.Artist]

I restarted using the blog, with the intent of posting more in-depth about my art and music activities. Facebook is great for sharing instant "things", but harder for the thoughts that I really want to share.

Many of you know by now, that I moved back to the Ottawa region, and now am even an "empty-nester".  This shift has been interesting, and sometimes inspirational in my "art"

Stay-tuned here, and join my Facebook Fan page for more.
