I am proud to be one of the artists chosen to participate in the Lighthouse 2014 event. I chose to pay honor to Heather Moyse, our “Hometown Hero.”
As a part of the ongoing PEI 2014 celebrations, the Lighthouse 2014 project was launched to showcase some of the artists of our region. The 17 lighthouses are 6ft tall and come complete with functioning lights. They are charming additions to our city for the summer months. On September 27th the lighthouses will be auctioned off for island charities. For tickets to the event, please go to the official website: http://lighthouse2014.com
I chose to design a lighthouse celebrating Heather Moyse, as she showcases the best of our island and is an inspiring role model for women the world over. My design pays respect to Ms. Moyse, Canada, Prince Edward Island, and Summerside. What better way to honor the founding fathers, which gathered in Charlottetown 150 years ago!
Thanks to my sponsor, Clarks Toyota! Thanks also to our media sponsor the Journal Pioneer, the City of Summerside and the PEI 2014 celebrations. With a big shout-out to the Project Organizer, Alex Maine!

Here’s a slide show of my lighthouse’s journey from start to finish:
