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.”

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

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!
