After much excitement about returning to the stage post Covid, my recovery from injuries sustained last September which have prevented me from performing for longer than 15 minutes at a time, has plateaued and I have so far been unable to return to my usual show preparation and performance routine. I was SO excited to perform a couple of short shows recently, and I’m excited to return to the stage in a more regular and full length capacity, and with that in mind, I will be concentrating on rehabilitation until further notice. I will be releasing my new single & video recorded last year sometime in the summer, whether or not I am able to perform. I am excited, to look forward to that, and at a later date, performing once again.
A peaceful and calm song by Debussy… one of my favourites, filmed at Phantom Creek Estate Winery in Oliver, British Columbia- one of the most beautiful wineries I have had the pleasure of visiting with a beautiful peaceful song. Oliver is known as the wine capital of Canada! It really was one of the most beautiful places in the world!
These beautiful sculptures were created by Wu Ching Ju, Pro Terra et Natura (For Earth and Nature) and are one of three sets by this artist.
Thank you @PhantomCreek for having us, and thank you Anna Kova dress rental for this stunning white dress!

String changing is something I usually teach in a violin lesson, but since so many of you ask about it, and thanks to Covid we are not able to teach in person as much as before, so check out the video below! I’m using a string set by Pirastro, called Perpetual, which is quite new, and I’m excited to say that they project very well and have an incredibly rich and imposing sound. I’m thrilled to be playing them, I will continue to use them, and thank you Pirastro for allowing me to try them!
