The Secret Squirrel Show, features artwork that preserves Scottish lore, religious iconography and pop culture while using Contemporary motif and techniques often seen in Pop Surrealism.
The Final Word
Many thanks to everyone who came out to the show (and those in spirit), it was a magical afternoon.
A huge thank you to the folks who bought a piece of my artwork. I know you will take good care of the “secret squirrels.”
Over 100Â art enthusiasts arrived at theÂ Ferris’ Upstairs Oyster Bar toÂ enjoy whisky, wine, and hor d’oeuvres. It was a Sunday afternoon event, with relaxed and happy conversation.
The show continues May and June 2011.Â I invite you to head down to see the artwork. Ferris’ offers an amazing brunch and evening tapas menu.Â Check their website for hours of operation and location.
In an effort to raise awareness and funds for theÂ OCTA Collective Society,Â I pledged 10% of the proceeds made during the opening event. Together weÂ raisedÂ $306.91 towards theirÂ artsREACH program.

Fun video with live squirrels!
Here’s a link to myÂ online gallery to see the Secret Squirrel paintings. Below is a fun video featuring the real squirrels from our yard, and the paintings they’ve inspired.
For my next trick, I’m going to strip naked and attach squirrel tails to my *edited copy* and skip through the graveyard to the beat of polka music. How scandalous!Â Ok, I wanted to grab your attention, this next part is really important (smile).
