Thank you 'Your City' Magazine!


While shopping in London today, I came across a copy of the newly launched 'Your City' Magazine. ('Your City' is London's Multicultural magazine.)
Quite some time ago, I was interviewed for an article for the magazine, and upon reading it, I thought they did a wonderful job.
Please click the above photo for a larger image of the online article. (Please note that the image above is a condensed version of the online article)

Visit http://yourcity.yourmagazines.ca/ for further information and articles, as well as locations where the magazine is distributed.

TV SEGMENT VIDEO-HGTV'S PURE DESIGN


video
Back in late October 2008, I was filmed for a segment on episode #1008 of HGTV's Pure Design, hosted by Samanth Pynn. I was commissioned to make a large wall piece for their makeover space. I must say that before the episode aired...I was a little nervous, but those nerves quickly faded once I saw what a great job they did! Thank you to all involved, and a special thank you to Samantha Pynn.

The posted video clip (above) is a condensed version of the episode, and not the entire episode. Please visit the show's website http://www.hgtv.ca/puredesign/default.aspx to access the entire episode & season, as well as find out all of the products that were used on the episode.

HGTV's Pure design airs on Tuesdays 8:00pm ET | 10:00 PT.

If you missed the show, pick up the January 2009 issue of Style at Home Magazine, as there is a wonderful article about the episode.

The pictured carved bronze piece is the one used in the makeover space.
