Galleries — Ballet
My drawing, ‘La Danseuse’, combined with a love of ballet, gave me the courage in 1984 to approach a local ballet school to arrange a photo shoot of one of their classes. I moved to Victoria shortly thereafter and the photos, along with my drawing pens, were filed away but never forgotten. Almost 25 years later, I dusted them off and began drawing the eighteen images of Ballet Studies.
A series of greeting cards followed from those drawings and I’m pleased that, once again, The National Ballet of Canada has chosen to offer them in their Ballet Boutique.
Ballet Victoria’s Ballet Boutique sells them and they are under consideration by several other ballet companies across Canada and around the world.
The cards are also available in the WORKS FOR SALE section.
I hope the grace and beauty that so magically pulls me to ballet shines through in this series of young dancers hard at work pursuing their dreams.
The National Ballet of Canada chose ‘La Danseuse,’ my first ballet pen and ink drawing, as the image for their annual greeting card in 1983. It has remained a very popular print and greeting card with balletomanes over the years.
