The Artist Within - January 2024

LAUREN WALKER Special to The Standard

First, I want to thank all those who purchased one of my Christmas ornaments. I started with 200 of each design and, with your help, sold out again in 2023. The good news is I already have this year's design in mind. I also hope to partner with a local business to create a special custom design, so please stay tuned.

Honorable Mention Award

This was a great Christmas gift and quite a highlight in my career as an artist. There were entries from all over the world, and I was so proud when I won an "Honorable Mention" in the Art and Colour 365 Magazine. My piece, "All the Small Things," was entered in the 2023 Figural/People Competition and is currently featured in their latest e-Edition. You can check out the online gallery at to see all the winners. I plan on entering into future competitions.

Station Gallery Juried Show

My piece, "All the Small Things," was accepted into the Station Gallery Juried show. Fellow members of the Port Perry Artist Association also had pieces accepted. The show is on for a limited time, so please visit sooner rather than later. Check their website for further info.

Local Supporting Local

I am so excited to work with a local business to create a custom sweater design for a 10th-anniversary celebration. Can you guess who it is? Yup, you'll be seeing my work adorning a limited edition "Old Flame Brewery" 10th anniversary sweater. For further information, please visit Old Flame today. Thank you to Bre Ferguson for reaching out to me. This is an amazing example of local supporting local.
