Gigi the Giraffe & Richmond Hill 2017 Cultural Summit

Thank you for inviting Gigi the Giraffe to participate in Richmond Hill’s 2017 Cultural Summit on Thurs., Mar. 30th, 2017 at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.  Gigi was created with funds received through the generosity of Richmond Hill’s 2016 Community & Cultural grant.  She is based on a the pink giraffe in the popular children’s book titled, We Are Colourful Friends.2-10-2017_gigi-the-giraffe-at-the-rhpl_v2_img_7593

Introducing–Gigi (sculpture)

Here’s a picture of my new sculpture. Her name is Gigi and she is based on the image of the giraffe from my book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends”.

THANK YOU to all my colourful friends at the Richmond Hill’s Community & Cultural department for your generous grant. Your support made it possible to bring Gigi to life.

There are 11 characters in my book and I have completed 7 sculptures. Once I complete the other 4 sculptures my goal is to have an exhibition at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.

If booking a JK/SK interactive workshop at your school or library you can now choose to have Gigi the pink giraffe visit your class instead of Ruby the red flamingo.

Finally, thank you to everyone that helped me pick Gigi’s name. I think it really suits her.
