Gigi the Giraffe (sponsored by Richmond Hill’s 2016 Community & Cultural grant) is participating in Richmond Hill’s Cultural Summit today at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. Tickets are complimentary. Hope to see you there. Featured in picture–Mayor Dave Barrow.
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.
I will be participating in my first Canadian Society of Children’s Authors Illustrators & Performers Conference on Sat., Nov. 19th, 2016 at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute in Toronto. If you are planning on attending please ASK ME ABOUT Ruby.
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.
