Hi my name is, Joy Kissoon I live, and work in the community of London, Ontario, Canada. In 2010, I made my first attempt to reveal a personal side to me by registering with London Art Council (LAC). I created a profile, then needed to wait for approval which took a while then I attempted to upload my paintings and found it almost impossible. Finally, I was able to upload 1 painting after shrinking it. I then proceeded to check the information on the site and found the 1 pic. I uploaded after much ado wasn't in public viewing. Okay! I'll have to find another way to reveal my Art to the public.
I never tried to access the LAC account again, because I found it to be limiting at best. Since this time I've received some updates from LAC most of which I found to be quite useless, until today.
I was sent information to apply for the; Charley Fox Memorial Public Art Project and Chris Doty Award of Excellence, and for the first time I was actually able to open, view & use the application. The opportunity to focus on my Art intrigues me to no end.
I've officially sent off my application to LAC today and now I've decided to also upload some of my paintings to YOUTUBE. If I get this project, I intend to pole Londoners regarding my final proposal for completion of The Charley Fox Memorial project. I've been painting for the last 12--15 years and want to post some of my Paintings for the public viewing.
Another pressing concern of mine as a health care professional in North America, is the level of pain, illness and suffering in our society. If I get this project, I intend to use whatever money is left over after the project completion to start a Non-Profit North American Treatment/Wellness Centre. My Art and my professional background will be a huge asset in creating "A Publicly available Wellness & Treatment Centre."
This Display has been altered: Genuine artist oil paintings with an arcylic.
This Public Art Project with LAC is going into it's final stage--I am nolonger a participant.
