Spotlight on Project 31: A live auction in support of OCAD U students
Talented artist and supportive alumni Elaine Waisglass is directing the auction proceeds from her work to the Photography program!
“I grew up in a bleak Toronto suburb in a house where the garden consisted of a bit of grass front and back, a skinny maple tree in the front yard and a wire fence. My grandmother, on the other hand, had a very different kind of garden. It had beautiful colours and perfumes, flowers for vases, fruits and vegetables for dinner. To me, that little garden was paradise. From the time I was a very little girl my greatest wish was that one day I would have my own garden just like hers. Many years later my dream came true. The only problem was winter, when there were no flowers at all, only a thick blanket of snow. The solution was to photograph the flowers so I could see them all year round.”
“More than anything I must, must have flowers, always, always.” – Claude Monet
