How One BBNC Volunteer Contributed Her Amazing Talent!

Tiffany had been participating in a number of the BBNC Bridges 2 Community programs when she decided she wanted to give back to the organization that has helped her become more familiar with her new community.  When she approached B2C Coordinator Dona Hird and Volunteer Coordinator Linda Curley, both were overwhelmed by the talent that Tiffany was willing to share on a volunteer basis.

With very few basic descriptions, Tiffany created an amazing gallery of acrylic paintings to display in BBNC's hallways.  Tiffany envisioned each board before beginning her work, and she also shared her thought process as a brilliant testament.

Some of Tiffany's artwork is displayed here, but to see the full effect please come on in and visit BBNC.  Click on any of the images below for a larger view.

Thank you Tiffany for all of your work.  We can't wait for the next project!

If you have a talent you would like to share with your community and neighbours, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Linda Curley at 416-396-7579 or by email at lindac@bbnc.ca.  She would love to hear from you!

Tiffany's painting of a dream with wings

When I started to paint this board I asked myself what I want to show and what I can give.  After two days I decided to draw this picture of a dream with wings.  I hope everyone can have powerful Monarch butterfly wings.  Love the way you are, give yourself wings and follow your dreams.

This tranquil backdrop makes us feel BBNC is a comfortable place to be.  In a sunny summer day we ride our bikes with friends or family, just stop by to find we are in a building that is like a home away from home.
