“What captures me about this neighbourhood wis the sense of balance… There’s so much room in this neighbourhood compared to others. The houses are proportionate to the people who live here.There’s lots of great little houses that are comforting as you walk through streets.

There’s lots of space for the trees. The houses don’t take up so much room that the trees can’t grow.

It’s all something that I wanted to capture. In this series, I have thirty-two pieces that I call ‘The Sunny Side of the Street.’

I’ve been painting for just under twenty years. The pieces are all at Framed on Fifth for people to come and look at.

My favourite place? Vendome is where I get coffee, but the little shops on 10th street–that’s what I love.” Cheryl Peddie.
