This blog is an attempt to organize, to document and to share my passions, as a visual artist, foodie and life learner. (June 2, 2010)
Welcome to the current 3 corners of my life…
1) Visual artist (www.NicoleArt.ca) – Posts include: photographs, writings, ideas, techniques, colour scheme, business successes and challenges, links to useful sites, books and links to other artist blogs etc.
2) Monosodium glutamate (MSG) resource – I was diagnosed with a MSG hypersensitivity at the age 3. This section provides a summary of information about manufactured glutamate (food flavour enhancers). Posts include: glutamate labels, symptoms, links, favourite recipes, nice and accommodating restaurants in Ottawa and safe commercial foods.
3) Life-Skills, Mental Health and Well-Being – I have an undergraduate in psychology, and have worked and volunteered with children, youth and adults within the mental health field. The Ontario Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities are sites that I am interested in. The first two links, link to the Ministry of Education homepage and the teacher curriculum outlines from grades K-12, an important resource for parents and students as well. The third link connects to Ontario Skills Passport. I will be researching, analyzing information and will make posts regarding my ideas over the next few months.
