Lottery Calendar


Welcome to 2017 and the new SB&H TGIF Lottery Calendar.

Our artist profiles were so popular last year, that we are once again excited to let the artists tell you a little about themselves. This year, we are looking back at the work of 12 talented artists from across Ontario who contributed work to past calendars over the last ten years.

Read on to find out a little more about this month's artist and enjoy their work. 


Meet our January artist, Tessa Troch from Sault Ste. Marie:

1. How did you come up with the idea for this drawing that is included inside the calendar. 

Aside for my appreciation for music, I am also fascinated with nature and slightly obsessed with anything disney-related.  And so, I was inspired to create this drawing while listening to the music from one of my favourite disney films: Pocahontas.

2. Why do you like drawing/painting or taking pictures?

For me personally, drawing and taking pictures is one way for me to relieve stress.

3. How did you feel when you heard your artwork was selected for the TGIF Calendar?

I was extremely happy when asked to contribute my drawing to the 10-Year Look Back at Art in the TGIF Calendar.

4. How has the Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario assisted you and/or your family?

The Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario has assisted me tremendously throughout my 18 years of life.  This association has provided me and my family with valuable information pertaining to my disability as well as an abundance of support.
