Thrifting success!

Yes! Need I say more? Finally found the elusive bead toy for our waiting room installation. $3.99 at the Sally Ann. Thank-you to whoever donated it!

Pens down…books closed

 

Finally finished The Sketchbook Project! Things I learned:

1. I like to make more work for myself (i.e. sign-up for something that sounded like a good idea at the time, only to realize there’s more important things to be working on, but finish at the last minute because not finishing would mean failure)

2. There’s always a way to justify buying new art supplies! Now I am the proud owner of blue and sepia Prismacolor fine liners.

3. When there’s a will, there’s a way. When you make something a priority, it gets done! Which reminds me that I think I’m overdue for a re-evaluation of my priorities…

 

Here’s a few pics of my finished sketchbook. Hope you enjoy! Now, I’m off to the post office to get this thing shipped away and out of my mind.


Finishing touches…hopefully

Just a couple weeks until Lindsay and I install our show. It’s come quickly. I think we’re on schedule, although when I told this to Lindsay she gave me a look that seemed to say she didn’t agree. But, I honestly think this show is coming together well, and has induced less panic & stress compared to shows in the past (hopefully that doesn’t change in the next couple of weeks).

Opening reception is Feb. 10 starting @ 7pm. Check out the facebook event for details.

Lindsay and I have been at work for our show again. With Christmas and New Years coming up, it will be happening in no time. Check out Lindsay’s post about our recent progress.


Drawin’!

I’m pretty excited for my upcoming collaborative show with Lindsay Joy. For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a drawing for part of the show. It’s nice to take a break from weaving, and work on tiny, detailed drawings instead. It is quite satisfying.

For those of you who were unable to check out my show, here are a few pics. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below, my latest work, Repository.


Sinew

I have a show up at the Marion Nicoll Gallery. It felt like being back in school again, working to get everything finished. The show runs from Oct. 3-14 with the reception on October 13 from 5-7pm.

Sinew explores the body as textile, and plays with the idea of representation through the use of traditional textile processes. The body is depicted by the accumulation of individual strands of yarn, speaking to the intricacy of the human body, and the intervention of modern medicine. Like tapestry weaving and lacemaking, medical and surgical procedures require knowledge and skilled handwork as the body is cut, manipulated, and stitched.
