Lines From the Ocean

I wander the beaches of this island several times a week. There is so much beauty in the bits of flotsam left behind by the tide, I am having trouble distilling it. Call it visual overstimulation… In hommage to the shoreline, here is a trio of pictures from the edge.

Time Warp is the first major exhibition to feature the contemporary practice of textile and fibre art on the Northwest Coast. The show celebrates 22 emerging, mid-career and internationally recognized Aboriginal textile artists, (20 female, 2 male), from Alaska, The Yukon, BC, and Washington State.
The works demonstrate a breadth of expertise, innovation, and cultural diversity. Historically, textiles were marginalized because they were, and still are, considered to be women’s work and purely decorative. Time Warp challenges this gender bias, which has contributed to inequalities of recognition and representation.

Fresh Blue Spring

Spring Wonders

After months of silence, I have decided to get back online. Maybe it’s a little celebration of spring. After months of Pacific North-West rains, I really enjoy the beautiful light that comes through on afternoons when the sun breaks through the cloud cover.

I am wondering if I can get back in the creative groove. Some friends have been encouraging me to get going and there is some work going on in the studio… But the great outdoors is calling to me, and the garden too, of course… And with summer just around the corner, we expect visitors.

So. Steal little moments here and there, and get going on the ideas that have been swirling in my head for a while.
