Dancing Hands at Inverness County Centre for the Arts

Check out my pieces “Epicentres” and “Still Waters Run Deep” hanging as part of the  Hands Dancing show at the Inverness County Centre for the Arts running July 5-28, 2019, in Inverness, Nova Scotia.

These pieces showcase two distinct styles I work in – each employing different surface design techniques. Moving between these styles keeps things interesting for me. I also do a lot of thinking about how to meld the two of them…fun for the future.

I hope you get out to the show in Inverness. There are several other highly talented textile artists showing their work along with other visual artists. And what a great excuse to get out and explore beautiful Cape Breton Island.

AQC 2017 Day 3 – Play Day

My morning walk thought…wouldn’t “Wheatstalk” be the best name every for a huge country music festival…just sayin. I’m sure someone out there has already thought of this but it it cracked me up when it crossed my mind and I had to share. 🙂

Maybe it’s the soft hues of the wheat influencing me but yesterday I played with a much more subdued color palette than usual. Below are  images of the collage that’s emerging.

“Me Before and After”

I’m rediscovering my love of needle and thread, textiles, texture, quilting and color, color, color and more color. However, first things first. Before jumping into new projects I’m completing a few left over from the past.

Here’s a peek at one (a self portrait) I’ve had on the go for sometime. I’ve finally decided how to finish it so I’m looking forward to a creative weekend.
