Live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada
It has morphed over the years from a solely textile art practice to accommodating the creation of large scale abstract paintings on canvas.
It hasn’t a speck of glamour, is tiny but efficient, is often an explosively colourful mess and there is no other place I’d rather be.
Even though my work has moved toward abstract painting, I have a show coming up entitled “Visible Mending.”
A few of the paintings that will be in the exhibit have been pieced together from smaller pieces of canvas and hand stitched together.
Two large long works (about 7 ft) will hang unstretched in the manner of a weaving or tapestry.
So, all that to say, I have not abandoned my fibre art roots!
Can't live without....
My well broken-in brushes
My pigment stained studio apron—putting it on signals the start of the creative process
Music — usually jazz
Feeling the drag of a brush as it releases paint on the surface of the canvas
