Shows Last Summer

Most of the pieces I've been posting were included in a fibre art group show put on by the Mark Makers -  which I'm part of - last summer at the Victoria College of Art.  'The Texture of Blue' is indigo dyed, felted and hand stitched wool, cotton and silk.  It's a response to my experience of  blue: sadness, grief and loss encompassing deeper fissures, hidden pockets, fraying, unraveling, wearing out and fading over time.


'Seeing the Grain' is machine stitched on silk and was inspired by the grain in a sheet of plywood surrounding a construction site.  Beauty is everywhere waiting for me to notice.
'Reaching the High Notes' was in the Sooke Fine Arts Show last summer - and its name captures how I felt!

Welcome back to cyberspace. We missed you. This is such a good idea to review and record a year's work in this way.
