Spring has sprung in the National Capital! Join me at Landsdowne Park on this Victoria Day Weekend. I'll be there 10-5 May 19-21, 2018 at the Aberdeen Pavillion. It's supposed to be a lovely weekend...and we soooooo need it!!!
Just finished a 5 day online mini course on how to better light your products. It's sooo empowering to see the gems that Amy Eaton has passed on actually working to give me more control over my images.
I used Amy's techniques to help take this picture of my Wilbur Pincushions. (They're all called Wilbur....easier for me to keep track of them that way!) . I still have a long way to go but I'm confident with the tools I've got!! I'll keep yas posted with updates!
Over the past 25 years as I traveled in my career as an animator I gleaned an acute awareness of the tactile nature of textiles. I took many classes in embroidery, pottery, batik, bead stringing and making
and finally in Berlin I found the art of felt making. In 2002 I made the decision to focus less on my animation career and more on my fibre art path. I have continued to explore all the joys and trials of being a fibre artist, but I do jump back in to animation when something wonderful comes along. I worked on the Universal feature "Curious George" in 2005 and on "The Princess and the Frog" which is a Disney feature and was released in December 2009.
I continue to try out new things, taking a wire sculpture course in Haliburton ON a couple years ago and just recently learnimg the art of Rug Hooking.
