The Land is our Teacher: Westfest Art Show 2014

May 27th, 2014

So once again, I have the great honor of exhibiting my art with some incredible artists. This year I have been creating new pieces in a project I’ve been calling the Birch project.
I have been creating beaded pieces inspired by white birch bark and creating pieces folded from birch bark. I am trying to push the boundaries of what is considered art and exploring what can be done with birch bark. I will also have some traditional pieces made from birch bark.
I want my pieces to feel alive and I hope that I have accomplished that.

Here is a preview and details for the show:

Along with my full size pieces I will have micro pieces for sale as well, like the one above.

Another Amazing New Sun Conference

March 3rd, 2009

Last Saturday, I attend the New Sun Conference, at Carleton University - an annual conference I’ve been attending for the last 8 years. I started attending when my dad told me that it was a conference on Aboriginal Arts and being interested in art I thought it sounded really cool. I loved the first one – I was inspired by the artists and amazed by what they were accomplishing in their fields. Since the first one I have listened to artists from many creative areas, such as culinary cuisine to musical performance.
