Studio #3 on the map. Flyers available out front at my studio 343 Waverley Road. South of Kingston Road, west of Main and east of Woodbine.
Roadside Legume / Grass: Small boxes showing the printed image (on silk) of two plants I brought back from Zambia – one a legume and one a grass. Felted into a fine white wool. 6″ x 8″. I made some lovely silk fabric out of the grass image too.
Watering Holes (18″x30″) From my new series of work “Inheritance” – persistence, resilience, finding and taking hidden value. These felts have tunnels to deeper layers, and embed silken images of prior felt pieces. I am using felts within felts to capture the sense of what is inherited and what will be inherited.
