NEW STUDIO SPACE
I am very excited to announce that at the beginning of December I will be expanding my studio space. I am still located at Studio #480 at 1000 Parker Street Studios but my new 700+ square foot space will accommodate new large scale work and a lounge area for visitors to enjoy a cup of tea, a glass of wine or even some homemade treats! More photos to come of the evolving space! If you would like to view new pieces in progress, please contact me at (604) 812-6509 or at email@example.com.
A GIFTED LOOM FROM ARTIST LYNNE GREEN
Last year, fellow artist Lynne Green approached me with a generous gift that sat in her basement collecting dust, awaiting its perfect owner. This gift was a beautiful Leclerc Jack loom. The loom now sits in my home and has woven all my pieces for this years' annual Eastside Culture Crawl. Words cannot express how grateful I am for her generosity. Lynne's wonderful work can be found on her website at www.lynnegreen.ca.
WORK FILMED ON THE TV SERIES "MOTIVE"
My work will be filmed on Season three's TV Series "Motive". This sixteen week shoot in Vancouver will feature local Vancouver artists. Thank you so much to Louise and Ross, the set decorator and production manager of the series for supporting local artists as well as this amazing opportunity!
