The starry heavens have inspired generations of artists and will continue to inspire future artists.
Fabric was always an interest to me, texture and colour was the attraction. To be able to create unique clothing and art is a joy.
I began my career as a seamstress then graduated to a textile artist.
Northern Landscapes were a great inspiration for me until 2008, my subject matter changed to cosmic images. I used glass beads of various sizes and designs to capture the shimmering beauty of the Aurora Borealis and the images inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope. Beads are stitched to black velvet or canvas.
My favorite colors are yellow and blue. Yellow represents happiness; blue represents beauty and we certainly could all use some happiness and beauty in our daily life. I consider my artwork to be abstract, whimsical and beautiful. My finished product usually sparks interest in our limited knowledge of the universe to conversations of defining the difference between a galaxy, a glowing nebula or a dying star.
I live in Northern Canada and many times the Aurora Borealis can be seen dancing across the skies, and all other heavenly bodies are watching and applauding. I’m in AWE.
