I'm an interdisciplinary artist in Winnipeg. My work is pretty much always about feelings.
Interested in quiet, soft (both literally and not) forms of feminist practice, unicorns, and TMI.

stitching

I’ve been feeling really out of it lately.  I’m not sure what’s up.  I  blissfully missed a department meeting yesterday, and didn’t realize it until 1:00.  I forgot to put my name on an essay(Seriously?!  Am I in elementary school?) and accidentally printed it out in a huge font.  I feel pretty dumb right now. …

stitching

I’m taking a break on my embroideries for my grandmother to work on this – an image from a large “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” embroidery pattern I found in a box of books.  It’s at least 50 years old, so I was pleasantly surprised when it still ironed on.  I’ve been trying …

Studio time.

I haven’t been in the studio in at least 3 weeks. I’ve been busy with work, Golden and a busy head. I didn’t expect this to happen, in fact, I have had a jar of dye in the fridge since then, and have had some scarves rusting for weeks. Hopefully they get better and not …

I decided it would be special to use her embroidery hoops to make objects for and about her. They’re …

Weaving.

I’ve been enjoying weaving, while at the same time am not sure how to incorporate it into my practice. My instructor in repeat printing suggested we try to make the next project kind of begin to fit in with what we’d like to be doing, since we end up learning all these separate processes and …

mini show!

The miniature show (and fibre fortnight) is/are up! Hooray! I am exhausted. We’d been getting worried at the last if we’d have enough submissions, but we’ve had about 43, which is apparently more than last year, and with only like three weeks notice! It’s pretty exciting to accomplish something like that. On the other hand, …

ArtaWEARness

Friday and Saturday night I volunteered as the assistant to an artist participating in ArtaWEARness. I was wardrobe-malfunction repair lady, keeper of anachronisms(ipods, hair elastics) and door-holder. It was a great experience, and I will definitely be applying next year. Several of the artists had been in the wearable art class and the Regalia show …
