Art in Motion https://youtu.be/zq3_6K4mfI4 via @YouTube Here we have a simple two panel divider that was designed as a gift for a child. The concept I had when creating this was to have two frames stretched with canvas joined together with a thin hinge. The result is to have an open and closable apparatus that features a fun and imaginative design. When the piece is half closed it can be used as a play/dressing screen for a small child as it will stand on its own, yet is still… Read more Art in Motion: Creating the Weeping Beach →
The bright pink piece is entitled “Weeping Ocean”- however I am still deciding what to entitle the darker one. The contrast of their colour compositions didn’t exactly go as planned. I wanted the blues in the untitled piece to be a bit deeper- like a midnight blue. The most interesting and unusual aspect of this piece is that attached the frames to each other with a hinge. The two can be opened to stand on its own, or laid flat to be hung together.

I created this piece this month- it took about 6 hours. I really enjoy the colour composition; the play between light and dark. It’s really easy to lose yourself in the arrangements demonstrated, and I’ve found guests who have seen it in person to stare at the intersecting lines in a Rothko-esque fashion. (Famed artist Mark Rothko (d. 1970) was said to believe that large art is best observed 18 inches away from the canvas surface.) You can check out the listing for this piece here.
Colour composition is thrilling! I painted this acrylic on canvas a few nights ago. I may take further steps with this piece, but sometimes when it’s right, it’s perfect. Save

This is an experimental design of acrylic on canvas that I completed a few weeks ago. I call it: “Into the Bubble-verse”. My idea was to illustrate a universe of… Read more Bubble Universe- Exposed! →
My take on a classic half apron with blue frilly edging. This one was tough, because the seams have a border on the opposite side made from a bright multi-coloured print. It took a lot of patience to get everything lined up. I’m getting better every day and learning new techniques- conversely, sewing helps me stay focused on my life. Each stitch that helps to form a straight line reassures me that the end product will be beautiful if I just keep the needle on the right path. I can… Read more New Machines with Old Dreams →
