About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Art therapist
Location Gulf Islands, British Columbia, Canada
Introduction I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis. I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
