Hello Art and Craft Enthusiasts,

August 10, 2020

I hope you are enjoying the outdoors this summer. Alberta is full of opportunities for short day trips to which I am grateful for especially during this time of COVID-19. My camera has been well used on hikes in the Kananskis area and in our own backyard watching 4 little magpies learning to fly, find food, avoid danger, etc...

I continue to work on my series titled “Prairiescape-Remnants” where I gathered precious scraps of art materials to create patchwork prairie scenes. This series was inspired by connections with rural Alberta: my father’s recollections of living in a C.P.R. station, across the tracks from six grain elevators, my mom’s stitch work and thrifty ways, and my love of story. The grain elevator has become an icon of Canadian Prairie Life and the remnants of their past still exist in the minds of those who viewed, worked, visited and played in them. Sometimes these memories are embellished with excitement or even diminished because of memory recall. With this series I am interested in the abstract; pushing the envelope from representation.
