A few things to report since I launched the Cause & Effect Project (but which I realized I actually refer to as the loneliness project when I talk to people): A friend bought a copy of  issue 1 and asked if she could also distribute her copy; my response “abosolutely!”;…

I’ve just added a new project to my online portfolio. It’s called “Cause & Effect” and takes the shape of a zine (a DIY produced small magazine). It is a gift-card size zine made from one sheet of paper. The sheet is folded enough times to produce 16 pages. The…

A few weeks ago I started playing around with paper and paint to generate some ideas for a contemporary fabric quilt. I had a 5 x 5 inch accordion journal that I made last year, so I started working in this with the idea that the whole journal would be…

Technological Infiltration is a new media piece I created while I was taking a collage course at Emily Carr University of Art & Design. It is a 53-second audio piece about government, the future, and fear. In this course I explored collage not as a technique of cutting and pasting…

It’s pretty neat to see your work in a book. Two years ago I responded to a call for art journal pages to be included in a book. I think it was in 2014 when I got the news that 5 of my images would be included. I think I…

Hello, it’s been a while since I’ve popped in here. Last September I began my visual art studies at Emily Carr University of Art & Design, so that has kept me quite busy. I am exploring new directions in my work which is reflected in the addition of my 7-day…

Here is another cross-stitched piece completed by a participant (Elizabeth) at one of the Stitching with Purpose workshops I ran this past summer (2014). I asked Elizabeth why she chose that word for her piece and I recall her recounting a day when she had many things to do, one…

I’d like to share with you a craftivist project my sister Luisa recently completed. Luisa is new to craftivism. She was formally introduced to it at my first craftivism related workshop, “Stitching with Purpose,” that I delivered at Vancouver’s Mini Maker Faire in June. She had no idea what she…

The workshop I delivered this past Sunday (Stitching with Purpose) at Artful Sundays in Vancouver was a great activity for community members to come together and think about a personal craftivist message and do some stitching. I was pleasantly surprised at how many people decided to give this a try…

Finally had a chance to enjoy the summer here in British Columbia. A respite from art and especially from city life is always welcome. We took 5 days and explored the Sunshine Coast and had a great time camping in camp grounds reached by bumpy backroads, out of the beaten…
