Journey and Return

Dandy Lines Red Deer MAG

I’m pleased to be returning to Red Deer, close to home and where I started art school years ago. It was a heart warming experience, and a real pleasure to see some familiar faces from Red Deer College and showcase Dandy Lines at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery.

Please join me for a free artist talk and register for my embroidermation workshop on Nov.26th at the Red Deer Museum

Dandy Lines at The Esker Foundation Project Space

I am absolutely thrilled with the latest installation of Dandy Lines in the Esker Foundation Project Space! I have always dreamed of applying mechatronics to these sculptures, and now, thanks to the Esker’s support, they are in motion! This exhibition is on until October 23rd and can be viewed from street level on 9th Ave SE. Opening reception will be on September 16th and I’ll be giving an artist talk on October 14th and an embroidermation workshop on October 15th. Check out a little video clip here!
