Studio Work

I’m about half way done with this piece. I wonder how Image Fusion will respond to the the coming request for a two by eight foot frame?


Studio Work

With the Café up and running with new staff members working away like pros, I am left with the job that doesn’t feel like a job. Aaaah, creating in my studio. Welcoming visitors to my beautiful c.1890 general store. This is the life!

Right now, I’m working on a new little hooked mat which will be one in a series of three. Part of my UNDERNEATH series. Duke’s favourite t-shirts have been sacrificed for this piece, so I hope it turns out well! I didn’t ask his permission, and I was caught cutting them up! Oops!

I posted the finished Hermit Cove Cups in the online shop yesterday, and I plan on making two more of these images in the coming days. You’ll see them here when I’ve got something to show!

Work in Progress

I’ve started painting a new 20-panel piece as a part of my UNDERNEATH Series. I’m projecting a photograph onto the canvases and painting through the image. I’ve not used this technique before for large scale paintings, but I’m really enjoying it. Of course, it works best at night in the dark.

Thanks to Duke for this photograph, and the underwater image being projected too!

The image being projected was taken with a GoPro camera in waterproof casing under spring sea ice at Ship Island (Greenspond) on a bitterly cold day. The image itself is outstanding, with ice crystals illuminated from above, and dark kelp attached to the rocks below. Duke and I have been capturing images like this for about a year now, and I have some real beauties to draw inspiration from.


This post was promised to one of my besties… screenshots of film footage I’ve been getting under the surface of the ocean (with lots of help from Duke) for my newest works in progress… I’m working on a series of paintings, prints, and textile pieces focusing on the ocean in relation to depression and life.
