Working with my partner Bren, I was able to observe and record his process in the kitchen as he made sourdough bread! Honestly what a treat, and a fun time together. Collaborating and being creative together is always better when it’s with someone you love.
Last week I collaborated with local maker Kami Goertz, an incredible textile artist whose work is so unique and detailed. I took some time on a sunny afternoon, filmed her creative process and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Here are some screenshots from that shoot! I’ll post the completed piece once I finish the final edit.
Spent part of my afternoon at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, checking out the current exhibit “In Place: Reflections of Manitoba”. The space is undergoing some massive renovations in the midst of the pandemic so the exhibit space is limited, but SO well done. I snapped some pics while I was there and wanted to share them.
Creativity is like a well and sometimes it can run dry. I’ve had that feeling so many times…but getting out of my routine, checking out local art and taking pictures was the best way to reenergize my inner artist and fill the creative well back up.
I was at my studio on Sunday organizing and cataloging some of my work, and I couldn’t resist taking a few pics with my new Canon DSLR. I can remotely connect it to my phone, hence the pic of me holding my phone. I always enjoy being in my creative space, it’s energizing with all the sunshine and it’s fun to look back through my collection of art. Hope everyone is having a good start to your week.
This monochromatic piece was done in Prussian blue and I’m just so happy with this. The tone, hues and the variation from one colour are extraordinary. Excited to work with this colour more.
I love being downtown, there’s something about the buildings, all the activity and sounds of people and the rush of cars passing by that give me all the good feels. Here’s a few shots in glorious black and white in my city of Winnipeg
During the holiday season I painted a gift for my husband, a piece based around his experience during a sweat lodge where an elder gave him his name and his colours.
Yellow, red and black.
I wanted to capture the clarity of the moment coupled with the intensity of a new responsibility given to him. From the darkness of the sweat lodge comes new light.
Living in Manitoba means living with winter on the prairies; cold, endless and always so beautiful. I grew up in rural Manitoba and I’ve always loved the cleansing palette of a harsh winter day. The clearer the sky the more brutal the temperatures seem to be, and I kind of love it.
I recently picked up a Dji Mini 2 drone and I took it out for a spin on a frigid winter weekend. I collected the footage and started playing with it, overlaying the images to create something that is familiar and kind of out of this world. Sometimes that’s how it feels here in Manitoba, like a cold distant planet and I’m happy to call this place my home.
(Sidenote I made my first foray into muzak, I created the music and sounds for this and I’m really happy with the results)
Such a simple colour, but the hue is so nice. I love this pink. I was playing around with portrait pink and aqua green and created this little graphic. 16×20 in acrylic.
Sat down at my canvas with no plan, and I am so pleased with how this one turned out.
Something so moody about the city after a rainfall, especially in black and white. A bit unusual since it’s January but we will take it. It will be snow and -35 soon enough.
