This winter has found me exploring with different materials and learning new techniques to express ideas and concepts. Among them are glass beads, silk embroidery and furs. The concept-based works speak to my thoughts on the fur trade and my feelings toward our collective Canadian social history. They are also quite personal and link to my feelings about hunting, trapping and patriotism. The series is not yet complete but I’ve attached one piece here for your perusal. It is the first one to be "unveiled". The remaining works are tentatively slated for a future solo show (details forthcoming).
