First off, maybe you can help me decide which of these three shots is the best. They are of a beautiful cast paper bowl made in 1998 by Canadian artist Janet Moore, with wasp paper and bone insertions and a whale vertebra base.
The sun was setting as I took these photos. Just as I was leaving I caught this shot of a fisherman on his way home.
And slow but sure progress is being made on the whale.
I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis.
I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
