Owen and I did a joint project for the Sunshine Coast Woodworkers Guild 2 X 4 contest this year (June 2014). A book press and book. The books covers are made from spalded yellow cedar, the signatures from Fabriano watercolour paper. It was fun and the end projects came out beautifully. The book press was already pre-sold and so far I haven't had a reason to part with the book. Wonder if I ever will.
I am a self taught mixed media artist with a passion for book arts. Having spent years learning a wide variety of arts and crafts, I have branched out to train with a long succession of notable mixed media art instructors.
My studio, on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia is where I create with abandonment and where I share my knowledge with others. Art Escape Studio is a workshop/instruction based art studio for mixed media and visual arts. Most recently workshops have included soldering, transference, encaustic, calligraphy, watercolour, assemblage, collage and so much more….
