My show at the Black Duck in Lunenburg turned out beautifully! Thanks to Liam, Dave and my mom for their parts in making the frames, and thanks to Ulo for the vinyl. Also, many thanks to everyone who came out for the opening!

I gave a special Watercolour workshop for grade six students at Pentz Elementary for the Fort Point Historical Society. The students created images inspired by maps designed by the the earliest European settlers of the Lahave region. I showed them how to use salt and oil pastels to achieve interesting effects with the paint.
The paintings turned out beautifully!
The students who created the Lunenburg Academy Memory Quilt Project and I were invited to a Genealogy Conference in Lunenburg. We were asked to speak about the process of making the quilt and officially handed over the quilt to the Academy.
The quilt currently hangs at the Bluenose Academy in Lunenburg. Check it out!

My amazing crew of seamstresses from the Lunenburg Academy and I have been very busy creating blocks for our memory quilt for the last seven weeks. Yesterday, we had a very productive session and the whole top has finally been pieced together. I am thrilled to present it in its almost-finished state!
Next week we will be stretching it on the frame and begin hand quilting the whole piece, stitching the top, batting and back layers together. Hand-quilting is an old tradition in this part of Nova Scotia, and continues on today with a few groups. I am so impressed by the dedication and creativity I have seen over the last few weeks with my students, and I cant wait to see the quilt complete!
Early on, we made a practice paper quilt to better understand drawing with shapes.
Over March Break, I ran a few sock-animal workshops at the Lunenburg Makery. We made sock-frogs, and a few kids went outside the box and made other animals like a sock-spider and a sock-diva! I was very impressed by how quickly the youngsters of Lunenburg County took up hand sewing.

These are a few paintings from a series I've been working on about two women living in the North and the South. It's been fun thinking about their extreme landscapes, what tools and vessels they might have around, how they collect water and get from place to place.
This is their world
The Woman of the North in her cave
The Woman of the South fetching water
The Woman of the South drinking water
