Now on at the Foyer Gallery
January 30 – March 25
Describe this exhibit. What was your creative stimulus for this particular series?
This exhibit is a collection of close-ups from nature and man-made subjects. I find it very thought-provoking to look at a subject in close proximity because it opens up a whole new way of observing and thinking about it.
What’s your background? How long have you been doing art?
My background is that I am a Speech Pathologist by profession. In my capacity as a Speech Pathologist, I have spent some time travelling to do my work in a number of countries. During these travels, over the last thirty years I was drawn to photography. (read more)
‘Mad Potters’ Tea Party‘
CLAYTIVITY in Wonderland – Ceramics
Describe this exhibit. What was your creative stimulation for this particular series?
As the owner of ‘CLAYTIVITY’, I visit schools, community groups, do workshops, parties, private classes, and fire pottery for others in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and the Sea-to-Sky. I want to include the kind of projects that students can make – children and adults, of all levels of experience.
What kind of artist do you consider yourself? Why?
