My friend Jean-Pierre, who has appeared in these pages many times before, sent me this lovely iridescent thread that he found in one of the temple markets in Kyoto. I'll have to do something amazing with it.
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.
