An anniversary has passed and I didn't realize it. I am now in my fifth year of work on the Codex Canadensis series. I took my first stitch on March 2, 2012. Thanks to everyone who has been so encouraging and supportive along the way! And Louis Nicolas, I hope I haven't disappointed you.
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.
