Who am I?
I am a self-taught, multi-media artist working from my home studio in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
I strive to create realistic pieces in both clay and paper, realizing that perfection in nature is rare.
For me, pinching little pots into fruits and vegetables is both meditative and gratifying even when the piece I have in mind takes on a shape of it's own and a pear becomes an avocado or an overly large apricot becomes a potato!
The manipulative nature of the beautiful crepe paper allows me to craft the stems, leaves and blossoms and, as in the clay, I can let loose and add tiny imperfections like bug bites or dry and withering leaf tips.
My work is inspired by fond memories of the abundant gardens of my Grandmother and my parents and the heaps of edibles I once grew in my own. There's something very comforting in self-preservation and the knowledge that we are so fortunate to have so much.
