In June I undertook an artist residency at the Icelandic Textile Centre in Blönduós. I worked mostly in the contemporary lab and did 22 projects in felting, 3d printing, digital knitting, tufting, and embroidery. Outside of the lab I experimented with cyanotype printing on fabric - I was curious how different the sun exposures would be in the north Atlantic, which is pretty much 24 hours a day sun. I will be creating a new page on my web site about this project. 
I was invited to be Guest Artist and Juror for the Ekphrasis Exhibition at Metchosin ArtPod from September 30-November 20, 2023. My work was used for the cover illustration and we had a great turn out for the online artist talk. There are so many talented artists in this area! 
Finally getting artists coming to the Studio H Canada International Art Residency program after so many delays and interruptions because of Covid. Check out the new artists on the website here
I am leading a major project for Xchanges Gallery and Studios in collaboration with Victoria Arts Council and Flux Media Gallery supported by the Canada Council, Digital Now stream. The Physical Intersections Digital Collaborations project brings together 10 multidiscipline/interdisciplinary artists and 3 curators in a collaborative project over 16 months.  Check out the Phase 1 Projects - Lichens, Camber, and Nowhere Anywhere Portal Passage.
My work is being shown in a new international exhibition "You & I" curated by Aleks Ka Kusowska, (Poland/Ireland). See the website here.

I will be participating in a virtual international art residency at PROYECTO´ACE in Buenos Aires starting in February. This residency is so exciting because I will be creating new work and collaborating with other international artists. During Covid this is more important than ever. The theme for this cohort is Frontier. 
On January 21st I co-created and facilitated Moving Forms: Life Drawing with Dancers, drawing moving bodies. a collaborative workshop with choreographer Constance Cooke and Xchanges Gallery and Studios as part of Dance Days 2021. Over 55 people registered and with 49 attending! we spent two hours working through an experimental approach to drawing moving bodies - an exhilarating challenge. Our research is leading Constance and I into new territory and we will be launching a new collaborative project with iterative installations in 'analogue' and online space simultaneously.

December 2020
I launched Xchanges Gallery and Studios very first online exhibitions in December and the reception was wonderful with 75 people registering and over 65 people in attendance. The Covid 19 LIFE: Virtual Drawing in the Time of Covid has over 135 drawings by artists from Canada and the United States. You can check it out here.  The second online exhibition launched simultaneously was the Xchanges annual members' exhibition - this year's theme was A Moment in Time, very appropriate given our current realities.
