Awakening of Colours

So now that the never ending winter seems to be lessening it’s grip (it’s a glorious 4 degrees today! Or a balmy 39.2 for you Fahrenheit folks) I think it’s time to write about some super cute spring projects that I’ve been working on!

birdy

Lately, I have been working super hard in collaboration with DeSerres to promote their new line of yarn and knitting and crochet accessories. I posted about this kind of collaboration back in the fall as well when I did some tutorials for them. Well, I am back at it! Pretty soon I will have many more posts coming up with FREE patterns a plenty for all the cute things I have been making for them in order to promote their new spring yarn collection. Expect adorableness!

For now though, I will share with you this cute little birdy that I crocheted for their online flyer. This little guy made the rounds all over the internets in their banner ads for the March sale that just wrapped up. Did you see him?

Free patterns coming soon:

1) A knitting pattern for a delightful tea cosy for impressing your friends at your spring garden party.

2) A light and filmy spring poncho to knit for adding a splash of colour to your wardrobe on cool evenings.

3) A festive knit bunting to brighten up your home everyday or on special occasions.

4) A colourful spring neckerchief that knits up super fast.

5) A sweet as peaches and cream floral barrette to crochet for your hair.

 

I hope you are as excited as I am by the idea of crafting for SPRING! I really look forward to sharing these patterns with you!

READ ALL ABOUT IT!

The 15th edition of Headlight Anthology has arrived!

Recap and Preview

Been keeping busy since that last post in February. Very busy.

Here are some of the things that I have been up to…..
Well, March madness struck and I collaborated with some musicians on their Sensory Overload show.
Show poster
For this show me and some friends produced 7 sculptures of Rubiks cubes wrapped around sheep. The sheep ranged from 7 inches to 7 feet and fun was had by all involved in this project.
Hanging sheep

Sweet Mother Logic is very interesting band with a solid and professional sound. Every show they put on is much more than a concert, it is a full on theatrical maneuver! This event was incredible and diverse and jam packed with talented artists coming together for fun and drinks. I am privileged to have been a part if it.

April is Fibre Arts month!
I have been making sure to do my part to contribute. Initiatives, collaborations, publications and charitable donations are some of the ways that I am commemorating Fibre Arts Month!
Sent away two fine art postcards as an experiment to see how they would survive the mail and they made it to their destination! Sadly, I forgot to photograph them before they made the journey.
If you are in the NY area you should pop by The Brooklyn Art Library and see if you can spot me.
It is a great place to be.

Then it was the 20 x 20 show at CTCM.

This month I donated a few things to be sold to benefit the Centre Textiles Contemporain de Montreal at their 20th Anniversary party and fundraiser, 20 x 20. It was a huge success and tons of fun. $8 000 have been raised so far! The exhibition will be up until April 30th.

Coming soon:
Mail Me Something Book (June)
The postcards sent out to the Mail Me Something postcard show at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York are not only on display they are also in a book!

Order Now!

High Chroma Picnic (dates TBA)
The sheep and I will be going for a walk in the park. Fun and photos, live music and food. Something you have to see to believe.

Too Cool For Art School! Art and Science Fair (May 8th)
Taking Family Portrait on the road! On May 8th I will be in Toronto presenting my work in cyanotype at the Harbourfront Center.
For more information on this event click HERE.

Erronious Zones (dates TBA)
This exhibit will be an interdisciplinary presentation of work that addresses the many ways in which the body is ‘mistaken’. When and where this happens you will find Simulacra, my hand/gloves.

….. and be sure that I have at least a 1/2 dozen other plates in the air. The updates to come promise action, adventure, drama, romance and loads of art.
