The Harris Collective

Hi Folks, I have some great news. I applied to be apart of an art collective that is held at the Elora Center For the Art and I got in. Below is a link to the main page of the collective and you can see the other artist that are part of the gallery.

Roisin Gormley-Young is the Education Programme Coordinator at the center and helped me choose the work that I have submitted to the Harris Collective. I would just like to thank her for the help that she offered me.

My work will show with the collective for approx a year and I will also volunteer at the center during that time. This is very exciting for me and hopefully I will be able to gain more exposure as an artiest.

Konbit Shelter Project in Haiti

Below is from the project website, it is a great project and totally cool. I love this type of construction for homes and the artists and volunteers are making a positive different and change for the people of Haiti. Need I say more, please check out the link and support this project even though the project is at its completion.

Konbit Shelter is a sustainable building project with the objective of sharing knowledge and resources through the creation of homes and community spaces in post earthquake Haiti. We are a group of artists, builders, architects, and engineers, who, after the January 2010 earthquake, asked ourselves how we could use our skills and resources to directly assist another community in a time of crisis.

the studios i've had

I have had so many studios during my path as an artist. Everything from forest floors to sharing a beautiful space in an old building in Guelph. My homes have always offered great space as well, in the basements mind you but at least I had a space that allowed me explore my style and create new things. Now I find myself waiting to go on a trip to Hawaii, the big island, and volunteering and create art at a yoga center. The art shed is a place that will let me make new things during a new adventure.
