Bucket List!

I'm super excited to announce:

Free motion stitching of downtown YXE architecture based on my cell phone images of 2017

Downtown was a place I had never bothered to venture. I had pegged the ‘Urban Jungle’ as cold and soul-less hubs constructed on lifeless concrete. I much prefer the flowers in the ditches, the river valley and the big prairie sky.

In 2016, I obtained a fantastic part time job with the Saskatoon Open Door Society on 3rd Avenue. I cringed at the idea of spending time downtown, but there I was. Suddenly I found myself with camera in hand, spending all my breaks and lunch hours wandering the streets. I discovered line, form, colour and a history of human spirit I had never known was there. I found a past and present of people’s energy and creativity.

As a landscape artist specialising in embroidery, my adventures in the downtown core compelled me to step out of my comfort zone and present my ‘discoveries’ as I felt them when I saw them for the first time. With colour and stitch, I hope you will enjoy my impressions of a variety of Saskatoon’s architecture in classic 'urban sketcher' style.

Once the show is up, I will post images of the pieces and tell you the stories that go with each.  : )
