Happiness, 2017

This sculpture is made from milkweed fibers, yellow dogwood (from my brother-in-law's garden), and a branch I found in my garden.

Harvesting milkweeds

Harvested some milkweeds on the way back from the mailbox yesterday evening. Off to collect some more for paper making!

Papermaking with Plants at Langstaff S.S.

As part of my Artist In Education 2015-2016 program with the Ontario Arts Council, students made paper from plants to use in their lanterns. Students made paper from milkweeds, cedar, and daffodil fibers.

Fall Forest Festival Celebrate Art In the Forest

I'm currently harvesting various fibres for paper making, and making new sculptures for the upcoming York Region's Fall Forest Festival Celebrate Art In the Forest. This show aligns beautifully with my works — creating organic light sculptures with natural materials.

Aside from displaying my light sculptures, I will also do a demo on the process of making a light sculpture. More detail of the festival can be found here.

Artist In Education 2014-2015

I like to take a moment to thank the Ontario Arts Council for letting me be apart of the Artist-In-Education program during the school year 2014-2015. During this school year I was at Danforth C.T.I., and Humberside C.I. demonstrating the techniques used to create a paper light sculpture. It has been a wonderful learning experience not only for the students, but also for myself as well!
