In my art practice I am drawn to available and craft materials. I also take delight in making useful, everyday things like bread, soap, sweaters, quilts. Not surprising some of my favorite schools of art include the Russian Constructivists, The Arts and Crafts Movement, and all that interesting decorative stuff Women did in the 19th and early 20th Century.
I moved to Saskatchewan from Ontario in 1984 and found a climate very encouraging for artists - I think it's a memory of pioneering and homesteading - a sense if you don't do it, it won't get done coupled with a conviction you can do anything you really want to do.
