So excited to announce new prod­ucts! You can now pur­chase some of my favourite designs on fab­ric — beau­ti­ful scarves and silk shirts by VIDA — Voices Col­lec­tion. VIDA is a global part­ner­ship of cre­ators, pair­ing design­ers from around the world with mak­ers in Pak­istan and India in accor­dance with high eth­i­cal stan­dards, to cre­ate orig­i­nal, beau­ti­ful prod­ucts. And the best part is that using part of pro­ceeds from the sales of the prod­ucts, VIDA cre­ates lit­er­acy pro­grams for the mak­ers, so that they have oppor­tu­ni­ties to learn read­ing, writ­ing and basic math that they would not oth­er­wise have. Could I be any more excited????

As artists, we are free to express our­selves in most coun­tries in the world. Never take for granted, this abil­ity to do so. It is inte­gral to the well-being of our soci­ety. The next time you take up a brush, an instru­ment, a pen… be reminded of how you can cross over and step boldly into the fray.

Update on Bill C-45 : Yes­ter­day (Dec 12, 2012), the Sen­ate debated for a 3rd Read­ing on Bill C-45 & the Hon Joseph Day asked to have the sec­tions of the Indian Act & the Nav­i­ga­ble Waters Pro­tec­tion Act removed. And asked for a fur­ther 6 hours to debate the issue and for it not to be voted on yet. We still have some time to attempt to influ­ence this process by con­tact­ing Sen­a­tors to express our non-consent with the legislation.

Haida Gwaii sits at the junc­ture of three tec­tonic plates, with a total of 10 fault lines. A bit like Mother Nature’s weak and tick­lish spot, if you will. In short, this area is as unsta­ble as the San Andreas fault, with a pow­er­ful oblique thrust that will put some kick in your behind. A tsunami would carry dirty crude oil a very long way.
