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????

Today, I joined some bril­liant artists and incred­i­ble staff at Canada House Gallery.

Ear­lier this year, I was invited along with 36 artists in Alberta and Saskatchewan to par­tic­i­pate in the inau­gural “Cen­ovus Art Com­pe­ti­tion”. The focus of the com­pe­ti­tion was to iden­tify “under-recognized artists” in Alberta and Saskatchewan, in the form of a com­pe­ti­tion. Nor­mally, I don’t go in for these sort of things, but I liked what the com­pany was propos­ing to do.

Now, it’s time to take some time and cel­e­brate the suc­cess of this won­der­ful show. I’m usu­ally not one to pause long enough to catch my breath.…but catch­ing my breath was exactly what I did yes­ter­day when I saw the works all hung together. As artists, we need to take a moment and cel­e­brate the accom­plish­ments along the way. It is no mean feat, tak­ing hours of man­power, years of train­ing, eons of prac­tice and a lit­tle magic!
