Huntsville Home

This past June “Huntsville Home” was accepted into the 2017, 38th Annual Insights Juried Exhibition of Fine Arts, organized by the Elora Arts Council and displayed at Wellington County Museum and Archives until Labour Day Weekend. It was a great honour to have my woolen painting selected for such an event. 159 pieces of artwork were submitted and only 60 chosen. I am grateful for the experience.

“Huntsville Home” is a woolen landscape where I knit and felted each piece, putting them together like a jigsaw puzzle. The moss covered tree is made using Italian ‘Grosso’ wool, a thick, chunky naturally coloured wool that looks like it was taken right off the sheep, cleaned and carded. My colour palette is neutral browns and taupes with shots of bright greens.

I was hiking in a forest in Huntsville and came across this hollowed out tree. The hole in the bottom looked just like a little doorway that you imagine in a fairytale book. Something must live there, but what? I will leave you to ponder this.

 

“Ubiquitous Green” 2015 At The Mattamy National Cycling Centre

The Fine Art Society of Milton (FASM), of which I am a member, constructed a mural as a permanent art installation for The Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, Ontario. The mural, made up of  original artwork from 80 artists, was unveiled just prior to the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. I had the privilege of participating in this installation by submitting “Ubiquitous Green”, a felted woolen landscape. It is on the top row, third one in from the left. It was an amazing experience and one that I will cherish.

Upon completion, I knew that I was onto something…and thus began my delight of felted woolen paintings.
