The Offering: Red Berries has been accepted to the “Island Wilds” visual arts show at the Ptarmigan Gallery on Pender Island, BC. It is a home island of Thuja Wood Art and its proprietor, Colin Hamilton, who creates frames for my lace. You can find out more about his amazing works from red cedar wood salvaged on the Gulf Islands’ beaches in his blog, facebook or instagram.
Another lace sculpture, Meganeura, was accepted to the ARTS 2020 juried show in Surrey Art Gallery, in Surrey, BC, Canada. Unfortunately, this space is still closed due to the pandemic restrictions, so the exhibition is for now hosted online by the Arts Council of Surrey.
Let’s enjoy these connections and share the creativity and positive energy!

Meganeura is an offering to Gaia and her transformative powers.
Meganeura, a dragonfly’s ancestor from the Carboniferous period, symbolizes transformation, survival, and incredible ability of Earth creatures to adapt and evolve with the environment. Watching dragonflies and knowing that their progenitor Meganeura lived 300 milion years ago, always fills me with awe and reverence for this planet and all life it carries.
This offering is a prayer for us, people of this Earth, to listen to Gaia, and learn from her wisdom… before it is too late.
This work is listed for sale in my Way of Lace shop on Etsy.
