When I came back to Canada a few weeks ago I thought it would be a good idea to take a screen printing class as some type of distraction. Keeping busy all the time has really helped me and has been a huge part of my healing process. I also feel really close to my mom when I am making physical stuff, because she was so creative. The other thing is that I use to screen print all the time but I had stopped for years & was felling a little rusty & thought it was a good idea to brush up on my skills. I am also a strong believer in being a life long student, so every few years a take some type of art class.
Having a larger space to work and experiment has made such a huge difference! I have been making larger prints & even started to experiment with a new colour palette!
I am having a little print show at the goods shop this Saturday I hope you guys will pop in to say Hi! The store is located at 201 Dalhousie St. in Ottawa in the Byward Market. I will be introducing my new prints and showing my textile line too!
