65/100 Thank you @sandeepjohalart for the hugs and the new forms and colours to play with. I could have done this all day! . . . #100daysofplayingwithstones
Spent some time with these lovelies today. Nature is crazy amazing. . . . . #inspiration
Holding Space III is up @craftcouncilbc These guys were so fun to play with and so hard to photograph so I’m sharing a video. You kind of need to see them in person.
Summer break palette. The quick+slow pace and never ending swimming. Hoping this is the year that I move more gracefully through looser structure and a flow that is not my own.
Went way out of my comfort zone today and never felt more like a Canadian on Canada Day 🇨🇦 I chatted with so many diverse people from all over the world while working hard to climb up to this view. I’m working with Oblique Strategies and today I got “discard an axiom.” Seemed fitting to discard the version of myself that is not a hiker. Feeling courageous. I may discard more axioms in future. . . . #happycanadaday #grousemountain #grousegrind #discardingaxioms
How amazing is this? Another reason to love Fibonacci. . . . #Repost @designmilk with @get_repost ・・・ This ‘Square Wave’ #sculpture by @ivanblacksculpture is blowing our minds. It’s based on the Fibonacci, the basic structure that makes up every living thing. \\\ on view at the @aliceblackgallery until July 7th

All the colours of my bathroom.
While I was cheering on team Brazil at the micro-footie soccer tournament today, my niece and sister-in-law took some time to visit the Process exhibition at @albertacraftcouncil where I have some work. Nice to see the work installed and these lovely faces who I miss. The show is up at C-Space for a few more weeks if you are in Calgary. . . . #yvrartist #vancouverweavers #weaversofinstagram #guildofcanadianweavers #craftcouncilofbc #ccbc
