Lucky Winner

I recently sent out an annoucement about all my upcoming exhibitions. It was a long annoucement so I asked anyone that made it to the end to let me know that they did and I would give a print to one lucky winner.

And the winner is Richard Patten of Ottawa. I will send him a print this week. Congrats.

The Legend of the Red Thread

This is a collaborative piece.  It is a book that visually represents the legend of the Red Thread.
"An invisible red thread connects those destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or  circumstances. The thread may  stretch or tangle, but never  break."  - Ancient Chinese Proverb

We created a book that has a red thread moving throughout it. I created the prints in the book by inking a string rather than a block. It was a challenge but as you can see from the picture below it looks really great. Cathryn Miller  is the other artist that I worked with on the project, she created the amazing book and the box that the book is contained in.
