The process of creating is always an interesting one at most. I have been able to create a number of new pieces that I find have had great visual success. It is an experiment that I was able to exercise at a wonderful textile co-op studio in downtown Toronto. It was four of us and we were able to create a number of different pieces to which I chose to execute them onto linen. This was a new medium for me as I usually work with silk. Nonetheless, it was amazing the results, although the effects are not as stark as it would be if I had used silk but there is still a very organic and warm feeling to the colours that really give them a unique lustre.
