This is awesome.  Very humorous spin on using "Natural" on products.  Sad, and true.

Disgusting.
Scientists are calling it "libricide." Seven of the nine world-famous Department of Fisheries and Oceans [DFO] libraries were closed by autumn 2013, ostensibly to digitize the materials and reduce costs. But sources told the independent Tyee in December that a fraction of the 600,000-volume collection had been digitized. Irreplaceable documents like the 50 volumes produced by the H.M.S. Challenger expedition of the late 1800s that discovered thou...

This one is the most incredibly delicate piping I've seen attached to a gingerbread house.  They're all wonderful.  The AT-AT is fab.

I posted a five minute #printmaking video on my #youtube channel; using plexiglass for #drypoint#akua intaglio pigments, and inking the plate in the a la poupee method - to get multiple colors in one pass through the press. Here's a link: http://youtu.be/kgBU4KAmWlY    More to come...

Story
Tagline
Printmaker, artist, homesteader-wannabe, wife, mom
Introduction
I am a printmaking artist based on the West Coast of Canada, with my cabinetmaker husband Dave, my artist mum Betty, our new "edition" Katja, and feline assistants, Murri & Mr. Stubbi (plus a flock of Muscovies and a couple of pigs). My artwork reflects upon the natural world and the irony of progress. I have a shop on Etsy featuring hand-crafted, original prints.

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking, baking & processing food from our garden (canning, lacto-fermentation, dehydrating, etc.), a fair amount of time with my daughter & husband, not nearly enough time in the studio, and precious little time exercising!

While we aren't really farmers, we aspire towards homesteading status, raising a fair portion of our own food (animals included), and doing some gleaning from the local environment.  Knowing where our food comes from and how our food is handled/treated is a big deal to us, plus we just really enjoy learning how to do stuff.  Our animals & garden have taught us so much, and enter our young daughter to teach us even more.

I've not done much art since the birth of our daughter, but eventually I'll be back at it.  I especially love teaching printmaking, because it's so versatile and interesting, and really easy to do a lot of it at home on your kitchen table.

I try to fill my life with learning and discovery, and I am lucky enough to have a life partner and little girl who not only help make that possible, they are just as interested, too!!
