This is a series of three so far, all 12 x12 on gallery wrapped canvas. I’m not so crazy about the first one because I cut off my great grandmother’s head and it didn’t turn out very square – somehow it got stretched out. I don’t actually know everyone in these photos but they were all part of the Family Collection that cam down from my mother and father. These are from the paternal side of the family. So, they are mostly all relatives who did live nearby or in Montreal or greater Quebec. Some may be family friends or neighbors.
I did much better on the second one. I’m definitely happy with the combination of these old photos with my naturally dyed and printed fabric.
They might be getting better as I go along. I hope so because I plan on doing some more. Maybe quite a few more…
I have been involved with some form of art or craft for most of my life. I employ numerous forms of printmaking, a medium which has held my interest now for about 15 years. Currently, I paint, print and dye primarily on textiles and often combine it with one of my old loves, photography, to create my art.
