My second solo show at the Black Duck Gallery, was all about change and rebirth. As I became more outgoing and met other create people my life changed as did my art. Images were filled with shades of red, like lifeblood, and so I trusted my inner voice and followed where it led.
A group show of ten women at Mount Saint Vincent University. For this show I worked from photos from my mother's photo album, using images that revealed aspects of her life. I was comparing my life to hers, looking for what was passed on from generation to generation.
A solo show at Edgemere Gallery, Kentville, NS. Pieces spoke of feeling trapped, helpless and hopeless, and moved to offering possibilities and choices. At the time I struggled with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and had difficulty creating my art. I faced no longer being able to sew, and began exploring painting on fabric.
A solo show also at Edgemere Gallery, Kentville, NS. This show continued where the previous one had left off. It was about figuring out how to change direction, remove masks and leave my previous self behind.
A group show at Edgemere Gallery featuring myself and two other artists: Holly Carr and Janet Pope. My work took on a totally new direction, fusing tiny pieces of silk onto black fabric, and stitching patterns with silk and metallic threads. These pieces were small and required the viewer to get up close, evoking intimacy.
