Tangled in threads for 'Low Tide' bio picture
Me, by photographer Rachael Ashe
I was tangled in thread* by Vancouver artist and photographer Rachael Ashe, as part of her portrait series.
Rachael explores a variety of creative platforms through her blog Canvas to the Imagination.
I think I might use this image as my bio picture in the portfolio that will be displayed as a part of the 'Low Tide' exhibition. The exhibitions at the Crafts Council of BC (formerly Crafts Association) gallery always have an educational element. Artists/Craftspeople/Makers share information about their process, construction and techniques. Updating my blog has been excellent practice for writing about my work, and has given me ideas for preparing for my educational materials for the exhibition.
Now, with only a month left to go, the butterflies in my tummy are aflutter. I'll be spending many hours 'tangled in threads' from now till then.
*Thread: specifically DMC cotton 6-strand embroidery floss, pulled from skeins (for those of us who like to geek out over thread)
32 days to 'Low Tide'
