Studio reno completed
After a year and a half of working shoulder to shoulder with my husband Jock Munro, my studio is a fresh and healthy workspace complete with running water! The second floor serves as a beautiful gallery and apartment to welcome visitors. I would love to show it off if you are in the area.
Canada C3 is a legacy project marking 150th years since confederation, connecting Canadians on a 150 day expedition exploring our vast coastline from Toronto through the Northwest passage to Victoria. It is designed to inspire a deeper understanding of our land, our peoples and our country. I was honoured to be invited aboard Leg 8, sailing from Qikiqtarjuaq to Mittimatalik and asked to respond to this profoundly moving experience with my work. For a video recap of Leg 8 see my Ceramic Artist FB page or click here . I am planning opportunities to discuss this experience in the coming weeks. For details, please be in touch.
