The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

Spotlight on Elora-Fergus Studio Tour continues - Metal and Stain Glass Artists

This is the work of Vicky Beverstein, a stained glass artisan on the Elora-Fergus Studio Tour.  Vicky is a self taught stained glass artist, with thirty years of experience.  Her studio, Glass N'Stuff is located in Elora, stop by her studio to see one of a kind creations.

The above two photographs are the work of the artisan duo, John and Heather Zondervan, of Metallic Evolution.  They come from a diverse design background, from custom wood furniture to costuming.  Strongly influenced by the Bauhaus and Deco design movements, this husband and wife team first began translating their ideas into steel in 1996, and since then have developed a broad range of metal products for the home.  They are both involved in all aspects of the design and fabrication process.  All work is done by hand, ensuring individual attention to each piece as well as making each item unique.

A reminder that my free draw prize continues, to enter, make a comment with your name and it will be placed in a draw for a piece of my work on Oct. 5th, at the end of the Elora-Fergus Studio Tour.
