Since starting my office manager job at the end of last June, I’ve been struggling with a regular studio routine (it doesn’t help that all shows are being postponed indefinitely or changed to an online structure). I saw a call to participate in a creative pen pal exchange hosted by Be Whimsi Art Loft and decided to join to give me an excuse, and a reason, to make some new pieces!
In the two week exercise, my partner and I ended up creating a thread of 10 pieces (5 pieces each) with the generic theme of Wayfinding. Some of my pieces started and ended in unexpected ways, but the knit chakra heart Alternative methods to happiness is my favourite; it’s filled with sand and I use it as a soft stress ball while working from home!
All of the pieces from the third round of Creative Pen Pals can be found here: https://bewhimsiartloft.ca/creative-conversations/creative-pen-pals-exhibit3/
