Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver

It is a joy to be back in Vancouver again. Flying across the country is not such a big deal, when I love so much coming here. After seeing my work on banners and busses across the city last November as the feature artist for the Circle Craft show, I feel particularly loved by Vancouver.

This 18kyg ring in the Script Series, inspired by my travels through India, has often been coveted. I finally decided to release it publicly. I brought just 3 of them with me.

I have only a few one-of-a-kind Onefooter earrings with me. Come early if you want a pair!

This weekend and next, I will be back at the Harmony Arts Festival with its varied events. Such a great event! I love its vibrant and varied expressions and celebrations of art.

The Harmony Arts Festival is held at Ambleside Park on West Vancouver’s shore. It is a gorgeous location, and the quality of craftsmanship represented is very high. I am excited to be back. And I am bringing some things that might interest you. Come on out and see me, Vancouver! HAF_Logo640

Time Away

If my social media accounts have been quiet of late, and I have been slow to respond to e-mails, it is because I unplugged at a retreat centre for a while. I spent almost two weeks at wonderful Dorje Denma Ling in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.

This rural retreat centre may be rustic, but it is also splendid!

The retreat was attended by roughly 50 people from international destinations.

It is not fancy, but I love it there, and have been coming here for over twenty years.

The place is fairly small, but swells in the summer with larger programs

To create a space for the program's meals, a tent was erected on the lawn. The grass coming through the floorboards made endless fodder for the eye

Being on retreat opens the senses – everything becomes quite beautiful. Or maybe it always is, but we miss it in the speed of daily life.
