Updated Fall 2015

After 25 years teaching one semester at Alternative Scarborough Education 1, I retired in June. I will miss my engagement with the students, but am very happy to focus all my attention, all year long, to my artwork.

The intrepid Gibson Girls battled cold and rain as well as clouds of mosquitos and black flies in early July on our annual canoe trip. We had a wonderful time being outdoors together again, catching-up, reading, drawing, thinking and talking about art--and sharing bug dope! This year we also surprised each other with small environmental interventions which we later discussed, photographed and which were subsequently included in the exhibition Lost in the Woods – Ephemeral Creations at HIVE Gallery on Gabriola Island. (July 23 – August 3)
Many Thanks to our Western GG Karen for facilitating this project!

Chai Duncan and I co-curated Opening the Vault: Reframing the Collection for the Art Gallery of Northumberland in Cobourg which opened September 24 and runs until November 5.

New Work Botanica is a collection of historical-looking nature prints on handmade Japanese paper (Mura Koban). Seen as part of a larger herbarium, these fragile imprints are seemingly illuminated and preserved in solid, but arcane ‘books of study’ in the accompanying Botanica Folio. 2015 images reference familar/exotic trees identified near my studio in Mexico. I plan to continue this collection with plants identified at specific residencies in Canada and elsewhere.

November through March(?!) We will be heading to Mexico at the beginning of November. I look forward to the sunshine, warm weather, walks on the beach, cultivating my tropical garden and working in my large airy studio. Here is a link to images of the studio and work begun in 2014-15.
