I'll be packing up and traveling to Toronto this weekend for the fabulous INLAND show at Queen Richmond Centre West. I'm excited to introduce my "everyday art pieces" to discerning Torontonians. If you are in the area, I would love for you to stop by my display and say hello!

INLAND is a curated shopping event and retail showroom featuring exclusively Canadian fashion, apparel, and accessory brands. There you can meet and shop directly from designers at the spring and fall pop-ups.

Exhibition Dates:
April 30th - June 6th, 2017

Please join me for the opening reception of
"BRANCHWORKS" on Sunday, April 30th from 2-4pm!

“Branchworks” features new pieces from a family trio of artists. The works presented here explore the aesthetics of fractal growth patterns and negative spaces seen within tree branches. The use of overlapping lines, contours, and shadow become a recurring motif in each of the artists' work as they draw inspiration from the complexity, beauty, and illusionistic qualities of humble branches. Each artist delves into their preferred medium, ranging from metalworking, embroidery, and pyrography. This range of approaches highlights the diversity in contemporary craft today.

Lawrence Cook
Lawrence has been actively involved in Ottawa's photographic community for more than 30 years. He graduated from the Algonquin College's Advertising & Graphic Design program. His enduring involvement in photography is due to the positive challenges it brings to his life, keeping him intellectually active and creative. Lawrence has exhibited his photography and artwork locally in Ottawa's solo and group exhibitions. Lawrence is currently a full-time staff photographer with the National Gallery of Canada.

Maureen Ballagh
Maureen is a visual artist from Ottawa, Ontario and graduated from Algonquin College’s Fine Arts & Craft program. In her artwork, she combines textile techniques such as felting, dyeing, embroidery and knitting to create intricate and cohesive works of sculpture. Her works have been exhibited by public and commercial galleries throughout Canada. For over 15 years, Maureen has been an active mentor and instructor in Ottawa's fibre arts community.

Chayle Cook
Chayle is an artist goldsmith from Ottawa, Ontario. She completed her BFA at NSCAD University specializing in jewellery, printmaking, and book arts.
