Last week was my final few days of working from The Leeway Studio at Emily Carr, and I spent the time making one last series of prints. I reused some of the stencils I created for a previous batch of prints to make these ones.

I chose the colours from the left over inks and made up the composition as I went along. I love the crazy colours and busy layered patterns of this series. It may be my favourite so far.

I started cutting up the prints and making more of the pyramids. When these are done I’ll have about one hundred and thirty of them, which will make for an interesting installation.

I’m in my final two weeks of the Artist Residency at The Leeway Studio, and I’m working on finishing a large group of tiny paper sculptures. Two weeks ago I shared some of the process of making the screen prints for these, and now here is the paper transformed into three dimensions.

There will be sixty of them by the time I am done, to go with the thirty-ish I made from the previous batch of prints.

Here are the two batches together. I’m hoping to make one more series of screen prints before the end of my residency, and also transform them into one more batch of sculptures.

My work on the paper cut patterns has almost ground to a halt as I work on a whole bunch of other things. The braided rug has taken over my brain and that’s what I’ve been spending more time on lately.

The paper cut pieces pictured here has been in progress for a few weeks. It is so tiny and intricate that it is not enjoyable to work on, but it’s my own fault for not making the template a big larger to begin with.

It’s a beautiful design though, and eventually I will see it through to the end.
