Creating Futures

Entwined 1 and Entwined 3, pieces made earlier in my career, were recently in a 4 month long exhibition at the City of Waterloo Museum. The 29 juried pieces then travelled to 10 Ontario cities, touring until May 2015 when they were auctioned. The exhibition benefited the Stephen Lewis Foundation's Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, supporting grandmothers and grandchildren affected by AIDS.
