Safety Requirements

Hello! I'm a beginner jewelry maker currently focused on sterling silver/ copper wire wrapped jewelry. This is mostly just a hobby, but I'd eventually like to make enough pieces to sell in local crafts fairs or potentially online.

As a beginning artist, how does one show that I'm using safe materials?…See More

there's beauty in recycling

"Return" - new sculpture made with amazing artists Jeff de Boer and Cory Barkman, commissioned by Alberta Depot, includes a large amount of recycled materials. The piece will be going on tour all over Alberta to promote recycling beverage containers.

See more about the sculpture…

Meet The Herd!

Bluerock Gallery July 16/17 - I will have chased pictures - equine, abstract, maple leaves... Bluerock has so much gorgeous artwork to lust over - and it's close to two meaderies, makes for a fabulous day-trip! Hope to see you there.
