TV Interview | Changing Landscapes

Last October I was approached to appear in a segment of Changing Landscapes – episode 5, a TV show that is airing this week on Shaw Cable.  I was honored to have Dominik Modinski come to my studio and interview me for the Gabriola Island – Isle of the Arts segment.

Airing this week September 5-11, 2016

Quoting from Scott Wilson’s Blog on how I was chosen, he writes:

“Flipping through the Studio Tour guide booklet he (Dominik Modlinski) immediately gravitated to her work, he mentioned the brush work and light in her paintings and was quite eager to see her work up close and interview her.”

 

Changing Landscapes airs on Shaw TV Chanel 4

Art Making Process

Welcome to My Sculpture Process Blog!

Here you will find images and videos of the behind-the-scenes in my art studio. Over time, I have documented processes I will be sharing with you.

This video was created using iMovie and an Olympus Tough mounted on a tripod. I edited 8 hours of filming into a 2 minute film. The editing took me about 6-7 hours as I had never used any kind of video making software. Overall, I am quite happy with the result.

If you have any questions about the process, please leave a comment.
