21 May 2018:

Canadian Postcard Project 2018 collaboration with Holly and Karen Miranda Augustine

The Canadian Postcard Project (next to my birthday) is my favourite time of the year! Organizer Mallory Diaczun invites Canadian artists to participate in an art postcard exchange with students, and this year, hands down, I've pretty much enjoyed it the most.

Karen's original work and Holly's artwork in response

Special needs students from Norwell District Seconday School chose an artist's image that they liked and created an art postcard in response.

20-year-old Holly chose mine, and when I received it in the mail, it just made me feel so happy. I loved her colours and the piece felt like fun, so I added beadwork and stencils to her postcard to express how her postcard made me feel.
