Maintenant en Français

A new French translation option is now included on the website of Dr. Ellissa Crete, Qi in Motion. It’s a great learning opportunity to research methods and solve website issues for my design clients. In this case, I got to research avenues of language translation and decided that the PolyLang WP plugin was the best choice. (See more of my websites based in SE BC.)

I am pleased to announce that another waterscape has been chosen to hang in City Hall in Nelson BC. This great civic initiative is organised by Nelson’s Cultural Development Officer, Joy Barrett. The Calligraphy of Waves was selected by committee and will be on display at City Hall for one year starting in April 2018.

Touchstones Nelson street installation

My digital image from the BC mining town of Sandon was selected for the Vernon Street service door, gracing a busy Nelson street corner. I was pleased to hear feedback from some observant people that it gives the façade a “trompe l’oeil” effect. I was lucky to catch Murray from SpeedPro Signs practising his signage skills…

Thanks to Rod Taylor, Curator of Touchstones Nelson.

Language of Drawing

Language of Drawing was a travelling exhibition by Columbia Basin Artists, curated by Helen Sebelius. Helen selected three pieces from my series, Triangulating Infinity, and two drawings of Hume Creek. The exhibition was shown in 2012 at the Kootenay Gallery in Castlegar BC and at Gallery 2 in Grand Forks BC.
