I just found out that I received a grant from the Ontario Arts Council to create my jacquard woven shroud series entitled Re-collection. Each shroud will depict the face of a young girl or woman killed by a sexual predator.I will be collaborating with Dr. Simon Lapierre as well as with other new technology artists. This collection of shrouds will focus on victims in Ontario, and over the years, I would like to create a set for each province. If you would like to recommend an individual for inclusion in this project, please contact me at This project will take a couple of years to complete.

In the meantime, I continue to
collaborate with Erin Lewis on
integrating new technologies into weaving.
You can go to the Facebook page for the
collaboration to see how it is progressing.
So far I've woven fibre optics, linen
with paper. Next on to wire. Erin is
working on the tech details. She recently
discovered that she was accepted into the PhD program at Boras University in Sweden.
I will be sorry not to have her around.
Maybe I'll have to go to Sweden?
