I was inspired by a tutorial that I saw on Christopher & Tia to make Christmas wreath ornaments from yarn. I looked everywhere to find the styrofoam wreaths, though, and could not locate them anywhere. So I got creative with pipecleaner to make it work... and it did!
A couple of my closest buds will be getting these as gifts this year!
I had the opportunity this past weekend to photograph the From Farms to Forks fundraiser event for Growing Chefs, a non profit organization in Vancouver that facilitates chefs, growers, families, and community groups coming together to support urban agriculture.
It was a really fun event to photograph and the food was incredible! My favourite was the savoury sweet cheesecake with cracked pepper, strawberry, and blue cheese.

Hot Art Wet City is a combination pop up gallery and blog that features an interview with a new artist every week. The idea is to challenge the rumour that all creative folk are fleeing our wet city for the bigger pastures of New York, Toronto, and Montreal.
This week Chris Bentzen, curator and creator of HAWC, met me at my place to interview me about what I do. The video can be seen here.
