Dear Diary, Last week on our road trip, Katherine and I swung by Laurie Swim’s Lunenburg art Gallery. I had met Laurie when she came to our third Nova Scotia Fibre arts Festival. She generously took time out of her day and had a little studio visit with me, showing me her techniques , some of her work, and what she had in the works. I always find visiting another artist inspiring. Laurie is the author of three books about art Quilting and runs a gallery in Lunenburg Nova Scotia. She is planning a workshop on her medium for 2012 . If you are interested contact her through her website.
It is always interesting to see how another artist works, her process and the ideas she has rolling around in her head. We had a lovely visit. If you are in Lunenburg, I encourage you to drop by, pick up some of her gorgeous art cards (I did) and use them yo write someone you love. Mine are going to my uncle in Nfld and my Aunt on Long Island, NY.
