Another Inspiring Artist


As I’m on a roll with introducing wonderful artists, another one I’d like to share is Alice Vander Vennen from Cobourg, Ontario.  For those of you who might be interested in learning how to incorporate natural and found materials into your own practice, she is an inspiring artist and teacher – with workshops coming up this summer!  I love her work – she weaves together textiles, clay, stones, found objects, wire, metal and branches, amongst other things, into her abstract pieces.  I’m not sure she would classify herself as an environmental artist, but in so many ways she integrates ideas around nature, culture, and sustainability through her choice and use of materials.  (I’m including one of her pieces here, which I don’t think she’ll mind as I just bought it!)  Please check out her website at:
