Merry Christmas and Happy New Years

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!! I wish this to all of you (a little late on the Christmas part).  Hope you are all having a wonderful time with family and friends.

The weeks before Christmas I was busy designing a few new pieces, orders and a TV interview with Breakfast Television in Edmonton and an interview with Han TV (both thanks to the Alberta Craft Council) that will be posted at a later date.  As mentioned in my previous blog the Alberta Craft Council had asked me to be the Artist Spotlight for December and I am truly thank for for this opportunity as it helped me think out of the box and begin my Architectural Collection as you can see from some of my latest pieces above.  You can check out my interview on Breakfast Television below which shows some of my work at the Alberta Craft Council.

The Alberta Craft Council is a wonderful place for unique local made gifts with all price points and styles of Artwork.  It has various galleries to view as well while you are there.  A great place to select hand made gifts and support your local community.  Check it out soon it will amaze you!

Thanks to the Alberta Craft Council for their continued support and to Han TV and Breakfast Television for the wonderful opportunities the give to Artists throughout the year.

Have a wonderful New Years and year to come!  All my very best,  Valerie

Wanted to thank the Alberta Craft Council Gallery, (Edmonton, Alberta) for the Artist Spotlight for November. They have encouraged me over the past few years to grow and develop my designs. The opportunities they have given me are amazing and continue to push me to new levels of Wearable Art. Always a pleasure to work with on special projects such as the Opera Art Project. I am honoured to be part of this great community of Artists and staff. If you are in the area pop by for a visit and see the wonderful works by local Artists. A great place to buy that special gift for someone or even yourself.

Thank you for all you do!! 🙂 You are an amazing group who have helped many an Artist reach their goals and more. You can see more about the Alberta Craft Council Gallery at http://www.albertacraft.ab.ca
