By Kate Knowles Let Albertan artist Darcy Gusse Edinga draw you into the delicate, shimmering world of hand-painted Silk Concepts scarves and silk art compositions. From a young age, she knew she was destined to be an artist. Inspired by textiles at an early age, she is still happiest when creating her hand-painted silk wearable art scarves or her unique silk art compositions. Darcy is a graduate of the University of Alberta’s Clothing and Textiles program.
Written by Kate Knowles What can you take back with you from your travels? Do you remember the warmth of that square of mossy stone where you sat to rest your feet, and where you enjoyed a sudden scatter of birds against the azure-blue sky? Do you remember that rosy sunset gilding the water as you traveled along the coast with a group of friends? Artist Naomi Joy Yamamoto evokes the spirit of adventurous travel in her gorgeous, colourful leatherwork.
