The last decade (or two) have been sort of wild, with so many changes and challenges. Our eyes have been opened in so many new ways. But now it’s 2020, and I’m feeling like there’s a sense out there that we can take what we’ve learned and move forward towards positive change for us all. Onwards and upwards!
The end of the thaw, new beginnings. Energy and Growth. A time to rediscover wonder. That’s what spring is to me. Even in the cold, grey days after the snow is gone, before things start to green up again, that’s when growth is happening. It is waiting, and it’s coming!
This pendant was originally created in 1997 as part of my first ‘Arctic Landscapes’ show in Iqaluit. After 3 years of teaching full time I had decided that it was time to start my own business and I saw the show as an opportunity to express to my students and the community my appreciation for what had been shared with me.
In 2000 I felt that it was time to put down some roots and feeling the pull of the sea, I moved back East, settling on Nova Scotia’s scenic South Shore. In 2008 Seal Rock Studio was created.
