This is the first of a series of embroidered sails. They are 12 feet (4m) tall. I'm hard at work on the second set but it's slow going. The series is about mariners' deep knowledge and connection to place.....photo E. A. Clarke

I love narrative and metaphor. I am interested in how one idea/image can link to or parallel another. I usually work in two dimensions and have explored my ambivalence around my German heritage, imagery of floods and recently, a series of embroidered maps. Currently I am working 3-D on embroidered sails.

Oh yes, about the frames....One day I was driving down a country road and saw a farm house with a free sign on a bunch of frames. The minute I saw the frames I knew i wanted to experiment with them...and I have been ever since..

I'll leave my Toronto report with a few notes about the conference lectures and presentations. I'd have to say that there certainly was a mosaic of diversity in the 3+ days at the Royal York Hotel. From Damian Skinner's stoic keynote series on the jewelry making/marketing universe in his musical New Zealand accent, through a series of very short "rapid-fire" presentations by a wide variety of artists, to the Professional Development Seminar that lashed the artists and their works to the…See More

There will be surprises around every corner, with photos, videos, SNAG conference coverage, and occasional interviews by rising artists!See More
"Regardless of concert, we could meet Saturday morning and walk into show together... I do want to show you the extra chasing tools at some point (hope I remember to pack them - note to self), in case you want any of them :) Here's my cell…"
"Im doing the standing room only on the dance floor at Santana. I stand all day at my work bench so standing through a concert is no biggie for me.
Otherwise, after the show or the next morning we could have breakfast and head into the jewelry…"

"So glad you'll be able to buzz through show... it is HUGE, I hear, so probably difficult to meet up there.
I was thinking about seeing Santana... maybe I'll bite the bullet and we could meet up there. What section are your…"
