I had a mini holiday this weekend in Jasper. The Mountains were extraordinary with all their
changing colours and fresh snow on the tops every morning. We even saw the cutest little black bear (ok I would not be saying he was cute if we were remotely close to him, but from a distance he was pretty darn cute!)
One morning we walked around Mount Edith Cavell which has the most beautiful glacier and glacial lake below it. There were hundreds of little icebergs floating around and they were amazing with all their different shapes and patterns.
Is it weird that i'm now feeling inspired by Icebergs?
A hot indian summer mixed with Uni. back in has doubled the amount of people in my little corner of this city and it's lovely to see everyone outside walking around and eating outside in one last attempt to salvage summer.
I'm going up to northern Alberta today for a little bit and I started thinking about the Canadian Arctic and their fascinating culture.
In the late 50's the artist James Houston went to the remote Inuit community of Cape Dorset in Nunavut and started a graphic arts workshop, the idea took off and today Cape Dorset is a huge hub for Inuit art.
One of their most prominent artists is Kenojuak Ashevak who started drawing in the late 1950's, her work has even been featured on postage stamps and coins in Canada.
