Artist Spotlight: Darcy Hunter

Darcy Hunter is a fibre and quilt artist based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. She is unique among the artists to have been featured in this space because her paintbrush is actually a sewing machine.

Her original art landscape wall hangings are visually striking but often reflect the subtlety that can be found in nature.

She came across to me as a very genuine, kind person. We also both got distracted easily and went down a few rabbit holes that didn’t make it into the below conversation (like a lengthy chat about the Rocky mountains where I offered her travel tips if she ever travels to them).

But, enough about those rascally rabbit holes, I hope you enjoy the our chat.

Artist Spotlight: Alyson Borycki

Alyson Borycki is a Toronto-based artist transplanted from the heart of the Canadian prairies in Saskatchewan.

Our recent chat was filled with lots of laughs and plenty of insights from this super-talented contemporary abstract artist, who also has a passion for her house plants (and who wasn’t shy about sharing this fact).

I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.

Artist Spotlight: Erinn Evans

Erinn Evans lives in a suburb next door to mine outside of Edmonton, Alberta. That said, I’d never met her before our recent Skype chat.

A mother of two teenage sons, she is finds time for her art while they’re at school.

During our chat, she had some thoughts and insights that I loved and I hope you do, too, as you get to know her a little better.
