“Floating In The Wind” reflects my love of repeating patterns and my need to both create order from chaos and make art that provides a peaceful and meditative experience, where I can lose myself in the creative process. This is one of a collective body of work called “In The Wind”, a series of visual artworks, along with an accompanying poem, that are based on a recurring dream I have where I rise from the ground and fly over land. The dragonflies depicted in this piece are an integral part of the Manitoba landscape and symbolize change through self-discovery and the opening of oneself to living freely and in the moment, embracing authentic self. The overall design is also a repeating pattern when printed in multiple panels alongside each other, or digitized, as I did with this one to create wallpaper. This relief print was created by hand printing my carved linocut design onto paper. Some are pre-coloured with acrylic inks, some are on rice paper. Relief printing is an ancient printing technique where the artist carves a design into a solid block of material, in this case linoleum. Once the design is complete, the block is inked with a roller. Paper is then placed over the block and hand rubbed or run through a manual press to transfer the inked design onto the paper.
