I love making textured papers and use those textured papers to make art!

As the 2023 Artist for the BC Summer Reading Club, I used textured papers to make the skins for the dinosaurs in the artworks for the BC Summer Reading Club.

Have you read the picture book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle?

In this free drop-in event, you can try different tools to make textures with paint on paper, and you can make artwork inspired by Eric Carle!
