Textiles > Handweaving

Marshall Arts Fine Handwoven Textiles: Rilla Marshall

My current work investigates the potential vulnerability of our coastal communities due to development, erosion and potential sea level rise. Referencing the terrain and shorelines of Canada’s east coast, my work depicts the liminal spaces where ocean meets land and considers the forces that shape our landscape.

With a particular focus on islands, my shoreline mapping uses weaving, embroidery and crochet to explore the constant negotiation between land and ocean and the ways this negotiation shapes our personal and collective relationship with our cultural identity. With a focus on hand-weaving, I integrate traditional textile patterning into my work, enabling me to bring the lay of the land to a human scale through the intimacy of hand-worked textiles. Through my practice, I acknowledge and investigate the tension between nostalgia, the inevitability of change and the fickle notion of progress.

Textiles > silk PAINTING 

Silkwalker Originals: Heather Walker

I am now creating silk art, in the form or scarves and scenes, on a full time basis and feel so lucky to be able to do what I love and make it my home business, known as Silkwalker Originals.

Silk is a wonderful medium to work with, allowing dyes to flow gently over the surface, creating interesting designs and colour combinations. It has a soft sensuous hand, gentle drape and a beautiful sheen that radiates a true luminosity when painted. I consider my hand-painted silk scarves as pieces of wearable art and, once heat set, they are colourfast and hand washable.

I feel fortunate to live in Prince Edward Island. From childhood I was able to observe, enjoy and travel throughout 'Canada’s most beautiful province’. I use the striking images of its rolling hills and farmland, fishing villages and sandy beaches, as inspiration for my designs and colour combinations. My husband provides me with many of the photo images used in my paintings. I had the privilege to study under internationally recognized silk artist, Daniel Jean-Baptiste, who resides and works out of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean and Markham, Ontario. You will see his influence in my silk works, where his “Shimmering Light Water Technique” combines with my own painting style to create the illusion of light and movement.

Heather's work is available at the  Charlottetown Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and via Etsy.
