Jean Cockburn retired from her professional career as an academic librarian in 2008 to become a textile artist living on Denman Island, British Columbia. She draws, quilts, embroiders, knits and crochets, makes wearable art, weaves baskets, dyes fabric, and paints watercolours. Her work has been exhibited locally in juried and group shows on Denman Island, in Courtenay, Comox, and Duncan on Vancouver Island, in West Vancouver, and across Canada with the Surface Design Association.
Now is this tacky or is it wonderful? I cannot decide. The phenomenon occurs on two bridges over the Seine, and we walked over both of them. I think this was taken on the Pont de l'Archeveche (the other padlock decorated/littered bridge is Pont des Arts).
