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.
Went for a walk at 7 pm along the left bank of the Seine, crossed over the Alexander III bridge, back along the right bank and thence back across the Pont des Invalides. As we were loitering on the lovely Pont A. III, the Eiffel Tour in the distance lit up, a magical sight.
