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.
Another end of summer / beginning of fall image: apples
The watercolour painting group met for the first time back in the Arts Centre after the Summer Gallery closed its last show this past week.
I plucked three apples from an apple tree growing by the back ditch and painted those.
