Thank you to everyone who participated!
The artist who created the wall-hanging featured was none other than Gjoa Haven’s Helen Kaloon! Helen gets her designs of seal and fish mermaids, geese flying with children, and seals with children riding on them from her imagination.
She states: “My scissors are my pencil.” And she means this literally! Helen doesn’t sketch the figures in her wall-hangings before cutting them: instead, she lets her scissors glide through the felt to create the creatures and characters she imagines. You can find out more about Helen here.
Congratulations to Doris Britski from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan for being the winner of our November Guess-the-Artist Contest! A major thank you goes out to Arctic Closet who graciously donated this month’s prize!! (http://www.facebook.com/arctic.closet)
