Created at the Canyon / by Helen O'Connor

Created at the Canyon 
This past summer I was one of six local artists selected to create original works of art inspired by the culturally and ecologically significant landscape of Miles Canyon and the Yukon River. This project was sponsored by the Yukon Conservation Society.

Featured artists:
Shirley Adamson – painting, storytelling
Gorellaume – ink drawing
Anne Hoerber – encaustic (wax) painting
Françoise La Roche – tapestry/rug hooking
Helen O’Connor – paper making and sculpture
Sheelah Tolton – painting and sketch

 

 I made a sized cotton rag paper with inclusions of local willow leaves for on-site watercolour painting.
