Lovely coastal textile art

Yesterday, I stumbled onto Fog and Swell. It’s really hard to find inspirational pictures and art from Canadian coastal areas because they always get lost in lists of thousands of tropical locals. Tropical locations are lovely, but temperate locations are what I grew up with and learned about, so they tend to attract me the most. And, we Canadians have some amazing coasts and coastal critters.

 Kristy (of Fog and Swell) is a lucky bugger because she lives on beautiful Vancouver Island and has an amazing coastal location for inspiration. She has a number of lovely pieces (I’d buy them all, if I could sneak them into my budget). I’m seriously considering saving up to buy one of her wall hangings. And her urchins, oh her urchins – I love them so much! [Edit: Yeah, I bought it!]

    thanks for your post – i totally agree with you about sometimes temperate coast goodness being lost amongst more tropical dreams, although definitely here on the island there are a lot of artists inspired by the Canadian coast. so glad the urchin found a good home with you!
