Emily Carr was an independent woman and a Westerner who gained prominence at a time when women artists were not recognized internationally. Carr lived in a time when opportunities for women were limited and her trips into the forest were seen as somewhat eccentric and inappropriate by her peers. She nevertheless gained a significant reputation, as a painter, writer, potter, illustrator, and textile artist and was a cultural pioneer in Victoria where she lived for many years. She was not able to give up her day job and managed a boarding house for many years. Through it all, Emily Carr spoke her mind. These works of mine are my tribute to Emily, they are all 16" by 20" approx. and are done using shards of stained glass and painted grout. Enjoy! and thank-you for looking.
