Roxsane Tiernan is an award winning British Columbia artist, an international traveler and educator. She soaks up local color, customs and cultural influences. These cross-cultural experiences stimulate her imagination and creativity. This along with her love of nature provides as endless variety of subjects for her art.
As an artist the discovery of Chigiri-e’ opened her creative channels. She enjoys the variety of papers, the feel of paper, it can be sturdy or fragile; bright or hazy; fibrous or sheer—gauzy. She loves it all.
Her work can be found in private and corporate collections locally, nationally and internationally.
Images of her work can be seen on www.MyArtClub.com under Artist-Roxsane Tiernan; The Group4Art; and Burnaby Artists Guild; on Etsy.com in Roxssart. You can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Roxsane will lead us in a hands-on workshop that will give all of us the opportunity to stretch our right-brain to create a small piece of Chigiri-e’. In describing the art, Roxsane writes: Chigiri-e’ is a centuries old Japanese traditional Art. Chigiru is Japanese for “to tear” and “e’” means Art. The paper used is Mulberry based. Some is thinner than ½ a Kleenex. Some has extra long, random fibres; all are colourfast.
