A while back I got a random call one afternoon from Diane Yanch, the Culture & Historic Precinct Supervisor of the city telling me that Shaw was going to be doing a piece on our city, Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta and asked if I’d mind being interviewed to discuss Art and community.
At the time I remember thinking “sure no prob” I’ve been interviewed on radio and in print before…no biggie…it wasn’t until I told my husband that it dawned on me Shaw is a TV station Haha.
Needless to say being a newbie to TV I had a few butterflies floating about but I made out ok. I loaded up 3 paintings for my background including my latest Tree of Knowledge piece that I discussed last post, Despair an Acrylic 24″ x 36″ painting and a untitled poured abstract 2′ x 4′ and made my way down to set up.
Once we figured out how to attach a mic to a shrug and conceal wires we were golden. Though not shown I did start off the interview joking that “I paint so I don’t have to talk much” lol with much chopping and cropping later below is my 90 second contribution to this piece on Art in the community.
Thanks for watching! And stay tuned for more art and posts (as time and memory permit) 🎨
