Such an honour...

Connectivity: Port Clyde
Heather Dubreuil

... to have my work profiled in the latest issue of the SAQA Journal, in Kris Sazaki's "Notes from the President" column. This Journal is available in print and on-line to SAQA members only, but I have permission to reprint the column on my blog, July 26.

I found Kris's insights to be perceptive and thoughtful. Those of you who ask yourselves how fibre art is essentially different from painting will see that question addressed briefly in her text.

Thank you to Dianne for suggesting that I post my news here.


  1. I was going to mention this. Having finally joined SAQA I see you mentioned in the magazine, and a photo on the front of the book Portfolio 21. Congratulations!! All very well deserved.

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Linda. And yes, the unveiling for the next 12btd piece is August 31.

    1. Many thanks Heather. Now I'm a month early, and have the chance to make something I like. I've already made two pieces!

  3. That's excellent news,! I'm no longer a SAQA member and would have missed this news, so thanks to Dianne too!

  4. I saw this when I opened my Journal. It is all I have had time to read yet, but I appreciated the comparison with a painting Kris loves. It was very interesting to have the explanation of how that piece and yours speaks to her.
    I understand your piece, and mine, both had to be resent or something. So, I am glad it did get there! I had to remake mine because when it got all the way to Bracknell, then it went missing! Maggi took the remake with her.

  6. Well done heather! Beautiful work!
