Thanks so much to everyone who has come to visit me at Tracy's Open House, 613flea and the Canterbury Christmas Show! It is such fun chatting with you about your sea glass collections and beach memories.

Excited to be participating in an Open House with Tracy Armstrong and Bev Thibault on Sunday November 8, 2015 from 1-4 pm at 33 Promenade Ave., Ottawa ON. Please do come by!

Tracy Armstrong
Tracy Armstrong creates original abstract art with a focus on the color, movement and texture of our natural world.

As I delve into my art, I realize how much I am drawn to the natural line rock formations, the patterns formed on an old stone wall, the movement of water, and the shades of colour in our changing seasons. I am awestruck by the beauty of rust — yes, rust is beautiful! I see nature, shapes, and patterns with new perspective, noticing and relishing the subtleties around me. Found objects, recycled materials, and the printed word are all full of potential, a collage of ideas that could lead to a new painting. When combined, acrylics and mixed media lead to unlimited possibilities, changing and becoming something different from their original form.

Bev Thibault
A child's hug, giggles amongst friends, or a savoured moment of quiet ~ my paintings depict the joys of a woman's life. The figures in my work deliberately lack facial features so viewers can easily see themselves in the piece. Using limited palettes of bright saturated colours laid with bold yet economical brush strokes, I seek to convey the ephemerality of life's simple pleasures.

Kristina Rudnitski (me!)
Each piece of SeaCycledGlass jewelry is handmade by me from genuine sea glass that I have collected from the beach. I use mostly sterling silver as this complements sea glass beautifully. My designs are contemporary, modernist, and whimiscal.

I am an environmentalist and artist, living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Being Eco and Chic are both important to me and are in no way mutually exclusive! My professional background relates to environmental science and international chemicals policy. My passion is grounded in combining the arts and science of sustainable living through environmentally responsible design. For the past 20 years, I have explored various media to express my passion including stained glass, oil painting, building my studio in the urban woods, feng shui, and now sea glass jewelry.

613flea at Landsdowne Park was tremendous fun! Being in the historic Aberdeen Pavilion was a highlight knowing that I was now sharing a story stretching back to the beginning of Ottawa. Also, I loved browsing the 1950s cocktail dresses at my neighbors' stalls...

Only thing I'd change is to turn on the heat lamps; I was tempted to buy the mink stole next door just to keep warm! Hopefully next time (yes, I think there will be a next time) the heat will be on.

Here are a few pics of my stall with the iconic Aberdeen Pavilion windows in the background.
