Her zany stripes make the garden vibrate.
She is EXUBERANCE personified.

The Dormant Garden


Winter is a time to cultivate a different kind of garden.
Tactile meditation on the possibilities.

Exuberance: The Garden at the Ontario Craft Council



...extended till April 4!

Exuberance: The Garden is an exhibition by four Toronto artists inspired by the beauty and the beasts of their private and intimate gardens. Paper, textiles, leather and glass are transformed to create audacious handcrafted work that celebrate vitality, joy and abundance.

Eileen Kwan takes botanical drawings into the realm of embroidery. Her installation of sculptural representations comes together in a riotous celebration of nature's beauty, bursting with colour and texture.
