For #ThrowBackThursday today I wanted to share where did the it all begin for Rampant Red Design? It started by attending Emily Carr then College of Art & Design, grown today into a university status. Where I studied and worked at my techniques in drawing, photography, sculpture and painting. I learned the formula of colour and how to translate it to paper and now into space. A place where I trained my eye and focused my mind on art - and today still have a passion for it plus a true love of painting. Especially in the medium of water colour, losing my mind in moving colour and water of a brushstroke for hours......amazing.
One of my pieces was showcased in the Gallery, it was the life of a seedling called 'Nettle'. I traveled the lower mainland with Nettle, showing the seedling life outside the forest. The moments were captured as a slide show then played reflected through a reclaimed window.My first mind translation of thinking outside the box.
Here are a few images showing the history and industrial setting of Granville Island of then.......
Followed by images of what you find today, an everyday market of food, flowers, and artisans galore.
Learning at Granville Island, at Emily Carr School of Art & Design.
I wanted to share the place where it all started #GranvilleIsland as even today it is a mecca landscape of diversity, colour and an abundance of real creativity. A place that where I not only studied my craft that now has become my passion and foundation in Interior Design.
I encourage everyone to visit, sip coffee, taste foods, and soak in the vibes of the artisans that keep it alive...
