Hello, My name is Anne Palmer, and I am an artist living and working in Vancouver. My practice has crossed many disciplines although my primary focus prior to the residency has been drawing. During my time here I was interested in how my drawings could be translated into new materials to further my practice and be able to plot bigger and better projects.
The result of my time here has been spent largely using the laser cutting tool with my drawings as a template, and I’m just blown away with the possibilities it provides. Working with different materials for me has created new jumping off points that I have begun to explore and garner new skills. Thanks to the laser cutter and woodshop, I have also begun a brand new interest in woodcarving and I’d love to see where that will go.
This artist residency has been a great opportunity. It’s atmosphere is a supportive workspace with creative and friendly people who have unique perspectives and troubleshooting skills.I’ve met really great and creative people which I’ve been lucky to participate in this residency with.
