As a knitter, fashion designer, writer and painter,Ardath’s art has been evolving over many years as she experimented with fibres, textures, freeform design and colour blending.Her hand knitted garments are fanciful, and like her distinguishing unicorn logo, are mysteriously beautiful, seem to live forever and can be worn to dance on moon beams or for a stylish presence anywhere.
Her art has been influenced by her Icelandic heritage, her family ,her travels, living in creative community ,her many teachers and her own Spiritual journey.
Each wearable art piece created by Ardath tells a story, incorporating textures other than fibres.Each piece is as unique as the wearer and brings a sense of the wearer’s personal style.Each garment has been hand knitted using a blend of natural and synthetic fibres and is meant to embrace the energy of the person it enfolds.
Her art has been displayed in numerous art shows in Ontario and Manitoba and her art is hung or worn in other countries. One commissioned piece was for the first female President of Iceland and depicted Mother Sea,Fire and Ice.
Ardath believes that we are all born with creative energy and her Feelings and Fibres ,creative process workshops provide a consistent message of empowerment as this creative energy is unlocked, remembered or re-discovered by participants enrolled in her classes.
Ardath’s watercolour paintings include poetry and fibre and have become popular as reproductions in the form of greeting cards and prints for hanging.
It is a delight to be a part of this Wearable Art Show.
