Tannis Turner


Tannis Turner is an artist/jeweller experimenting out of her studio downtown, and recently from the ceramic and woodworking areas in west van rec centers.

“I love to combine different materials, to see how they work together.
(Sometimes they don’t!) I have been approaching my paintings in this way for years, adding shaped lead panels , chain and moldings to textured polymer pieces, in what I think of as an extreme form of collage. I have recently gone back to using resin as an important element to unify the surface.

In my woven and beaded jewellery, I am adding natural found elements – rocks, driftwood and sea glass. I hope you enjoy the show.”
