Christmas season is upon us! Gift painting of a white tumbleweed.
Second website revamp of 2016 – first my Flirt Designs website, now www.gerrykeryluik.com Going live by the end of the year – out with the old, in with the new!
The previous website was created in 2008. Back in those days, I created an image with clickable portions that linked to other pages, and all content was managed through a complicated coding process. The gallery was a separate system (Gallery v1) which was outdated and no longer available to upgrade. The site had changed hosts and was difficult to manage.
The new site has a user-friendly WordPress CMS. The artist can now edit all of his content on his pages, add/remove/edit all of his gallery posts easily. He can even change the theme of his website if he is looking for something fresh!
Hand-embroidered traditional Bukovinian design for a custom Ukrainian dance costume.
Just finished my most recent piece – inspired by the emu at the BC Wildlife Park
I got sick and tired of the old look from 2010 and it’s difficulty. I made the jump to a WordPress CMS and spent a weekend creating our new look! It’s so great to have a website that is easy to use, and to be able to add images of the stuff I’ve been working on without hassles. Enjoy the new site!
(I half wish I kept images of the first two FD websites – the one from the early 2000s was horrific!)
I made a different design of 3-point sling for a modified SKS. Testing to see if it holds up to a CQB challenge!
This is the happiest sight at the end of a busy wedding season – all the pieces ready to go!
The most requested alteration for weddings isn’t hemming, it’s bustling trains. Luckily, I’ve taken draping courses and it’s always been my first love.
Here are some of my favourite pieces from this year:
This is it! Flirt Designs’ first ever art show and book release! A four generation art show, featuring pieces from myself, my parents, my children and my grandmother.
