Upcycled some glass bottles to make some funky candle holders. Not too bad for a first solo attempt!
First consults on a wardrobe for SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) events – stay tuned for the finished products. Includes custom dyeing (and fittings, of course)
Time to revamp the last of my three webpages – my personal webpage. Looking to challenge several courses at UFV to complete my degree, a great many of my work experiences directly related to the content of many of the courses offered. If I was able to prove my knowledge in these particular areas, I could receive credit (and pay a hefty fee, of course)
I spent a lot of time analyzing my past work history while updating my webpage to use for school credits…and looking for just the right image (taken by yours truly at the Friendship Garden at the Clearbrook Fraser Valley Regional Library)
Here’s the before and after:
Thanks again WordPress for being so much easier to use!
One of the fun parts about being the Program Coordinator at the Roofing Contractors’ Association of BC (RCABC) was being able to use my arts skills in new and exciting ways. I created some movies to help apprentices walk through getting their financial supports set up, and made up a few displays with fresh new images, as well as managing their Facebook page with fresh new posts weekly.
Here’s the link to one of the videos and a few of the displays I created:
Onto new professional adventures!
This house needed some love – and the red brick walls needed to go. I swapped out the colour for a more ‘ocean-tastic’ shade that soothed the soul.
This trainwreck was a fun exploration into creating figures with chicken wire and using papier-mâché to cover it. It was meant to be our Easter mascot, but the kids went wild with me painting it. We may still use it for a Cinco de Mayo pinata…
Here’s a collection of some of the pieces done indoors while waiting for the snow to subside…
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 The gallery was a separate system (Gallery v1) which was outdated and no longer available to upgrade.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!
