Sybil in Cycles

November 29, 2020

I am pleased to have an abbreviated biographical account of British-Canadian Sybil Andrews’ artistic life published in a gem of a twice-yearly chapbook out of Ontario, “The Devil’s Artisan.” (Winter, 2020)

According to the DA website, “We reach out to a global audience of typographic and printing arts enthusiasts who appreciate the value of the printed word even in this digital age.” More info about the journal is available on their website at –

Print copies also available at the Vancouver downtown Chapters Indigo’s magazine section.

Coming soon….

I’m emerging from ‘lock down.’ Expect musings about Sybil Andrews, a BC printmaker; how Covid is impacting BC workers; celebrating a Vancouver art institution; book reviews on women’s suffrage (“A Revolutionary Wave”) and a couple’s challenges with early onset Alzheimers (“Four Umbrellas”).

More details to follow as articles are published.
