Michelle has sent this info:
You may have seen my work at the FibreWorks and BC Craft Council galleries this summer as well as an ongoing exhibition of my work at VanCity (@ Robson & Denman) that runs until January. I'm currently working on design concepts for a solo show at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery in 2012. While you're out crawling come by the studio, see the new works, and have a little conversation and refreshment. My studio is a little off the beaten path but close to most of the venues especially the William Clark Studios and the Old Foundry Building. It's easily accessed from the back of the building and I'm fortunate to be able to offer wheelchair access. 

Studio Location:  #201-1610 Clark Drive (btwn Graveley & 1 Ave E)
