February's Featured Artist:: Urszula Petrykowska

This month we get back to normal programming in the gift shop with the return of our Featured Artist display. Each month, one of our members is showcased which allows you, dear viewer, to get a little more exposure to their work.

This month is the turn of Urszula Petrykowska, one of the talented jewellery artists in our collective.
Urszula has recently graduated from the renowned jewelry program at Vancouver Community College. 
All of the jewelers in the gift shop have a different area of expertise, and Urszula's area of interest is in metal. She works in sterling silver and copper, shaping and forming pieces by hand.
Her work is unique, featuring inspirations from nature and the landscapes around her.
Each of her pieces is a beautiful and wearable piece of art.


More of her work is currently on display along with other members of the Blackberry Artist's Society in the Roots: Year of the Forest display at Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam.
