In late March I was in Prince Edward County for pleasure and took the opportunity to visit and interview three artists, including maker and marker Mags Kandis, whose makes and marks with Indigo+Rust, and is also exploring botanicals. I look forward to seeing her new work this summer at the Wellington Market.
