By Artist Darlene Kulig
- The inside fabric is Polypropylene filter (64 gm) which is the same filter in N95 masks.
- We recommend washing in a fabric bag or hand washing.
- Each mask is 2 ply material with a woven polypropylene filter to prevent droplets from getting out. They are designed with protection and comfort in mind with soft light material for breath-ability, a comfort band to create less pressure around ears and a better fit.
- They are professionally sewn with ribbing around the mask to maintain shape. Sustainable, environmentally sourced and made in Oakville, Ontario!
$10 from each face mask will go the The Craig Kulig Memorial Fund
to help fund cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital.
Backstory - This is my memory of the hike we took through The Battery. I instantly fell in love with all the brightly coloured jelly bean houses and of course the warmth and hospitality of the people of St John's!
Darlene began painting full time ten years ago. Her work utilizes synthesis or stylization - an approach that came into Eurocentric art from Japan in the mid 1800’s. Many of Canada’s great landscape painters (Lawren Harris being an obvious example) have done this. Darlene makes her approach her own by using strong (high key) colour and uniting smaller shapes into larger more powerful areas by controlling her values. Her love of the beauty available in the Canadian landscape is clear. What is especially impressive is that she has developed a unique very personal approach that "feels" Canadian. Darlene is also a featured artist in our Art Sales + Services program.
