Saskia runs a printshop and artist studio in the Sechelt swiya where she applies various printmaking techniques on diverse papers and fabrics. Her work is about human connections, has a hint of DADA and surrealism and balances between the second dimension (drawing as well as prints on diverse papers and fabrics), the third dimension (installation) into the 4th dimension (stop motion animation). Drawing is, besides printmaking, an important part of her contemporary art practice.
Fine and applied art blend together in her hand printed silk scarfs, tableware as well as handmade and printed (sketch)books.
The explorative character of the work is internationally acknowledged through grants, exhibitions, prizes and residencies.

Saskia is launching her studio at this years’ crawl showcasing a variety of mediums and approaches she has developed over 30 years of (inter)national practice. There are animations, (print-based) installations and drawings to see but also more applied arts like hand painted tableware, handprinted scarves as well as unique, handmade (sketch) books.
The studio is located on a property named ‘Print and Parsley’ at 9073 Redrooffs Road in Halfmoon Bay.
