Artist Statement:
Embracing the traditional craft of crochet, I find solstice in creating contemporary granny square pieces from my cozy home in Logy Bay, Newfoundland & Labrador. This pastime turned into a small business that fulfills my creative drive while honoring this heritage craft of my home province. My art allows me to escape the day-to-day hustle and delve into a world of craft. While maintaining an heirloom quality I deliver one-of-a-kind items to my customers with love and attention to detail. 
Artist Biography:
Julie Brocklehurst (b. 1978) was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.  After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland, Julie spent some years travelling and living abroad, before returning to her roots and her home on Canada’s far east coast. Influenced in design and aesthetic by the vernacular of rural Newfoundland, Julie’s blankets are an exploration of the intersection between colour, texture, and pattern. 
Traditionally, granny square blankets were created by the marriage of form and function, of style and practicality, of beauty and need. In creating her designs, Julie carries on a celebration of handmade tradition and cultural creativity, just like the beautiful grandmothers who made them for the same reasons long ago. 
Julie’s work has been showcased in several episodes of HGTV’s Rock Solid Builds. Logy Made was recently featured in the Maritime EDIT(ion), and will be featured in an upcoming issue of East Coast Living magazine.
She currently lives in Logy Bay with her husband, Andrew and two beautiful children.
