A drawing a day, keeps the demons away!  It is really satisfying to challenge myself, to make marks and see what happens.  I have made a lot of new paintings in the last year using natural materials like chlorella, beets, turmeric, and coffee to name a few.  I am […]

Sadie’s Announcement

13 September, 2015

Custom Wedding Invite Such a good idea!  It was Rhiannon who chose to have her daughter announce their wedding to friends and family.  Very clever, and so making this was a lot of fun.  Rhiannon asked I include her daughter Sadie’s little blanket bunny, RaRa, but with a real bunny body.  Sadie’s nickname is Sadie […]

1 February, 2013

Party On, ~ 24″ x 38″ SOLD Chris Purdy in the background, my mom in the foreground in blue with a pixie cut.  I have always loved this photo of the girls getting their party-on.  The slide is overexposed and a bit blurry, the colours are so fun and appealing.  Happy to have finally painted it. […]

  “Canoediana” – Commission, ~18″ x 24″ What an infectious smile!?  Christine’s grandma is pictured here relaxing afloat a canoe.  When she commissioned this piece, Christine gave me free reign to add colour if I wanted too.   I contemplated making the shirt red, but opted out in the end as you can see.  I […]

Camping Patch

19 January, 2013

  “Camping Patch” – Commission, ~16″ x 20″, acrylic on wood. This may have been the hardest picture to paint as of yet.  My goodness.  I scratched out and repainted my sweet friend Miranda’s little child face.  She commissioned this as a gift for her Dad, and I wanted terribly to capture her perfectly.  I […]
