  • Custom Thanks

      Shannon & Eric’s Custom Thank You Card Again, Shannon knows what she wants!  Fantastic, and I liked her directions.  I still favour my first drawing though, where their Foxy selves were nude in the canoe.  I guess it was a bit too risqué for a wedding thanks ;)  Cut offs are cute.  Nice touch.…

  • Shannon & Eric Wedding Invite

      Custom Wedding Invite for Shannon & Eric This was a fun little project, off my beaten path.  Shannon saw our wedding invite through a mutual friend, and so had me design hers.  I liked how she knew what she wanted, from subject to background details.  I did up a few different drawings and we…

  • Thank Goodness For You!!

    Thanks from Owl Adam, and Pussycat Wiggy. Here are our Thank You cards we sent out after our wedding.  Really, without the TONNES of help our friends and family put in, the day would have been major blando.  Instead, we had such a beautiful, fantastic, colourful event, with good food, drink, dancing and everything. Couldn’t…

  • Adam Owl & Leslie Cat

    Adam Owl, and Leslie Pussycat get Married!  Ink drawing scanned and coloured in Photoshop. 4″ x 6″ on brown recycled card stock at Metropol. Our invite inspired by the Edward Lear poem, The Owl & the Pussycat, which clearly suits us.  We got wise old Adam playing guitar, the ocean, catty old me, a pig…

  • Mara & her Dad, approximately 18″ x 20″ (I should write these things down). Awwww, Mara, and  her father, I love everything about this picture.  Their eyes, his sweater, their bevies, and even the background details.  Maybe it’s cause I have a soft spot for dads, I don’t know.  I am long overdue posting this,…

  • Wedding Portrait for Christine, acrylic on wood, approximately 24″ x 24″. Christine Boutillier.  Wow.  I am so boosted up, grateful, and thankful for her patronage.  Seriously.  I wouldn’t be making a living here if it wasn’t for her confidence in me.  She has taken my art under her wing as well as introduced my work…

  • Headless Wonders

    “Headless Wonders” donation to the MOCL $20 art sale. Ohhh boy, I am behind on my posting.  Please, cut me some slack…  I was pregnant, tired and lazy, I was on Mat. Leave, had a baby, moved to the country, I was busy making stuff, yadda yadda yadda.  I am back now.  It will take…

  • Wonder

    Wonder

    Trade commission… NFS, ‘Wonder” Kiona found my work at the Moss Street Paint-In this year, and commissioned this piece for food from her hobby farm in Duncan.  She gave me a tonne of pictures to choose from, one with the boy pictured here, and there was another with him holding a frog.  I melded the…

  • Grace

    Gift of “Grace” For Grace’s birthday in January, I painted this of her and her mom.  Grace, fun, gorgeous, childlike.  I adore her.

  • Inside the Outdoor

    ~Sold~ I see Don and Danny, the guy who looks like Greg, maybe Chris Purdy Claudette?  I get such a kick out of seeing my parents’ friends living it up, enjoying their youth.  It could be us now.

  • Road Trip

    “Road Trip” for Sarah from Grace and me  17″ x 24.5″ This just looks like a happy place.  Who doesn’t love a little old red truck, a tie-dye blanket and road trip?  There’s little detail of the landscape, but it feels Canadiana enough, jean suit, water, trees and sky. Sarah is a phenomenal show girl,…

  • Trouble

    “Trouble” SOLD, 26″ x 31″ Oh mom, you are (or at least were) Trouble, with a capital T.  Dad took this slide from below, looking up to no good.  She’s smoking ‘Sportsman’s’ she tells me, and she fully admits, yes, she was probably up to no good.  I was going to paint a raccoon over…

  • Blinded

    “Blinded”, 21″ x 31″ This hunk of wood paneling had white paint on it to start.  The bluish white glow reminded me of this slide of Regan Purdy’s ma, and decided it’d be perfect for the painting.  I do want to include more animals, and objects into the photos I work with, so was happy…

  • No title yet…

    ~Sold~ , 25.5″ x 38″ I am stuck on a title for this one. ‘Up Skirt’, I thought… Adam suggested ‘Cross Your Legs,’ and ‘Works of Art’.  I am open to other suggestions. I like how the woman on the left looks serious about a conversation and with the legs leaning out of the picture…

  • Art! Enter!

    Art! —– Enter! Adam’s store is beside the parkade on Yates Street.  Clever, he mimicked their sign replacing “Park!” with “Art!” and “Do Not Enter!” with “Enter!”.  Awesome.

  • Inside Love’s

    A picture from the show December 3rd, I’ll add a few more for fun.  Ashley McNeil Painted the portraits you see here. UUUHhHHHmazing! And she’s selling them for way too cheap by the way.
