It's been a while!

It's been a while! I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I've been busy making lots of new work, which I've been trying to put into groups. I've also have been on the mission to try and marry my digital and hand painting somehow... which has been a bit of a challenge but a fun one nevertheless. I decided to start with my two favourite things- food and folk art.
I've just finished a fun handpainted folk art group- here are some highlights!

I'm also starting starting some fun food prints!
Have a great weekend!

Print and Pattern Feature

My work has been featured on today's Print and Pattern! It's an honour to be featured on such an esteemed website! After almost two and a half months of hibernation in my studio and revamping my entire website and creating loads of new work, it feels great to get this feature. Thank you Print and Pattern!

When the mind wanders....

I let my mind wander today and somehow this came to be! I feel like I had no control over it. It just took on a life of it's own.

Antique Florals Galore

I'm starting a new antique folky floral series. I've been watching loads of British dramas set in quaint seaside villages lately and I think it's starting to rub off on my work.

Hello from Winterland

It's official I have the winter blues. Here in Canada complaining about winter is the national pastime which usually annoys me. I don't hate the winter so much but this winter has gotten to me, The depth of the snow, the freezing temps. All I want is to put on some sandals and sweat under the sun. Until then I will illustrate my sorrow. Charlie and I say hello from the land of the 10 foot snowbank.

Some great news!

I got two wonderful emails yesterday and today so I'd thought I'd share my joy! First I'm a top ten finalist in the Spoonflower Chinese Paper Cutting Design Contest! My design will be put up for sale as well added to the fat quarter ( a piece of fabric that is 21" x 18") bundle which will be for sale this week only! So get 'em while they're hot!
Second, I have been added to the KESS In House Artists Roster! My designs will be displayed on a variety of lovely home decor products! Please see their awesome website here. I have just been accepted so it will be a while before my designs are displayed but it feels wonderful to have gotten the ball rolling!
