So freaking excited to announce that we are back at Granville Island this week. A Cagey Beard & I are a little rusty, so I held off on announcing until I was sure we remembered how to set up our display & could get Square working to process payments. The ever frustrating supply chain issues… Continue reading We’re Back!
Hello friends! Ever since the pandemic forced us to pack up our table at Granville Island back in March 2020, my life has been pretty much flipped upside down. Selling my work at in-person events (like festivals, markets, craft fairs & art shows) is 80% of my income. Shutting down was scary, but I understood… Continue reading Pandemic Update
Hola! It's that time of year again, when Cagey Beard & I do our best not to kill each other while selling our wares at big holiday market events! After 11 years of markets, you'd think we'd have this whole thing running like well-oiled machine by now, but it seems like every year we end… Continue reading Holiday Markets 2019
So excited to kick off the annual Eastside Culture Crawl tonight! Once a year all the studios in my building, 1000 Parker Street Studios, are open to the public.

This new series of paintings has been keeping me busy over the last few months as I've been experimenting with painting in, over & with resin. I've worked with resin for the last 8 or 9 years as a top coat for my lockets and wood block prints, but this new series uses many layers… Continue reading Layers of Control
This weekend my studio building is hosting the 2nd annual Parker Art Salon, a fantastic art exhibition displayed along the labyrinth walls of 1000 Parker Street. This warehouse building is 98 years old & studio spaces of all sizes & shapes have been carved out over the years, so it's a treat to see… Continue reading Parker Art Salon 2016

It won't… Continue reading First Saturday Studio Open House
My newest addition to the robot portrait series is Walter (Robot no.9). An amateur fisherman, Walter got hooked on the pastime after spending summer holidays at his uncle Stan's cabin in Saskatchewan. He loves to spend time on the water, despite the constant need to refresh his TruCoat Rust-Proof finish. He also enjoys campfires, s'mores… Continue reading Introducing Walter (Robot no.9)
