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
After some ups & downs with my website, I am finally back (minus a few lost posts)! 2018 has been such a busy year filled with tons of market days at Granville Island, so my introvert tendencies are being pushed to the extreme. I pulled back from social media quite a bit this year to… Continue reading Welcome Back!
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
After hibernating through most of January & taking a bit of a social media holiday, I'll be back in the studio this Saturday for a studio open house - part of Vancouver's First Saturday Open Studio project! http://firstsaturday.weebly.com/ My studio will be open to the public on Saturday, February 6th from 12-5pm. It won't… Continue reading First Saturday Studio Open House
Vancouver has been extra beautiful this spring while I've mostly been tucked away inside, either at my desk buried under piles of receipts trying to work my way through tax season, selling my art at markets like Granville Island (back May 13 to 18th) or holed up at the studio working on new paintings. This time… Continue reading Sunshine and Studio Days
One of the hard parts of being an artist is allowing yourself down time to recharge. It's scary. When that creative spark of inspiration is elusive, it's easy to worry that it will never come back. Over the last few weeks, I haven't felt much drive to be in the studio painting new pictures. This… Continue reading Recharging
Happy New Year! I started working on this post a few weeks ago when I was knee deep in goal setting for 2015, planning which shows to apply to this year and doing some general reflection on the year that had past. And then John (my partner) got sick. And then I got sick. And… Continue reading 2015
As my last few market dates wind down, I'm happy to be easing out of the holiday season at Granville Island. The market is quiet at this time of year, which makes for much happier customers! Plus it's so festive! The lights are so pretty at night & if you have time to catch one… Continue reading Last Week at Granville Island!
