Since time has been a major factor for all things in life, particularly since a certain little babe was born, I’ve decided to open a shop site on Society6 for the time being.
This way I can offer to you a quick, professional service for prints (framed or not) and in some cases printed canvas also! Society6 provides a great place for artists to offer their work to the masses without the hassle of doing the printing, packaging, shipping and worrying that other avenues entail. My time is precious and I know yours is too. Keep checking back RIGHT OVER HERE SWEETNESS as I slowly add various images over the next weeks. great idea for gifts. and if you’re so inclined in participating, there’s free worldwide shipping on now and throughout the weekend.
Tofino, Vancouver Island, Canada. Home of the wild, wind whipped coast, sand and surf.
I was contacted by the prestigious Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino to see if I was interested in hanging some of my work in their new space (as of January 2013) the Henry Nolla Gallery.
Would I?! I was thrilled. This was back in June. I dove head first into the new series I was letting marinate. a short summer visit and I was hooked on the visuals, the sounds, the tiny and the gargantuan.

Everything is ancient. it creaks, it whispers, always moving. everything is living, breathing, stretching, growing. The area is filled with wild magic. The spirits dance there.
I produced about 15 new pieces over the course of the Summer. 11 of which were delivered to Erika at the Wickaninnish Inn. They should all be hanging now, so if you are in the area, please be sure to give them a peek.

The whole family just got back from a nice visit to my hometown of Edmonton. We had a grand time visiting with some fantastic old friends, lots of good love-time with my Mum aka: Nana Rue and some well-deserved r&r.
I also had lots of fun scouring the antique malls and my mothers basement for heaps of fun, vintage kitchenwares! Hooray! I totally satiated my obsession with vintage pyrex and brought home 2 extra boxes packed full and sent on the bus. I covet these goodies so much and now dream of the amazing kitchen I will have sometime in the near future where I will display all these goodies. Hahahaha!
Happy Springtime everyone. Lots of love from all of us! XO!
Not so many blog posts around here I admit, and I have many, numerous, unavoidable excuses. None worth repeating here, as it will wind up sounding a little bit lame and very repetative. I don’t get to create quite enough in this new mommyhood I am enjoying.
The thing is, there are slots of time reserved for myself as the wee one naps but I usually find myself under a pile of housework, or worse, procrastinating about projects to do. Since it seems once I get elbow deep in a project, the wee one wakes up, and I have to leave the half-finished mess for later. A wee bit disheartening to say the least. My artistic muse is NOT impressed by this. I have to tell ‘it’ that there is another baby in the house now. hahaha.
I will get over it of course, once things are back in order here in this disaster of a house… but I do find time to peruse artwork of all sorts by so many amazing talents around the internet.
Flickr.com never ceases to amaze me in the vastness of visual eye candy.
Click on the picture above to take you to the original posting on my flickr photostream..most of the artists are connected there, and you can follow those little pathways into a whole universe of great creative work…down the rabbit hole we go!
thanks so much for being patient with me, until I find some balance and a NEW HOME this Summertime (which equals= MORE SPACE!) this will surely help in the total organization of my life and my family’s life.
Best wishes to you and see you soon!
p.s. Ok, I’m not being completely honest about my creative time. I have been cooking lots, and hope to post about that soon. It seems I can lose myself quite well in the kitchen, and knowing that eating is a neccessity, drives me to create delicious healty and wholesome meals for my little family.
