I discovered recycled vinyl tarps when looking for a no-cost alternative to cover up my bicycle for the winter. The first thing I made was a tote bag, and I have been experimenting with this material ever since.
I have a certificate in visual design from the University of Calgary. I discovered my interest in art while obtaining my bachelor of science degree in geology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Cartooning my notes was a great way to memorize the material! I also enjoy making art and cartoons on my iPad. VinAlly2010 on Flickr.
I have overcome a 7 year chronic illness, for which I am very thankful.
Right now I'm working hard at making my Etsy shop the best it can be. Suggestions welcome!
