Note from shop owner Hello friends and shoppers! Thank you for stopping in to visit my store. As a side effect of the worldwide pandemic I have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily close my store while I receive aid from my country. During this absence I will be working heavily to design exciting new art and look forward to offering them to you once I am able once more to receive sales. I thank you for your support and understanding during these difficult times. Stay healthy and safe, and we will see each other on the other side of this bridge. Thank you.

About AnOddityorTwo

On Etsy since 2009

Making art for the young and young at heart.

I've always had a huge imagination. I've also always considered myself a story teller. You can usually find me doodling on a scrap of paper somewhere, designing new characters and coming up with names and rhymes. After a few years of dreaming (and a lot of scrap paper!) I began turning these ideas into something solid, something three dimensional.

And so An Oddity or Two Mixed Media was born!

I began playing with collage straight out of art school. I'd spent a lot of time working in printmaking while in school, and decided to try something new and fresh. Once I started playing with collage there was no turning back! There is something about the use of beautiful papers, and glue that makes my heart flutter!

My art continued to grow, expanding into hand drawn jewelry, porcelain and much much more! If there was a new medium on the market, I wanted to try it!!

All art is made in my home's second bedroom turned studio. The space is chaotic, but I've come to appreciate the mess and its disorganized order. Working from home is exciting and freeing, although my boyfriend Kanis doesn't always appreciate the piles of half finished ideas that seem to always materialize! There is a good possibility upon visiting that you would find many an 'Isa Pile' of half finished art pieces stacked neatly around the living room and beyond. Yes, my work has a funny way of migrating around the house, and yes, I always get back to finish it. That's what happens, though, when your imaginations works faster than your hands. There is always something new and exciting to work on!!

What does the future of An Oddity or Two hold? Who knows! My big girl dream is to write and illustrate kids books. I'll get there I'm sure. For the moment I'm happy to hop scotch the stepping stones. It's all about the journey right? :)

    I'm a little Nova Scotia girl who grew up with a huge imagination and way too many pencil crayons! I have a massive love for paper, and collect old dirty things. You'll find me creating new characters, and designs every minute of every day.

If your item is a gift, and you would like your purchase gift wrapped, please contact me, and I will happily wrap the gift for free!

All packages will be mailed within 5 business days of received payment. If you purchase your oddity on a weekend, holiday or on a Friday, the package will begin its journey on the next closest business day. All shipping is completed through Canada Post with standard shipping. Small, thin items will be shipped via letter mail (which does not offer tracking, so if you'd like to have a tracking number, please let me know and I can adjust the shipping cost to offer this). If you would like your item Express Posted, please contact me for prices. All orders will be shipped to your Paypal address. If your item is a gift, however, and you would like it shipped to a different address, please mention this in the 'message to seller' box while checking out, and I'll gladly send it to your desired destination.

Orders travelling to the USA can take up to 4 weeks for delivery, depending on the time of year. Please keep this in mind if you have a specific date you need the items by.

International orders are, of course, welcome. Just send me a message for rates. Any orders being sent outside of Canada will require customs forms (which I will fill out truthfully because lying is bad). Also, all duties for the country the package is entering will be the responsibility of the buyer.

************************ Please Note****************************

Once your purchase has been left in the hands of Canada Post, I cannot be held responsible for any delays that may occur. Although I have had no mishaps with our postal system, sometimes orders can take a bit longer to arrive, especially if they get caught up at customs. If you'd like to purchase insurance, send me a message and I can definitely provide that for an added fee.
