About

Sequential Drawings...Narrative Art Practise...Colouring Books... Call It What You Will!

I spent my childhood with my nose in books and sketchbooks. Art School was a given, and I put in six years of the stuff, at Emily Carr and then UBC. Just as I was graduating with my MFA I found out I was pregnant. The focus of my artistic practice was on sequential drawings; images that told a story just by being traced and overlapped with eachother. The first subject I turned to after graduating, was amazing development going on inside my body. Next, and pregnant again, I began creating a book I could use to share my love of reading, drawing and colouring.

I also thought, just maybe, I could convince adults to colour my books too, and when the colouring trend spread across the world, I was more than ready to share these projects with people everywhere. I've been carefully developing a drawing style perfectly suited to this fascinating trend all along. Enjoy!

Production partners

  • SURE print

    Calgary, AB

    When I am printing small batches of hand drawn cards I have my printing, cutting and fold lines done at my neighbourhood printer. My contact there, the owner, is a friendly woman named Angel.

  • Topline Printing

    Calgary, AB

    I chose a local printer to reduce my carbon footprint, to support a business in my community, and to facilitate valuable meetings. Kelly Beckenridge, my contact at Topline, conversed with me many times and a high quality product was the result.
