So fun getting to gift wrap my little Bee Girl art block as a birthday present!
Working on a new batch of art blocks! After mounting my prints on the wood panels, I pour resin on top to give them a super shiny finish. It takes several days from start to finish, but I love the way it makes the colors pop!
Did you know some shops now offer gift wrapping? I love this subtle white on pearl striped paper matched with blue ribbon. So pretty! Wrapping gift orders is definitely getting me into the Christmas spirit!

About

Artist, painter, cute-maker.

I'm an introvert. There's no place I'd rather be than curled up in my studio, working on a new painting with a pug snoring at my feet.

Being alone does not equal being lonely. Sometimes you need to find a quiet place to unplug. I love to fill my space with handmade items because they remind me that we're connected - we are all part of this community.

I think this is why I create imaginary worlds - exploring what's under the sea or just beyond the forest edge. The characters I paint feel like my imaginary friends have sprung to life on my canvas.

As a child I spent a lot of time reading. My paintings are often described as having a "vintage storybook" feel. Some people do buy them for children's rooms, but I think it's important for adults to look at things that make them smile, that remind them of their own childhood. We need to tap into that place before the world told us what we could not do.

When you adopt one of my pieces, I hope you'll look at it every day & remember to have adventures!

Dream big. Explore. Be yourself.

    I make art to connect people. I love exploring hidden places just beyond the forest edge, under the sea, inside ourselves. Looking around my home, I see so many handmade things that remind me of the people whose hands created them. We are connected.

Shipping
All orders are shipped from my studio in Vancouver, BC. For orders to the USA, especially during the busy holiday season, I will often cross the border to ship from Washington state. All other orders are shipped using Canada Post.

TRACKING

Basic shipping prices are the lowest available, which means there are often no tracking options.

USA >>> Most orders are shipped First Class Mail or Flat Rate. If you would like to upgrade to Priority Mail, please message me and I can confirm the current rates.

Canada >>> Tracking is available on Xpresspost orders which average $17.62 (arrives in 2 business days).

International >>> Tracked packet is $46. Xpresspost is $65 to most destinations (arrives in 5 business days guaranteed).

Note: these prices are for small items, such as lockets and art prints. Larger items like canvas prints, wood blocks or original paintings will cost more to ship.

I'm happy to refund any shipping overages. For example, Alberta is considered "Regional" so Xpresspost may cost less.
