Creating art on stone since 1998!

After having a few years off from doing art to run a bakery, I painted my first stone, a fox, after selling our pita business in 1998.
I had seen painted stones before, but I was inspired when I saw a delicately painted realistic cat stone that summer. I thought that this natural, beautiful canvas could be used to hold "real" art.
That is when it all began.
At first, I was painting only animals and flowers on my stones. I was striving to create a new type of stone art, one that would be perceived as more than garden art.
The quotes and words on stones were a natural process for me, having taken graphic design and calligraphy in Fine Arts School. I had been collecting quotes in a journal since I was little.
My art process involves scouring many beaches of Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba for unique stones. They are washed, dried and sorted. Each stone is hand drawn or painted with my own designs in my home studio. They are then triple glazed and signed and ready to sit in your home for daily inspiration for years and years to come!
I hope you enjoy!
