My mom is so happy with her little set of pebble arts. Don't be surprised if my sister-in-law begins ordering, too, since she was admiring my mom's. It might become a family thing!

I've been working on a new series of angels. I get many requests for these sweet little pics, and it's always an honour to make them. I've shared a few new ones in my ETSY shop today.
Wedding season is almost upon us! I'll be posting more wedding pics all week :)
I've been working on adding some new frame options to my ETSY shop listings. I'm in love with these new white washed frames available for my 12 by 12's and 5 by 5's. They pair so nicely with my nautical pieces.

Design is everything

I've always loved rocks and I've always loved design. It was a natural progression to start designing with pebbles.

My son collected a handful of pebbles at the beach one day and gave them to me in my studio. They were like tiny treasures. I had to make something special.

This is what I try to capture in every picture I make.

My designs have grown to include not only pebbles, but also sea glass, driftwood, moss, wire and the odd bit of pottery I find on the beach. Pretty much anything goes at this point. The only principle I try to maintain is simplicity. To say as much as I can with as little as possible.

    I've been an artist and designer since I was big enough to hold a pencil. It is my passion to turn ordinary objects into extraordinary works of art. I studied art at the university of Waterloo. The power of composition is a beautiful thing.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The frames are measured on the inside of the frame. For example a picture listed as an 8 by 10 would be 8 by 10 inside the frame. The frame itself adds about 1 and 1/4 inches to each side. For a total size of 10 1/2 by 12 1/2 on the outside dimensions.

What kind of glue do I use?

I get a lot of requests on how to make my art. Lol. I can not give away all my secrets.

Where do I get my frames?

Mostly I make the frames myself. When I get very busy I hire someone to help out and build some for me.

How do you ship your pictures? Mail address or civic address?

I ship all my parcels regular post through Canada Post, so make sure to use your mailing address. I try to ship orders out the same day or next depending on what time the orders happen. Orders do not go out on weekends or holidays.

International customer information

If you are ordering internationally, if possible please provide your phone number in a message to me. It is important for the customs form for international shipping.
