About

Making Space to Create

I started this shop as a means to sell paper goods when the idea was just a dream and life was busy and chaotic. For a long while I didn't post anything, wondering if I even had anything of value to post. I suppose that is representative of the struggles I have had with self worth in this journey as an artist. But despite those doubts, slowly and surely, products were posted and I began to develop my style in the creative world.

I grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan and went to a small school which meant that I didn't have the same opportunities as many and never received any arts education. When I moved to Saskatoon, I lived in a small house named Bottomley Cottage while I worked to receive a Certificate in Art & Design which would help to build the portfolio I never received in high school. It was there that I discovered the passion and calling that would lead me to where I am today. It was also there that I had so many formative experiences that would shape how my life would look later on.

Eventually I went on to receive a university education on the west coast and during that time, met my now-husband. After moving to Vancouver in the months after we were first married, I began to really invest in my creative career. My work has evolved since that time, but I still hold onto the same values of beauty, simplicity, and truth. And although I work part time as a ceramic studio assistant, I hope to someday make this my full-time career!

I hope you feel lighter after perusing my shop. I hope it inspires you to send a bit of joy someone's way.

    I am an artist and illustrator, dedicated to creating pieces that reflect my love of nostalgia. I love to develop a sense of place and feeling of home in each piece that I paint that hopefully connects with each person that views my work.
