journaling the journey

journaling the journey

Currently, I am on a journal-making frenzy! I was asked to make a large travel journal as a wedding present for newlyweds travelling around the world on their honeymoon. I loved the finished product so much, it gave me a bit of travel fever! I love to re-use old books, tons of ephemera as well as incorporating my art into the pages.

I will have a brand new batch of them November 12 in Uxbridge at the USS Drama Students Fundraiser. Check out my events page for more information.

Currently, my art is also on display at beyondCRAFT at the Latcham Gallery in Stouffville throughout the weekend.

Fall — in love

DSC_0352I love autumn. New beginnings and a time for change. The days get shorter, mornings are cool and all the shades of yellows, oranges and reds are seen from my windows.

It also means Arts & Crafts Shows season! That means that I am busy creating. The Georgina Studio Tour was a blast. Probably the most perfect weekend — thank-you to all the wonderful people who stopped by Homestead Orchards to visit (and to buy apple pie).

I am preparing for beyondCRAFT Show & Sale which starts in little over a month, at the Latcham Gallery in Stouffville. If you have never been, it is a great show —  like a mini One of a Kind. Speaking of which yes, I am getting ready for my first Christmas One of a Kind. Remember if you are going to the show, I am there during the second half, December 2nd to the 7th.

Here are some of my newer canvases. As you can tell, this home quote is a favourite of mine. It seems to resonate with many other people too, so it is a keeper.14-h28 214-h28 14-h28-2

 I am also enjoying my woodland girl canvases. I think a boy is next — perhaps a couple?

And the girls are so much fun to create. I love the texture of her hair.

Once again, my jewellery, canvases & cards are at the beyondCRAFT Show & Sale in the Latcham Gallery, Stouffville, from November 14th to 17th. I have been experimenting with all sorts of supplies like Big Village recycled glass fair trade beads from Ghana, West Africa for my jewellery, to Shiva oil paintstik’s on my canvases. My cards are now available in sets of 4, and come in assorted, girls & spiritual themes. I have been playing with bigger canvases, and although it takes me much longer to complete, I am loving the process.
