I am a mama of two little boys, family photographer and artist. I woodburn (a technique using a hot metal point that burns the wood), illustrate and paint all things cute and delightful. My dream is to make people happy and joyful when they see my whimsical, playful and cute designs. Bringing a smile to someones face (littles and grownups alike) makes my whole heart full.
I am originally from Calgary but left when I was 11. We moved to a beautiful little Mediterranean island near Greece, called Cyprus. I finished school there, then made my way to England for my BA in Fine Art and my Masters in Art, Design & Photography. We (my then bf and I) moved to Calgary shortly after then. We have now been proud Calgary residents for 6 busy years.
Where do I start? I remember walking around markets here in Calgary and being so amazed by all the creative people who just put themselves out there. One little adorable little booth that always inspired me was Little Me Paper Co. Leanne has the most adorable little illustrations, and the cutest layout. Seeing her work and designs, I remember thinking, “These are my people”!
I always say what truly inspires me and my creative life is this beautiful city we live in, its picturesque surroundings and its inhabitants. I wouldn’t have taken the dive if it weren’t for the supportive people, fellow maker community and amazing artists this city has.
In the near future, I’m hoping for my little business to have more of an online presence. So far, I have only been able to sell work locally. Which is so great, but it would be even more amazing to have my little pieces all over.
In the distant future, my absolute dream would be to have a little drop in artist studio/store to teach classes and have people come in to work. A place to be your full creative self!
