Nearby Farmers…

..are my local heroes. I come from a farming family, so I’m particularly proud to contribute art to this regional event.

Brand New Start Heart Art

When asked to paint a picture of a gift wrapped heart to accompany a magazine article about organ donation (the gift of life, right?) I quickly learned I was NOT allowed to go all Monty Python… I came up with this instead.


Just breathe…..

Easy to say, but hard to do when your whole world is ablaze. Although this illustration for Island Health magazine is for an article on lung disease, it’s certainly relevant to anyone battling or living near the forest fires sweeping across British Columbia. May the rain come soon, and lots of it. Lung-Disease-170606-web.jpg

The Cheerful Season

…And so it is. Although I made this quilt (the image was painted on canvas and then stitched) to celebrate the birth of a friend’s baby, it’s perfectly at home as my Christmas post, illustrating as it does a happy family and a weirdly decorated tree. A merry Christmas and a jolly New Year to one and all!
