Anyone who grew up on a farm knows that cows, seemingly placid and docile, can sprint like caffeinated athletes when they’d rather not be herded back to the barn.
The North Saanich Farm Market is the kind of event that makes me extra happy to be an island girl. What’s better than spending a leisurely morning buying the freshest vegetables, baked goods, cheese and (on yeah, baby) beer? Here’s the poster I invented for this weekly gathering.
Does the beginning of spring make anyone else daydream of running through meadows and chasing butterflies? I painted this for the latest issue of Victoria’s “Island Health” magazine.
My naughty girl, painted on a vintage tobacco tin. Moist, tough and full flavoured, indeed.
In fact, I dream of the me that would wear this cute outfit while whipping up a gorgeous meal when really I’m an artist who paints, and cooks, in long johns and a ratty apron.
I am gleefully proud of this l’il gem, which contains fourteen of my best illustrations and is entirely hand painted and hand lettered. $20.00 each, so consider this as a Christmas gift option!
…and better looking, and much less grumpy. This is my most recent contribution to Victoria’s “Island Health” magazine.
Who doesn’t want to cosy up to a door sized painting that includes a wild boar, an Hungarian dancer and many Amanita Muscaria mushrooms? This was painted on doorskin-you can see the wood grain around the edges of the piece.
This art will soon be appearing on Pomme Natural Markets’ reusable shopping bags, as part of their “local artist” series. And yes, people in Vancouver really do picnic outdoors all year round dressed in Lululemon gear.
It’s a rush to see my Feast of Fields art as a finished poster. Graphic artist Chelsey Doyle laid in the text and made it all look very sexy indeed.
