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.
As an adorer of amphibians, summer to me means….frogs. Teeny tiny tree frogs, to be exact, that sing their creaky little songs as the rain patters down.
This is one of three paintings that will become this year’s posters for Feast of Fields, a glorious outdoor food event that raises funds for local farming initiatives. Dig the smilin’ sheep!
I’ve just completed this poster for Intrepid Theatre’s production of the young adult play, “I Have Seen Beautiful Jim Key”. Written by Intrepid’s Janet Munsil (a recent Governor General’s Award nominee), the tale of trust and kindness between a freed slave and his horse melted my heart. In case you’re wondering, the space at the bottom of the art is for insertion of times, dates and ticket prices. All lettering is hand rendered!
