I am a printmaking artist based on the West Coast of Canada, with my cabinetmaker husband Dave, my artist mum Betty, our new "edition" Katja, and feline assistants, Murri & Mr. Stubbi (plus a flock of Muscovies and a couple of pigs). My artwork reflects upon the natural world and the irony of progress. I have a shop on Etsy featuring hand-crafted, original prints.
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking, baking & processing food from our garden (canning, lacto-fermentation, dehydrating, etc.), a fair amount of time with my daughter & husband, not nearly enough time in the studio, and precious little time exercising!
While we aren't really farmers, we aspire towards homesteading status, raising a fair portion of our own food (animals included), and doing some gleaning from the local environment. Knowing where our food comes from and how our food is handled/treated is a big deal to us, plus we just really enjoy learning how to do stuff. Our animals & garden have taught us so much, and enter our young daughter to teach us even more.
I've not done much art since the birth of our daughter, but eventually I'll be back at it. I especially love teaching printmaking, because it's so versatile and interesting, and really easy to do a lot of it at home on your kitchen table.
I try to fill my life with learning and discovery, and I am lucky enough to have a life partner and little girl who not only help make that possible, they are just as interested, too!!
