Flexing them creative muscles!

This little cupboard came into my hands, like most of my projects, without a plan to go with it. Isn’t that how so much of life goes…. Not knowing what I had bought it for, or how I’d revamp it, it lived on a shelf in my garage until the day I found a home…

Organization, organization….

One day as I was perusing the aisles of my favourite second hand shop, I came across the two beauties below. The price was great and so even though I wasn’t quite sure how I’d use them (Play items? Storage and organization?) I purchased them. After debating a while, I decided I’d use them to…

Yet more bits and pieces

Another collage, more found pieces of paper. Whether it be wood, fabric, paper or furniture, I love assembling unused items to create something, adding pencil or paint stokes and shading to unify 🙂 Visit Galerie Le HangArt online or in person in Montreal to find some of my work 🙂

A long time coming :)

When we moved into our home, some thought needed to be put into storage and organization. One of the areas that needed attention was the entrance, where shoes, flip flops and sandals resided. Despite the shoe shelves I’d built and installed at the bottom of the closet there, our footwear collection had become unruly… difficult…

Chalkboard numéro deux

One day, on my way home (as many of my stories go), I drove by a painting that had been put on the side of the road, along with several trash bags. Of course I stopped to take a closer look. Although the frame was not of the best quality (the fancy bits were moulded…

A little felt… a little ribbon….

Just like everyone else on the planet, we’ve been staying home. It’s not completely different from how things are usually (I love being home), it’s just a little more intense when it’s because of a pandemic… Since I’m not going out, finding new old things to work with or transform isn’t an option, so I’m…

Each piece of the puzzle

I remember making a woodcut print block design in this manner a long time ago, as if flattening all items in my view, making shapes out of the spaces where an object would overlaps another. I loved it. As I think of it, it reminds me of exercises we had at school where we had…

This old thing?

I love to recycle and so when an item of clothing no longer serves us but I like the pattern or colour, I find it hard to donate it. Once I came across this Martha Steward pattern for a bunny rabbit, I found a purpose for some of my fabric 🙂 it’s a very simple…

Peace and cold

To me, there something very peaceful about wintertime. Large expanses covered in snow, like a ginormous blanket over the sleeping earth. The leaves have gone, nothing vibrant remains….. it is quiet and peaceful- and beautiful 🙂

Finished product

And now, with a few finishing touches, my portrait is finished.

Craving painting

I haven’t posted anything in a while….. as I have turned my attention to an illustration project I am enjoying. Throughout the process however (it’s a bigger, longer project), I’ve been craving painting…. So, here’s a little project I worked on, during breaks from my illustration project. Not sure it’s quite done yet, but almost…

Look up :)

Always look up. If you don’t, you may be missing out! 🙂
