So guess what guys I am actually have a show next month and I have been busy preparing for it and trying to not freak out. I'm going to have my black and white pieces and some of my works on wood too. It's been a little while for me so I'm feeing a bit rusty. It's going to be Next month at Exposure gallery, I'll keep you all in the loop with all the details next week. 




So I have to tell you guys this story, cause it too funny not to share. When I was a kid I went out and got a birthday card for my mom and just wrote "Happy birthday to mom" in it and she was not impressed. She looked at it and paused for a bit and said "Thank you, but next time I was you to make my card". Yes I know that sounded a bit harsh but my moms a tuff cookie and she speaks her mind even when you don't want to hear it :) Fast forward to me going to Cegep in Montreal at Christmas I use to make my own greeting cards with dried leaves hahahahaha. Then I would sell them to my neighbours for $15 a pop! Every time I remember those days I have to laugh cause if the internet was big back them I would have been all over it. 

These days my card hustle is a bit more upscale :) no more knocking on my neighbours house with my cards :). It's for those of your who love hand made goods or to feed that inner art collector in you who cant afford original work. All these cards & envelopes look great in those little ikea frames ! You can get them at   



I added a bunch of new prints & cards to the shop! I also changed my shop design. After adding a bunch of different types of products it's started to look really busy so I had to clean things up. I also have free North American shipping on orders over $60. Go take a look and let me know know what you think.  



I discovered this website a few days ago and fell in love with the simplicity of their products. I particularly that boxer brief under ware and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that Undone is based in Toronto. Finding well made, comfortable & stylish clothes and undergarment close to home is the best! Let's just say that I've put them on my Christmas list.

I just love their Company philosophy 

Undone began with the idea that simple, high quality underwear and basics should be available all in one place. We love soft fabrics, perfect cuts, and the kind of clothes you wear every day and can’t live without. The labels we work with take a thoughtful and progressive approach to design and construction: production is smaller-scale and sustainable, and each piece is made to be worn season after season. We’re inspired by independent thinking and an aesthetic that responds to the way we live. 



Can someone tell me how we are in November already? We literally have less than two weeks left till the end of the month wow!

A few weeks ago I made some custom block printed stationery and shared it on my Instagram feed and they all sold out before I could put them in my shop! So I made some more and including the gift tags. They are block printed & hand finished on acid free matte black paper with beautiful silver, gold & white ink cause it's the season for bling! 

These cards are meant for people who love hand made goods and perfect for that special someone in your life ( even if that someone is you) and guess what? You can also frame them in a little ikea frame cause they are all one of a kind.  I will be spending all weekend updating the shop so you can see the full collection on Monday! A few of them are also in The Goods shop located on Dalhoise Street if your Ottawa based.



The other day I got a chance to speak to Stephanie Vicente of Herd magazine a fun little independent Ottawa based magazine. Since this month is support local month I thought it would be a perfect time to showcase them for Magazine Crush.

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself & your team?

I'm 29, born in Calgary raised in Ottawa. I have always been a writer. Ever since I was a little girl I've been writing all the time. I also have a professional background in film and television production, but left the field to start Herd Magazine. It might seem like an odd jump, from film and tv to editorial entrepreneurship, but it felt completely natural to me.

We have a creative and design team, Isaac Vallentin and Pascaul Huot, and together they make LOG-CB (click here for their website). I believe them to be the most progressive and creative dudes in the city. We've also got an Associate Editor, Patrick Jodoin, who is my right-hand man. Our Photography Editor is Chris Snow who possesses a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Concordia University. 

The magazine also wouldn't be possible without our amazing contributors, some have been with us since the first issue, and others have joined us later in the game.

2. What inspired you start Herd?

Unhappiness. For so long I thought I was made to work in film. I wanted to direct. I wanted to be Quentin Tarantino's female counterpart. But the longer I worked in the industry the more I missed working with words. I had some pretty dark times over the years, and writing was always my form of expressive therapy. When I didn't have time to do that anymore (because I was working 14-20 hour days on set) I forgot how to get in touch with myself. I saw where the darkness was leading me and I knew I had to change my lifestyle. This happened at a time when I was falling in love with Ottawa and the underground culture. I had previously worked on a culture magazine in Whistler, BC and remembered how neat it was to interview artists and learn some intimate stories about them. I wanted to do that for our Ottawa.

3. How do you source your material? 

There's not much rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes I catch wind of something that I think would make an interesting story and I write the idea down and assign someone to it for the next issue. Other times writers come to me with their own pitches. It's all very organic.

4. Whats your favourite thing to do outside of work?

That's a tough question because I'm not obsessed with any one thing outside of writing. I absolutely love films, especially French new wave films. I love to read. I love to ski. I love to drink bourbon. I love fashion. I love thrift shopping. I love live music. Basically, I like to do all the stuff that someone would expect me to like, haha.

5. What magazines are you currently in love with?

Kinfolk is so great. I love the quality of the photography and the writing. I absolutely love the colour palette. I also like Inventory even though it's more geared towards men. And Monocle Magazine for its diverse coverage and outstanding curation.

6. What’s next for Herd?  

We've recently recruited several online bloggers to keep up with some online content. We're aiming for the site to help us reach a larger audience, perhaps beyond Ottawa. We're also playing with the idea of larger, special-limited-edition issues for sale nationwide. Right now though, we're upping our distribution numbers to accommodate the growing demand. This last issue was the quickest issue we've moved. If we're going to make sure that as many people are picking up hard copies of the magazine as possible then we're going to have to print more copies!

You can grab your free copy at mags and fags  if your Ottawa based and Type Books if your in Toronto. You can also get copies directly from them here

Happy Monday guys 


I know I've been super quiet lately but I really wanted to focus on finish up a bunch of personal projects and I really didn't want to be too distracted. Isn't it funny how we have all these shiny devices to help us be more productive but some how it ends up taking over our day?! 

So I wanted to give you all the good news first! I've added a whole bunch of prints to the shop! Over ten new prints to be exact! And FABRIC! Yes you saw right! I'm super excited to share it with you. Go check it out and tell your friends and let me what you think! 

Happy Friday guys 


I've been feeling a bit under the weather all week so I kinda found it difficult to focus on getting things done. Whenever I feel like this I usually go back to working with my hand. I decided to get my print making tools out so I could experiment with a mixing traditional techniques printmaking techniques with my pattern play. 

I'm really feeling the results now many traditional printmakers would point out the imperfections in these prints but that pretty much what I love about them. Today I am working on the digital versions of these and seeing what happens when they become a repeating pattern. Wish me luck! Have a wonderful weekend guys!



Sometimes grocery shopping isn't just grocery shopping, sometimes it's the perfect place to find inspiration and not just what to make for dinner but for pattern lovers live myself. The colour combination and bold shapes on these wonderful pumpkins are so amazing I had to share it with you.
