I have another 20 panel story being written and painted for Wapiti Music Festival, my third WonderWalk. It’s called The Other Side Of The Bookshelf and it’s about two kids from opposite sides of library hill who just adore books. Only 5 panels started so I’m only 25% happy.
I recently painted a trash bin for City of Fernie and won the popular vote! No way!! My first time in the 4 dumpster events I’ve participated in. This is what it looked like, from sketch to finished piece.
What?! I won popular vote for the first time! Thank you to all who voted and gave me encouragement and especially all the "cuuuuuuute"s I heard throughout the day. It was a Saturday well spent. This is my process from sketched idea to finished dumpster. A little different than I thought it would be but my paintings almost never end up where I expect. #painting #dumpsterart #fernie #storytelling #artwork #ferniedumpsterart #creativeprocess #sketchbook
Michelle and I just released our latest mobile designs. Check them out! http://www.annexsuspended.com Watch them move to the sounds of Dwight Schenk.
This is a business I started with my friend Michelle Galway and recently we decided to pair paintings with mobiles. You’ll see our first Circle Art Wall Hanging paired with Life Aquatic, a curious submarine. I love painting and I can’t wait to see where this idea goes.
Check out Annex’s Etsy shop for more details.
Every once in a while I’m going to be posting a FREE instantly downloadable art print. For the next 7 days you can download “Unimpressed Giraffe” for free! Use it as a colouring page, edit the colours and print it for your home – the possibilities are endless.
Post your new art on social media and I’ll send you a little present! Don’t forget to tag me. Tag or share with anyone you think might like our unimpressed giraffe. Spread the word!
I’ve been adding new artwork and black and white sketches to my shop almost daily and just recently I started a short term Art Print Printing option. Most of the artwork is downloadable and printable from home, which is brilliant because you don’t have to pay for shipping, but I think it’s nice to offer art prints for those who don’t have a printer at home or just want it a little bit easier.
Black and white sketches, baby birth prints, newborn announcements and my colourful vector art is all included. Enjoy!
I'm feeling really proud of myself right now. I want to start my first two weeks with a party. A 30% off all printable art party!

I’m going to be telling my story over the next week or so on Small Town Social if anyone is interested in reading it. The Traveller was displayed at Wapiti Music Festival and it will be out again during the Chautauqua festival in Fernie, BC. There are the others who are not in Fernie and/or are not attending the festivals and I want there to be an opportunity for everyone to read it. The layout was done fairly quickly, and professional photos are in my possible future, but the story is still there and I hope you enjoy.
There is also a wonderful article about The Traveller in The Free Press. Read the article here. I should probably grab a copy to send to my mum.
Last year I deputed Shy Girl at Wapiti Music Festival and this year I’m introducing a whole new story titled The Traveller. It’s a simple 20 page illustrated story with few words. I’m hoping the imagery will be enough to grab people’s attention. I’m know I’m in love with the story and I can’t wait to show it in Annex Park on August 11 and 12th.
