Extras; making art on the side.

A few things I have been working on:


Complete piece.

As I was rummaging around I found a face brush I hadn't used, so I made it into a tool; I liked the effect it created!

Creating art aside from the main project I am working on.  Sometimes I just need to express myself in a scaled down casual manner, for fun.

This time of year around the holidays can be quite hectic and overwhelming, please take care and stay warm:)



  1. Is the "Exclamation" piece the one where you reached that rare moment of creative elation referred to in a previous post?

    1. Nope, this Exclamation work was one I did before that post when I found clarity in a decision I had to make (that was on my mind for some time). Thank you for leaving a comment, I truly appreciate it:)

  2. Those paintings should be on a card Marie!
    Allot of emotion bursting inside. I wonder if you have ever thought about creating a heart-in-hand kind of comic strip? Maybe one based on a character similar to the submission you sent for the Canada Post Stamp Competition last year. If I remember correctly, I think you were a finalist and received allot of attention for it.

    1. I've been thinking of products more often lately:) Cards, mugs, stickers, even cushions, textiles would be interesting too; this is all a learning experience as I have no knowledge of how production, buying/selling/shipping/storage/etc works... I'm good with creating the art piece or concept or image, but when it comes to the nitty gritty of multiples I sort of suck at it! I'm learning.
