Striving to live a creative life – that’s what I do. I have always been interested in making and dabbled with pottery, knitting and sewing but didn’t allow myself to fully explore this until just a few years ago. I took some screen printing classes and was immediately hooked!
Life’s Soundtrack grew out of a bigger project I’m working on. It’s a print project that involves all of the five senses. I took the hearing component and captured some intriguing sounds for the tea towels.

My creative life starts around 9pm. This is when dinner is done, things are cleaned up, my five year old son is asleep and I have a few hours to make! I’ve monopolized the dining room for far too long now so we’re hoping to put up a wall in the bedroom and carve out a small work space. I think it will be about 40 square feet, but 40 glorious square feet it will be! I live in the Danforth and work as a studio manager at a graphic design company.
Owlies of Ontario have been a passion project. These plush art owls are named after small towns in Ontario; names like Varna, Oxley or Duntroon. I have a huge stash of fabric and these cute little owlies are a perfect match! Meet Zorra, Duntroon, Carling, Varna and Monsell:
