I'm super excited to share this project that I worked on with HomeSense to celebrate Canada's 151st birthday! We're feeling more patriotic than ever these days so what better way to show some homegrown love then to add some Canadiana themed products to your summer decor! I created 5 different watercolor illustrations based on iconic Canadian food (and drink) that were used on melamine plates and tea towel sets.
I love finding my designs out in the wild! HomeSense Canada used my Birds of Paradise tropical painting to create this cool shower curtain that's in stores now. I just love how it turned out. It's so colourful and fun!
It's so cool to see my Noodle Bowl illustration in the current issue of National Geographic Traveler Netherlands! I wish I was able to read Dutch as this is a tasty article about Ramen culture in Japan.
It was so lovely to have my work included in the feature "A Love For All Things Paper" over on Keenoby's blog. I talk a little bit about my process and my love of bright colour! Keenoby is building a worldwide community of makers, creators and artists from all different disciplines. I would highly recommend joining them and creating your own profile. Check out mine right here!
I'm super excited that my new recipe illustration was featured in They Draw and Cook's "Refreshing" collection this week! I'm trying to build up my recipe collection and food illustrations on TDAC (this is my third one so far) and for this one, I wanted to focus the design around some fun hand-lettering. I created this with brushes & a nib pen using Windsor and Newton inks. I've been really enjoying using these inks lately as they interact in weird & wonderful ways with water. The raspberry clouds in the popsicles were a happy result of this!
This is the final version of my illustration
Pattern & lettering fun!

You can find this as well as thousands of deliciously beautiful recipes from artists around the world on They Draw and Cook
Woot! Woot! Big thanks to the lovely ladies at Rise, Shine & Design for featuring my work and story on their blog this week.
