Kroma Acrylics

I was in Vancouver recently and had a chance to stop in a little store on Granville Island called Kroma Acrylics. I was picking up some items for a friend but the shelves and shelves of intense pigments led me to pick up a few treats for myself.

Next week I'll be loading a palette with these creamy paints and taking them for a spin. I've tried the Black Gesso and it is amazing.

I'll keep you posted on my results! (and finally post some sketches, I haven't forgotten)

Cross Stitch Patterns at The Golden Hoop

A few months ago, I had an interesting request - a licensing agreement with The Golden Hoop for a line of Cross Stitch patterns featuring my artwork. I was very excited to see my work translated into this medium.
Anyways, click here if you want to see the patterns available so far, they will be adding more in the near future.

Sketchbook Cover - Sparrow

It has been a long, long time since I kept a sketchbook. I used to have one on me at all times, not to sketch so much, but to noodle around and dream on paper. Looking back, I used a blog format even before there was internet.

Since I've never minded sharing my sketchbook, I'm hoping to post some of the pages of my newest endeavor over the coming weeks. Its a different side to my art.

The cover was painted with acrylic on black gesso. I'm doing some research for a client right now that involves sparrows, and I was so in love with these birds I was inspired to put one on my new book!
