Finished my first test with the tobacco baggies today and I’m really pleased with the result. I’ve learned from this test and have some work to do to be ready for @lightupthelanepd on February 8.

I just picked up over 100 tobacco baggies from an old friend. Big plans for these beauties. The colour and textures are incredible. So many hours of work in the sandy soil, hot sun and the rain. There are stories to be told here…. I’ll do my best to do them justice. Stop by my studio during @lightupthelanepd to see where this journey takes me.

Cold winter nights have me dreaming about hot summer days in my beautiful lakeside town.

Growing up in Tobacco country and working the fields has certainly made me who I am today. Early mornings and long days pretty much summed up summer vacation. The money was good, the work was hard and the memories are still with me today. I'm excited to reveal the latest HOME design inspired by life in rural Norfolk County and the icons that decorate the landscape. No matter where you've been….when you see the kilns, you know you're home.

I'm very proud to call Port Dover home. So proud in fact, that I created this design and had it printed on a limited number of shirts.

I created this image for a seniors vibrancy project. I love the colours and the impact it has. This was the first step in creating a successful event identity. The image was applied to all marketing materials and provided opportunities to create some very unique pieces. If your group needs some guidance to get a project going, give me a call. I can help. Let’s start a new project together.
