Rum Running and Norfolk County have a fascinating history. Working on more designs that reflect our heritage and culture. I’m not sure where this will go, but it’s been a lot of fun to create.

Working through some concepts here in the studio this sunny Sunday. Love where this farm heritage series is taking me.

This is what “tobacco worn” looks like. Beautiful textures on authentic tobacco harvest bags, created over years of wear and tear in the fields of Norfolk County.

The response to the tobacco baggies has been incredible. I've had so many people ask about custom names and I'm happy to say Yes I Can! If you would like your name, location or even year established on a bag, send me a message. Hand pulled original art on authentic tobacco baggies. Now available.

Just finished this 12’ hand painted sign for the Wine Cellar and Cheese Shop in Ingersoll Ontario. It was installed today and looks fantastic on their beautiful century brick building. Thank you @thewinecellarandcheeseshop for trusting me with your project. It was a lot of fun to work with you on this.

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.

The answer is YES! I can do custom designs and printing. Shirts shouldn’t only look good, they should feel great! Gotcha covered. 😉 Send me your idea and let’s make it happen.
