I'm a Canadian designer/artist, loving wife, and mom to 3 chicken farmers. We live in rural Alberta, Canada, and I work from a lovely home-based studio, surrounded by aspen forest, wildlife, and natural beauty. My work is heavily inspired by nature and strives to achieve that (im)perfect balance between sophistication and whimsy.
