In support of my lovely friend Joyelle's recent book & art show "Princess Monsters," my son and I created our very own monsters – the monsters within us.

Meet Peep and Skeet. Peep is a boy and he's short and round. Skeet is a girl and she's tall and elegant. They are very best friends. They love playing hide & find games, reading comics, breakdancing, singing and pretending to be Sonic the Hedgehog. Their favourite song is by The Police, and since they don't know the name of it they just call it The Creepy Song. Peep really dislikes mushy vegetables and the tags in his shirts – he always cuts them out himself. Skeet really dislikes noisy places and being woken up when she's sleeping. Peep likes to eat seaweed snacks, chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream with sprinkles. Skeet likes veggie curries and chai tea.

Peep is really outgoing and noisy, and loves surprising and scaring others. Skeet is pretty shy. She likes to keep to herself and play quietly, but sometimes she can get pretty silly. They are very different, but that's what they love about each other. They will be best friends forever.

Congratulations to Joyelle Brandt on her recent work and successes. Shop her work here.

Product Spotlight!

[ art blocks, giclée reproductions, shop online ]

Hi friends, It's been a busy autumn. I've got lots on the go between my roles of mama, designer, artist, entrepreneur, cook and more. Amidst it all I'm growing and expanding (personally and professionally) and wanted to shine a spotlight on a few pieces I'm enjoying right now in my product collection! Hope you enjoy too.

A few of my surface pattern designs & sensitive, feminine portraits reproduced on mini art blocks.

My greeting card collection: I've added my surface pattern designs along with a few black and whites.

Here's the current product story, including matted art prints, mini tins, greeting cards and art blocks. I was at the printers today sourcing notebooks and notepads to add to the line. Boy I'm holding out for getting licensed! Paper goods make me so elated, I'd love to do much much more.

Were you looking for a gift or treat? Shop all these products online and in boutiques. Blocks $22, cards $6, tins $5, matted prints $28 small & $38 large.
