Issue 29

I searched... looking up and down for the perfect Oak Tree. Along the way, I learned there's many species other than my desired rounded lobed leaf. Red Oak, Swamp Oak, Turkey Oak, Northern Pin Oak, Bur Oak... until finally, I came across my live model with leaf samples galore—a little White Oak! 

While you search for the perfect gifts this season, I hope it's a magical journey of sparkling discoveries. The stressful hustle and bustle can be relieved by noticing the little things. Enjoy a moment or more by: looking up into the sky when the snow starts to fall; going for a night time stroll to admire the neighbour's festive lights; singing carols while making holiday treats; or my favourite, sipping a warm drink with somebody dear. What do you love to do leading up to the holidays?

May you have a wonderful December that's happy and *BRIGHT*.
See you in the New Year!

Writing on Walls
Opening soon! This wall is 1 of a few items I've designed for a friend's restaurant opening in January. The wall's design started with handwriting on paper, then scaled up to actual size. It was printed on a large format printer which was used as a template. After transferring the lettering to the wall, there were precise lines to follow in white paint. Last photo: a little person got inspired to paint her own words! More murals at
Ohhh... Oak
I searched... looking up and down—and found mostly maples. 
Discovery... there's many species of Oak!
Drawing... White Oak was chosen for the rounded leaves that fits the vision for a playroom design. Here we go, a new mural in progress... this one's so much fun, oak leaves, acorns and squirrels—oh my! Let's connect on Facebook...
