Rootitoot portrait for Chatelaine

I illustrated a portrait of Ruth “Rootitoot” McCusker for Chatelaine magazine. Ruth was an Instant Pot guru who recently passed away. I learned a lot about Instant Pots while researching items for the background. I’ve never used one, but a lot of people are passionate about them…and apparently you can make cheesecakes in them!

Commercial Observer portraits

The Commercial Observer hired me for the 3rd year in a row now (thank you!) to illustrate portraits of real estate bigwigs. I tried out my new portrait style for these and am very pleased with how they turned out.

Cantons de L’Est sketches

The pandemic ruined our international travel plans for 2020, but Joel and I were determined to actually go somewhere because we needed a vacation really badly. So we decided to go on a road trip to les Cantons de L’est region in Québec (also known en anglais as the Eastern Townships). We had a lovely time: did some plein-air painting, ate a lot of great food, visited several breweries, went antiquing, went to Foresta Lumina (check it out, it’s so cool) and generally had a great time.

Twelve Dancing Princesses

Twelve Dancing Princesses

This piece took me AGES, but it was so much fun. It measures almost an entire sheet of watercolour paper (30″ in width), so I went big with it. I totally indulged in the costume designs, since the fairytale focuses a lot on the fine clothes that the princesses are wearing. I would love to illustrate the entire tale one day.
