I’m so looking forward to Valentines Day this year! Since I renovated my studio and can have events there now, I’m going to open it up for a new release party February 10th for my local collectors in the Vancouver area! There will be new Bee themed scarves, prints, totes, Valentines cards and more goodies and treats! If you’re in the Vancouver BC area and would like an invite for my 11am or 5pm Feb 10th event just email firstname.lastname@example.org ! Here’s some photos of how I decorated it last year for love-day. My inner interior decorator had a blast!
If you can’t make it to Vancouver, fear not! I have more fun themed goodies coming to Etsy Feb 3rd starting at 9am PST. My First Dibs collectors got to pick out their favorites vintage plates and original artwork before release. So if you want to get First Dibs on release goodies and Patron-Exclusive treasures, like this Kitty Berry Kiss Kiss plate, you can pledge for the reward on my Patreon Here!
I’m so excited to show you guys my studio! After months of renovations, it’s all been worth it. This is my sanctuary. My creative safe-haven! I’m so in love with how everything came together, and how creatively energizing it is to have a dedicated place to channel all my creativity!
Let me give you the tour! This is my computer workstation where I have a Wacom Cintiq touchscreen. These babies are amazing for Photoshop. Highly recommended!
It’s really important to me as a creative and an artist to support my fellow artists and creative friends, so I have a library and collection of books, artworks, toys and other things to creatively energize me through the day! It’s so lovely to be able to have a cup of tea and look through an artbook, or listen to one of my audiobooks surrounded by beautiful things other artists made with love, while I create my own paintings!
Speaking of what I love- look at this little nugget! Loki loves the patio outside my studio, and has his own dishes and favorite sleeping chairs. Just like the little prince he is!
My studio is also where I keep lots of special goodies and one-of-a-kind samples, proofs, and treasures. I’m going to be opening my studio up for invitation-only events, tours and release parties! So if you’d like to sign up for an invitation to my events in my Vancouver BC studio, email email@example.com !
It’s almost time! I’m back at Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (Vancaf!) starting tomorrow May 20 & 21.
