I am an illustrator and I live in Toronto with my husband Liam, and our cats Flora, Maeby and Piglet. I am interested in visual culture (all things art, illustration and design), creativity (otherwise known as how to motivate yourself to come up with ideas that don’t suck) and modern domesticity (I love cooking, writing recipes and taking care of my home, kitties and husband).
I love things that are modern juxtaposed with the traditional (otherwise known as the transitional), DIY, re-purposing, whimsy and the mid twentieth century.
I am always learning new things, and in the last few years alone have taught myself how to: knit, sew, cook, illustrate, make jewellery, refinish and upholster furniture, decorate a home, throw a wedding, and code a wordpress blog (like this one – neat, huh?).

about this site
I designed this website pretty much entirely by myself (and a little help from WordPress, Cyberduck, Textwrangler and W3C tutorials).
The site is best viewed on a Mac running Safari, but looks just as fine on a PC running Firefox, or even the most recent versions of Explorer. It looks like crap in Explorer for Mac though, but there’s really not much I can do about that, sorry. Why are you using Explorer on a Mac anyways? Safari works much better.
