Call for 2018 Custom Orders - Due Soon!

Some ideas: garden material, wood, moss, bark, lichens, flowers, leaves, and more!

One of the overwhelmingly prevalent trends in their stories was that of life as a crown ward.   At any given time, the Canadian estimate is that approximately 40% of young people who become homeless “have had some involvement with child protection services, including foster care, group home placements and/or youth detention centres” (read the full report here).  So it’s clear that young people and children without a safe home and family are at much higher risk of youth homelessness - which in turn presents another array...

Me + Art Resin forever!

The lovely people of Art Resin visited my studio last year, and interviewed me about my work, inspirations, and methods. Not only do they make a fabulous, (nearly) fool-proof product line, they are also super kind and awesome people who made the whole process surprisingly comfortable.  Then they blogged about it. Now I'm blogging about it! What a whirlwind.
