Today I hiked up to my favourite little pond in the woods, (and the inspiration for the Lilies of the Woods Dress). It's a beautiful, peaceful and serene place... full of birds, wild berries, dragonflies, and bees... the wind rustling through trees...
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery - air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, 'This is what it is to be happy.' ~ Sylvia Plath
I'm in Norway for my annual visit, rest and connection to my roots. In a place like this, I'm continuously inspired by the beauty of nature. It's so beautiful...
I'm filling up at the well of well-being!
Meanwhile, back in Vancouver BC, for the third summer in a row, our forests are being devastated by wildfires and our Vancouver skies have become an eerie orange glow of unhealthy air. So I thought... How can I make a difference and help our beautiful nature and forests?
So... I'm happy to announce that I've just partnered with One Tree Planted and will donate $1.00 directly from each purchase (big or small). Every product sold will plant one tree!
Further, I'll donate $100 (that's 100 trees!) from all large painting sales. You can view my Forest Tales Project HERE.
It's been my goal to bring the Beauty of Art to people's lives and the world through original art and product designs. Now I can also help create more beauty in the world by helping to reforest the earth, one tree at a time. Every tree helps...

Happy Summer Solstice!
I'm in Iceland, exploring and creating in this beautiful and magical land... So while I'm away... and to celebrate the beauty of nature... I'm having a Summer Solstice ~ Midnight Madness sale!
Some new little creations... Tiny paintings!
Display these little paintings on a mini easel, then use them as colourful coasters...
One size fits most! 😊
