Agents of Good Ornaments

I had the pleasure of working with John and Jen again at Agents of Good this winter to create custom, handmade Christmas tree ornaments as a gift for 11 of their clients.  Each one is unique and illustrated based on the community work each client does.  All the organization have such great causes, it was so wonderful to learn a bit more about each of them as I created the pieces.

Special thanks to Jesse Ewles, for helping me when I was in a mad panic cutting up tiny bits of paper, and trying to get everything done in time.

Framed Prints At Scout

I was super excited when a new gift boutique opened up real close to me on Roncesvalles.  Scout has such a great selection of cards, accessories, jewelry and household items.  I'm thrilled that, over the past few weeks, I have had a number of framed prints up among all the goodies. The owner, Leah, has been doing such a great job selling them, I'm often scrambling around trying to frame up new prints.

Each piece is unique, because I use carefully selected vintage and thrifted frames.  The artwork is sometimes reworked a little to fit the frame.

Many of the pieces shown in these photos have been sold, but I keep bringing in new ones to replace them.  If you're in Toronto, definitely stop by Scout and take a look around!
