Red Eared Slider

Red eared sliders are probably my favourite turtle. They’re just so gregarious. That flash of red on their faces is really fun to paint, too! I decided to go maximum rainbow on this guy and give it a rainbow shell.

My rug tufting class on Skillshare

Cat and Dog Micro Rugs

These adorable little guys are more micro-sized rugs! I free-handed the tortie in some extra space I had around another rug, and it’s extra small at just under 6” on the longest side. I created a template for the two tabby rugs, but they ballooned a bit up to 7”. They feel a little hefty for tree ornaments, but they’d still be very cute wall decor! The puppers are also around 7” but are quite a bit lighter because of their shape.

The blue tortie is available for sale, but the blue tabby is a door prize at the Capital Art Sale running at 1111 Regent St. Today is the last day, so please be sure to check them out!

Mini Border Collie Rugs

Here are two small rugs of a border collie puppy! I really love the look of the orange border collie for some reason. These are the last two rugs I’ll be making from this design! I’m excited to create some new, smaller designs for next year.

These rugs are about 13” on the longest side and come with two D-rings attached for easy wall-hanging.

These rugs will be available at the Capital Art Sale running December 7-10 at 1111 Regent St.

Calico Rug

This is very probably my favourite rug I’ve created so far. I experimented a lot with carving the yarn after the rug was tufted and glued, and that gives this piece especially sharp, clean details. I also just really enjoy the balance of colours. This design was based off a kitty I met at Purrfect Cup a couple years ago. The little kitty found her forever home long ago, but there are always more kitties in need of loving homes.

This rug will be available at the Capital Art Sale, starting tonight, and running December 7-10 at 1111 Regent St.

Biiiiiiig Stretch

It feels soooo good to be painting again after working on rugs for so long! I decided to ease back into it by painting my favourite subject in some dramatic lighting. I’d paint cats all day, every day if I could. <3

This original painting, and exactly two prints, will be available at the Capital Art Sale running December 7-10 at 1111 Regent St. Watercolour always looks way better in person, so I definitely encourage you to check it out if you can!

Skillshare Class – Intro to Rug Tufting

Hello, lovelies! I’m so excited to announce I’ve just published my first ever Skillshare class: Rug Tufting Gun for Beginners – Create a Colourful Pet Rug.

You can use my referral link to get one month free of Skillshare and check out my new class for free!

I’ve been working on this for the past six weeks or so, and I learned a ton making it. I’m really proud of how it’s turned out, but I’d love your feedback on how I might improve or make the course more comprehensive and useful for beginners.

Hopefully this will be the first of many online classes. I’d love to do some rainbow watercolour tutorials soon!
