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.
Here’s my shop freebie sticker for this year! Tarts is all about apples this year. I really enjoyed painting this little guy. Besides being my brand mascot, he’s also just super fun to draw with his big, round head and tiny, noodly arms.
I’m actually planning to repaint this piece in rainbow colours to better match my other stickers. For now, this little guy goes out in every order from my online or Etsy shops!
Hello lovelies, and Happy New Year! I hope you’re all having an amazing new year so far. For my first post of 2023, here’s my latest sticker design: a rainbow coloured Eastern box turtle! I’m slowly re-creating my classic turtle sticker set as traditionally painted, rainbow turtles. It’s taking quite a while, but I’m really enjoying the process and outcome so far! The jumbo, holofoil version of this little guy is a Ko-fi exclusive and available only this month! Please be sure to sign up if you’d like to get one of these shiny friends for yourself.
I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve painted on wood. It’s such a unique painting experience with the watercolours; they really react so differently with the watercolour ground.
I wanted to create a wispy, kind of celestial feeling with this little fox. This was my first time using salt with my watercolours, and I find the result really interesting and fun. Definitely something I plan to keep playing around with in the future.
This original painting, and exactly two prints, are 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!
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

Crabs are just so charismatic. I’ve wanted to paint one for a while, but I just couldn’t resist when I saw this guy with its little eye horns. I had a lot of fun, and learned a lot, playing with textures on this piece.
I painted this little corgi friend as a donation for Isaac’s Way restaurant’s charity auction. They’re raising money for theater classes for local kids! Check out all the other artists’ work here: https://isaacsway.ca/art/
