Medium Tiger Rugs

Tigers are my second favourite wild cats and my favourite big cats. They’re so charismatic and majestic! These little rugs are about 15” across, and the tiger’s detailed pattern is fun to simplify at this smaller rug size. The colour contrast really helps these rugs pop despite their smaller size.

These small tiger rugs are available at the Capital Art Sale! Be sure to swing by and see them in person. And check out all the other amazing work by local artists!

The Capital Art Sale is taking place May 9-12 at the Capital Exhibit Centre!

Medium Fox Rug

Here’s another design that I feel really fits as a rug! My husband absolutely loves foxes, and I find myself making a lot of different fox designs. It doesn’t hurt that foxes are quite charming.

Each fox design I use is unique, and these two little guys are the only rugs I’ll be making from this design. Please be sure to check them out at the Capital Art Sale!

May Exclusive Jumbo Sticker – Rainbow Lynx!

Another month means another sticker! I’m trying something new this month by releasing jumbo stickers as a limited time item on Etsy, so now you don’t have to subscribe to my Patreon or Ko-fi accounts to get one. Hopefully that’ll make collecting jumbo stickers a little easier for some people. The regular sized (2.5”) stickers will still be available as usual.

Canadian lynxes are my all time favourite wild cats! Their dramatic ear tufts, huge feet, and little nub tail are all just too cute for words. I tried to really maximize the rainbow on this cutie, because it’s a stand-alone sticker. I think it turned out really cutely!

3d Printed Fox Coaster

One more 3d printed idea I’ve been toying with is coasters. It’s been a real challenge to find the right level of details to show well at this size. The 3d aspect actually obscures the image a bit by casting shadows. I’m also playing with different filament colours to add a bit more interest and contrast. I think I’m on the right track with this guy, but there’s definitely more experimenting to be done!

New 3D Printed Design – Fox Planter!

Playing around with modelling and 3d printing some more. This is a fox planter I designed for my husband’s birthday. (He really loves foxes.)


I learned so much with this design! It was very tricking figuring out how to render fur without over-rendering it, which is something I struggle with when painting, too. The inks I used for painting the details also applied a bit patchy, so I’ll try a more wet-on-wet painting style next time or use a fully opaque paint. Despite the flaws, I’m very proud of this piece!

New Planter Design! 3d Printed Rainbow Opossum Planters!

Dipping back into 3d printing, I’m extremely proud of these opossum planters! I used Nomad Sculpt to design them. They’re probably my 5th design in that program, and it’s pretty intuitive! I printed these little guys in rainbow filament, primed the bits I wanted coloured with transparent watercolour ground, and then painted them with India ink. I like how the semi-transparency helps the painted colours feel more integrated and natural.

These two planters will be available at the Capital Art Sale in May!

New Sticker Pack! Rainbow Hippos!

Here’s a new sticker pack to ring in Spring! And what could be more springy than hippos??
I’m really pleased with how these guys came out. Mid-tone animals without markings are usually really difficult for me to rainbow-ify, but I think this set looks really nice together!

These vinyl stickers are now available on my Etsy and here on my personal website!

Screm Hippo Sticker

With their massive mouths, you know I had to do a scremming hippo design! I was really indecisive on how thick to make the legs on this little guy. In the end, I felt like thinner legs helped the jaw feel bigger, even though it’s a little inconsistent with the other hippos in the sticker pack.

The final sticker pack will be dropping on Monday!

Grumpy Hippo Sticker Design

It’s time for another sticker design! Here’s a grumpy little hippo, because hippos are probably the world’s grumpiest animal. Everyone feels grump sometimes, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less loveable! Just ask before giving them a little squeeze.
