Winter Solstice


Getting the presents wrapped and painting a piece for Sandy about our family called “Love Memory”.  Our days are flowing so quickly!  Just finished “Moonflower Vine” by Jetta Carleton. Maybe one of my favorite reads of all time! watching lots and lots of Sharon, Louis and Bram with Luca, smiling at little Rosie and getting toothless grins back!

Waiting for the snow…

Celebrating the Soltice and what it means for our turning earth. Coming closer to the Spring, but loving winter and home warmth in our hearts – coming together in front of the fire and snuggling close at night. We are creatures of love.

At the Christmas tree farm – our first family cutting in Canada!

The best little winter shack – complete with hot cider and a wood stove burning.

Making the cut!

Luca on our front porch – showing off our mild winter temps! The most mild Christmas I’ve ever experienced! I guess I’m not in Kansas anymore…or so I thought!

A New Site To Call Home

Welcome to my new site! My brother Pippin has been helping me get this going – he is pretty much a super star when it comes to websites! Check out his work at:

I’ve added new galleries for my artwork with lots of options to purchase prints and cards – hopefully it’s an easy and enjoyable process for people! There is an updated bio page – as lots has been going on in our little corner of the world! I have a new book out, Prairie Nutcracker, which you’ll find on the Books page with an option to buy it too. You can also see more of my work through my Etsy page!

Enjoy poking around!

Going Home

Going home to Kansas. Taking my little Rosie with me, hopping on a plane from a city of millions and stepping off on the wide and quiet prairie. I live in Ontario, but Kansas is home. Although it is interesting how Home can be in many different places, depending on where your heart is on a given day. Snuggling with my little ones on the couch, it is there, of course…
