A weekend riding!

Spent the weekend with family! All the cousins were together playing and riding their 4-wheelers. Connor took a spin on one of the dirt bikes and fell in love!
Oh we go again! These hobbies are not cheap!
Thanks Shay and Trev for a great time! We'll be back soon! ox

Career Day at Orchard Park School

I was invited by The Orchard Park Public School to be a presenter at Career Day for the Arts!
I had a great time talking to the Grade 7 & 8's explaining what I do for a living and how art licensing works. I took a variety of my samples to show the kids. I remember that age, wondering what I wanted to be when I grow up. How stressful it can be to make big decisions on where to go to college or university. I wish someone had come to my school and talked about art licensing, photography, animation when I was in grade 7 or 8.
Thank you Orchard Park for having me! Follow your dreams everyone!! You can do anything you want....just believe!

Nature Babies

As spring seems to be in the air, I'm drawn to all things green, glorious and new! I sit in the studio staring out my large windows watching the squirrels collecting items for their nests. I can see all the robins searching for worms and the trees are budding with new leaves.
When I was a little girl, I would head into the forests beyond our cottage and picture a world of tiny people that lived amongst the trees, leaves, moss and mushrooms. So small, most people didn't even know they were there. Reflecting on my imagination as a child, usually ends up filling a sketchbook with doodles. So I wanted to share one of my "Nature Babies" with you. She is bundled up tight ready for a nap, holding on to her ladybug doll that her Grandma made.
So look closely as you begin to garden, there may be something wonderous living amongst your trees and flowers! Keep smiling, Robin
