I am a Canadian hobby artist. I was born on Vancouver Island in the wilds of the west coast of Canada and am a coastal girl, through and through. My granddad was a sailor based in Victoria on Vancouver Island. I have a bachelor of arts and have studied art my whole life, alongside traveling the world and drinking tea.

I don’t waste time trying to be cool. I am interested in inclusivity and reject exclusivity. If my works speak to you, that is enough for me. I don’t play on the edge of anything – I’ve learned better than that. What I do is present what I see, how I see it, and the way I want to translate it into art.

I enjoy playing with language and am flummoxed by the multiple spellings of the word “jewelry” – you know what I mean. You will likely see me write it multiple of ways, some are even wrong.

I love the experience of sharing a pot of tea with gentle, supportive, caring friends and family. It is often during these close connections that I get inspiration for my artistry.

The Pixie-Atelier is my tiny little workspace. I am @theteapixie and I paint, design jewelry, play with graphics software, and scribe, all from my cosy corner. In this land, aspects of nature seem larger than life and this can be seen in my paintings, photography, digital design, my pixie’s art, and my pixie partner’s photography. I have yet to find a rose as large as I can paint one. Mind you, my jewelry tends toward miniaturizing the earth’s treasures.

I wish upon you the beauties of the Pixie-Atelier.

I aspire to create pieces with so much air and breath. And …

Making Meaning

It’s what we do when we draw, write, talk, think, photograph, paint, or use electronic media to create. It’s this, not that. It’s that, not this. Pixies can’t help but define things by what they are not. And yet, we become defined by what we do. Not who we are. Not even how we think. But what we do. No matter how much you may consider yourself to have a clear sense…
