canadian roots

30 Dec

rootscanadaYou all know I am a proud Canadian. I am obsessed with our wildlife, I love exploring our landscapes, and I even collect silly bits of Canadiana like Mountie portraits and beaver paintings. So the other week, when a Canadian icon contacted me personally, I was beyond flattered! The creative team behind Roots Canada‘s instagram page asked to “re-gram” (which means re-post) a recent image of mine as they celebrate Canadian Winter this week. I of course said YES! The image they chose was from several weeks ago featuring my elk and cardinals hand-pulled print. In their post they write “Today we celebrate Northern creatures with beautifully illustrated cardinals and elk by @naturesmyfriend. What do you love most about #canadianwinter?” What a wonderful holiday gift to have one of my images shared with Root’s 10K+ followers; even though we’re in the middle of a Canadian Winter, I feel all warm and tingly! *side note* there are only 2 of these prints left in the edition (available here), after that they will only be available as digitally printed postcards!

designer of the week

You may have noticed those fancy banners on the side of my blog for a little while now, advertising the amazing MAKE IT shows in both Vancouver and Edmonton. I am stoked to yet again be a part of these exhibitions, selling my handmade creations to nature and animal lovers! designerI was flattered when the Make It team contacted me to be featured on their blog as the Designer of the Week! It’s always awesome to represent a wicked event, and also garner some added exposure. Click here to read the feature.
