Bonne Année Grand Nez!


This year went by so fast! I feel like I neglected my blog a little, I was so busy marketing my new coloring book. The response has been so amazing that I am trying to get another one out in the next few months, stay tuned for some sneak previews! I did find time to enter the last Spoonflower contest of the year, "New Year Tradition", voting is open until tomorrow, Wednesday, December 30th.


I also decided to enter the Port Townsend Paper Mill Annual Kraft Christmas Tree Contest. And guess what? I won the "CEO AWARD". I found out when I opened the newspaper and saw my name in there. I feel very important. It is not clear what I actually won, but I am pretty sure it is a private jet, or a 60 foot yacht. Either way, everybody is invited to a wild party as soon as I receive my prize. I will keep you posted, start thinking about that you are going to wear…yes, it is very exciting!
Happy New Year everybody! It's going to be a good one and a wild ride!

Agenda à colorier


I feel like I abandoned my blog for a little bit there. The last month has been so busy with the launch of my new book: The Pacific Northwest Coloring book and then we had a bunch of people visiting us. So it's been action packed but a lot of fun! And I am happy to report that sales are going very well! We are now in stores in Washington and California and soon the be in Canada and Oregon! And then I got a contract to do 12 illustrations for Rolland Paper Inc for a 2016 agenda coloring book. This is the cover, a colored illustration of their very cool building. I had a lot of fun doing this job and working with my dear friend Louise. I can't wait to see it printed and I will show you more of it in a following post! A bientôt!

The Pacific Northwest Coloring Book


We are happy to announce the release of our brand new coloring book: The Pacific Northwest Coloring Book! It's a collaboration with my artist friend Melina Lamoureux who is also from Montreal. We both share a passion for the Pacific Northwest and for drawing, so that's seemed like the perfect project for us! We did 20 illustrations each. We'll take you on a road trip up and down the West Coast through luscious forests, seaside villages, serene lakes, snow capped mountains, salty oceans and white sandy beaches. You will certainly catch a few waves, hop on a ferry, sail to an island, watch for whales, visit a lighthouse and encounter all kinds of wildlife. Also, if you live near Port Townsend, come to our book launch next Thursday October 29th from 5 to 7pm at Summer House Design on Water Street. Happy coloring!

Merci!


A big thank you to everybody who voted for me in the Fabric8 contest. I did not win but I am deeply touched by your support. And I am grateful that I got in the top 8 to begin with and for all the exposure. And the good news is, I have a lead at another great fabric company and I will be contacting them shortly! So sooner or later I will have a fabric collection out there, but it won't happen through a design contest. Stay tuned!

Blue Marguerite


For my last coordinate for my Fabric8 Multiflorum Collection, I decided on a flowery all watercolor design. I took an illustration right out of my sketchbook and cleaned it up a bit then created a repeat in photoshop. Marguerite, the French word for “daisy,” is derived from the Greek word, margarite, which means “pearl". I love daisies, they are simple, elegant and sweet. This cheerful watercolor interpretation speaks to their sunny disposition!
