100 Days of Painting

From June 1st, 2021 I am undertaking a project of 100 paintings. The first half were painted daily, and the second half weekly.

This is a chance for me to explore deeper into my painting practice, and for you to get some original art at really affordable prices.

Available paintings can be purchased through my online shop, Dwindle River (on Etsy).

You can see all of my 100 paintings as they are created on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

I’ve published several books, but it didn’t take me long to discover the wondrous world of zines. I’m drawn to zines for their handmade tangibility, experimental nature, and the unique ability to be deeply personal with them.

As a woman of many interests, I also love that I can combine photography, illustration, and the written word so comfortably in a zine.


With a deep connection to the natural environment, and an insatiable appreciation of its beauty, I have turned to photography to both capture and express how I see the world.

You can purchase photo products (like mugs, cards, and prints) or read my blog where I share thoughts from behind the lens.

#1 John discovers that magic might be more real than he ever imagined… and is in need of a hero.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My son… does not “like” to read. The Caretaker of Imagination is exactly what he needed! He was eager to read it every night before bed and was excited to tell me about the book. I highly recommend this series.

The author’s voice flows beautifully off the pages. This is a book that begs to be read aloud. I can’t wait for the next book!
