Hello 

My desire for the creative life has led me to the streets of Paris, the boroughs of New York, the galleries of Berlin and always to the shores of the West Coast. I am inspired by living a simple life, rich in culture. I am drawn to cities where dogs sleep below cafe tables, where books and art grace the walls of homes and where the world slows down for a meal shared with friends.

I've made my home on beautiful Vancouver Island. My studio and home, a hundred-year-old character house, acts as the canvas for every photograph, recipe and dinner party. 

I invite you to read my blog, view my portfolio and please get in touch if you're interested in working together.

Pigeonhole Home Store

Pigeonhole Home Store

The first time I met with Carey Salvador we connected instantly. On one rainy winter morning over strong Habit coffee, we talked on end about home design, our mutual love of antiques and the rich history held by objects from the past. Carey had reached out to me to potentially create the branding for her new venture, Pigeonhole Home Store, a vintage and new home goods shop set to open in Victoria's Fernwood neighbourhood. By the end of our first meeting I was certain that the shop would be warmly embraced by our city and I was beyond excited to create the branding for this wonderful new addition to the community.

Inspired by shop signs from the past, I went to work designing a type-based logo reminiscent of general stores from the early 1900's. Collaborating with my friend and fine furniture maker Christen Lalonde, the signage on the Begbie Street side of the building consists of handcrafted wooden letters, fastened with copper piping to compliment the beautiful brass light fixtures. Classic gold decals grace the front door and transom.  

Close to six months later, Pigeonhole Home Store has opened it's beautiful door at the corner of Stanley Avenue and Begbie Street in the vibrant Fernwood neighbourhood.
