Art x Advocacy: Decorate Your Home While Supporting Women And Children In Transition

The London Collection features original photography of popular city sights, cheerful doorways and rainbow rows of terraced homes taken during our time living in North West London, England, where we had our first son. Add a burst of colour and raise the vibration in your home, while contributing to providing a safe space for women and children in need. With every order, a portion goes toward supporting organizations with a mission to provide housing and support to those in transition.

Not Doing It All, Deciding What To Pursue And When

Someone recently posted a question in a freelance group for parents I’m a member of. They were wondering how we get work done, clean/sort the socks, mind the kids and look after ourselves…during the pandemic. It really stirred up some things for me.

Making Space For New Creations

Over the summer, I decided to start going through my travel photos taken over the years and explore the process of making them into fine art prints. I plan to print them locally here in Ottawa, Canada (our current home) to send out to others who are seeking to add a bit of colour–and perhaps adventure–to their home and/or work space walls. A portion of sales will go to organizations which help others settle and find a home, when they are without one.

Making Things And Breaking Things
