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.

Along the way, I was–sometimes knowingly, oftentimes not–testing business ideas, writing books and building community.

Choose Yourself First: Women Making Art (And History)
