Update for the end of this month

Well its look like the holidays are around the corner and man have I got so many things I want to complete. my list of things to steadly rises all the time. I feel as though I never have the time of day to complete the tasks I set out for myself. Keeping yourself accountable is hard work but I know if I work on the little things the bigger things are bound to follow.

Ive got a few x-mas gift ideas and comissions im working on right now. Im starting up my pet portrait gig again for the holidays. I figuered it would be a good way to get my work out there as well as have the little job on the side. ( like i dont have enough to keep me busy)

Next in my list of things to do is contact every independent interior desinger and decorator in the fraser valley about using my painting skills for possible murals that could be done within private homes or public spaces. My list is growing everyday, once I have enough ill make the contacts and then go from there. You can view my murals on Http://

Im also getting ready for an art show known as the "Wings Exhibit" that well be held on Jan 18th till Feb11th in 2009 at the kariton gallery 2387 Ware st in Abbotsford. If your looking for something to do come check out my work and many other artists at the art show.

Well thats about it for now. If I keep to my goals for the weeks to come hopefully ill feel as if ive made some progress. Next thing is ill have to check out some publishers to get some work for companys to produce illustrations. dont worry ill keep you all posted, wish me luck.

getting my art career started

wow! this is a big leap of faith for me. having just read the most amazing story about a women who created her whole self supporting illustration career from scratch! its enough to read to inspire one such as myself to start my own career as an illustrator. its a small step but its something.

there are a few reasons that i can think of at the top of my head as to why ive decided to do this for myself as an illustrator.
ive started this blog to give myself a voice on the net. now having my very own page to call my own i can at least have a proper url to guide anyone who might be interested in the type of art work that i create.
getting connected with other illustrators is a must, through my page im now able to do that, as well as supporting other artists that share the same boat as i do.

well that's about it for my first post, ill have my profile and art work up and running soon.
now lets get started!.
