I was SURPRISED how warm they were! I sure didn't expect it and I wanted to share. (Hope you're well! xo)

I find that my feet sweat in Sorels and then get really cold. I do not find that in the Valenkis. I’m not sure about the washability. I’ll let you know after spring comes and the roads are mucky. So far - I’m really impressed.

I love winter. I love snow. I love ice. I love polar bears. I love Canada. I also understand, quite intimately, that in order to enjoy those three things YOU NEED TO BE WARM. Also important to note: I live... Continue reading

I can tell you that the #kbWILDER prints will be around for a long, long while (and printable in sizes up to 35x48!). I understand the annoyance of high shipping costs, too so thanks for understanding.

I'm sorry about shipping. I have struggled for years shipping things from Canada. Things are slow, they never arrive, etc, etc, etc. The shipping rates are determined by Crated for the prints and there's nothing I can do. I'm sorry about shipping.

Last weekend, I spent some time hanging out in a downtown back alley painting (I might have indulged my inner Banksy as well). I painted 3 huge panels. The canvasses (3/4 inch MDF board unprimed) were ridiculously fun. Probably because... Continue reading

THIS. I was silenced yesterday when I saw this on Instagram. THIS beautiful photo. A spontaneous + unexpected studio reno required my space to be taken apart yesterday and packed away. I moved piles and piles of scripted pages -... Continue reading
