I’ve opened a brand new store on Creative Market. Here, you can purchase some of my favourite illustration sets for personal or commercial use. Simplify your own design projects with pre-made illustrations!


Don’t like online shopping? No worries, I’ve got you covered.

Join my Patreon community to receive printable rewards each month, including some of the items in my Etsy store!

For only $4 Canadian per month, you’ll get:

  • Exclusive blog posts (at least 2 per month). May include: process videos, behind the scenes content, rejected art, personal updates, and more!
  • Bookish BTS (at least one per month). Short stories, discarded chapters, or blog posts offering insight into my characters, world, or writing process.
  • An original, ready to print inspirational badge each month (1000×1000 px).
  • Monthly printables. Spruce up your bullet journal or scrapbooks with original, ready-to-print design sets (typically sticker sheets, but historically also calendars, meal plans, etc). A set includes at least two ready-to-print pages, and each individual design in png format (500×500 px).
  • Bonus, I leave the archives open, so you get to access all the past content, AND as I update design sets, you’ll get the new version!
  • Finally, expect the odd freebie (including colouring pages, bookmark sets, printable artworks, extra printable pages, and more). I love showing my appreciation by offering gifts to my Patreon family.
