Mountsberg Raptor Centre

As a belated birthday present to myself and to show around some relatives, a few days ago we all went over to the Mountsberg Raptor Centre on one of their private tours you can book, which was super fun and gave us a behind-the-scenes look at how they feed and care for a variety of birds, including their Shrike Recovery Program.

Part of the private tour was a personal educational session and we also got a chance to hold a raptor! I was so thrilled to get a chance to have a barn owl on my gloved fist, his name is Shadow and there is nothing more magical in this world than having a barn owl stare into your eyes and then chuckle at you.

Exploring the Great White North: Yukon and Alaska Trip

This summer I made good on a promise to a fellow artist friend of mine to go up north and visit her in Whitehorse, which is the capital of the Yukon.

Copywriting: The Unsung Hero of Web Design

I have been making websites for ten plus years and one of the most common mistakes clients make when coming to me to design a website is telling me:

“Design the site now and we’ll figure out the written content later.”

The number one reason that clients do this is because they don’t have any content to speak of to put on their website, but they still want to go ahead and get themselves a website, for whatever reason. This is problematic to ensuring good workflow (see info box below) for a number of reasons

Meet the Crafters at FanExpo

Last year at FanExpo, I was interviewed by some lovely gentlmen from Geek and Sundry, who I talked to for about five mins and they used a short clip from that interview in their video about the crafters in the Artist Alley at FanExpo. I am thrilled that they decided to include me in their video, and even though you don’t see the rest of our conversation, thanks all the same for the very thoughtful questions and the opportunity to talk about my art.
