As my first blog post of 2018,
I wanted to post something dear to my heart...
As a mother of 3 myself, creating art with pregnant women is such a wonderful, maternal way to for us to bring art to the entire experience of carrying a child!
A little while ago, I was privileged to work with a wonderful young woman
on a very special project.
She was the winner of the grand prize that I gave away at my booth during Birthfair 2017!
A full Belly Paint & Phtoshoot!
I wanted to create something wonderful for her!
I came up with the theme
She was thrilled & we decided to wait until Spring had sprung & the trees were in full leaf.
The following photos are the magic that happened!
I hope you enjoy & please feel free to share my blog & subscribe!
What an amazingly creative day! We had so much fun!
Here are a few behind the scenes images taken by my former high school art teacher
& my friend, Sally Rees!

Recently, I was asked to be involved in an amazing trade show in Cloverdale, BC Canada called Birth Fair!
All ticket sale proceeds of Birth Fair went to the BC Women's Hospital Foundation!
A few weeks ahead of the show I helped out with their promotion by painting nine pregnant bellies to spell out BIRTH FAIR. This event was held at Buy Buy Baby in Langley.
At the show in Cloverdale, I had a booth showcasing my photography and my pregnant belly painting! Check out the little video & write up about me in the Surrey Leader news paper!
Over the two days of the show I was able to paint six pregnant bellies
and do mini maternity photo sessions with these awesome ladies!
We were lucky that there was a park right next door to the venue! It snowed the second morning to, so we had quite the variety in backdrops, lol :)
Tiffany was the first belly I painted with a white scroll work theme ...
Next was Roben with a sweet little Bear ...
Then lovely Amber with a pretty custom Safari, rose theme for baby Bella ❤
The second day, after a night of snowfall, I started with the stunning Kayla & her sweet baby elephant belly paint...
I made a super cute blooper reel with Kayla & her hubby who was my official fabric thrower for her shoot!
Next painting was a white tiger cub for Jen, a former face painting student of mine!
And our last belly paint of the show was the vibrant Lori-Ann who let me paint what ever my heart desired, so I came up with a multi colored background for a
Tree of Life dream catcher :)
This was such a wonderful event! I look forward to next year!
