I’ve been working on this project since the beginning of summer, and it is finally up!
I can’t believe it! I spent so much time on this project, and I am so proud of how much my paintings have improved. The calendar features some of my best work and favourite paintings.
I hope you’ll visit the shop, if only to see the different pictures I shared there. I will slowly update my portfolio as well so that each painting is nicely featured. Some of the calendar pages will also be turned into prints and cards and other fun things, but the calendar is a bargain. You basically get 12 prints for a little bit more than the price of 1, plus a wooden hanger, stickers and the calendar grids.
I am lucky enough that my partner is a woodworker, and he was able to make the pine wood hangers that solved all my binding problems. I came up with the solution, and he was kind enough to make the wooden parts at just the right size.
I also made some stickers so that you can personalize the calendar to your life. I’ve included moon phases, birthdays, important dates and other cute symbols.
To make it all even more special, I also added some descriptions to the back of each page. I summoned my poetess heart and wrote some whimsical little paragraphs describing the animals and plants featured in each painting. I hope these little stories will make you even more curious about the natural world and make you want to explore and observe.
I really like the idea that you will have 12 prints and that you will be able to display them once 2023 is over.
And if you are wondering what I’ll be doing for the rest of 2022, well, I’ve started work for the Lunar New Year! Next year will be the year of the rabbit, or the cat in Vietnam. I jumped at this opportunity to paint cats, and I’m excited to create a few pieces for the occasion.
The regular newsletter will be back next week, but I just couldn’t wait to tell you about the calendar!

Take care 🧡🧡🧡
