Hello I'm Ginette, I do graphic design, art, illustration and surface pattern design.
Here on my blog you can see the pictures i've been making, stuff I've been up to and the inspiration I found in my current home Whistler, Canada.
You can also view my portfolio for more of my design work, find out about bespoke wedding stationary and take a look at the cards and screenprints for sale in my shop.

Here is a pair of magpies from an illustration series I'm working on about good luck. I'm having a lot of fun researching superstitions and getting lucky! The rhyme about magpies goes "One for sorrow, Two for joy, Three for a girl, Four for a boy, Five for silver, Six for gold, Seven for a secret never to be told." Luckily you can avoid the sorrow of seeing a lone magpie by 'doffing your cap' and saying “Good morning Mr Magpie. How is your lady wife today?” I think I might start doffing my cap more often...

Here is a collection of recent snaps of 'people enjoying the scenery'. From Whistler mountains and lakes to Stanley Park, via Tofino and The Chief. Enjoying the scenery has been my main activity this summer, it's very enjoyable and surprisingly easy, anyone can give it a go!

Last summer I took the Make it in Design Summer School online, I reall enjoyed all the amazing trend inspiration and created lots of patterns! Here is my Treasure Souk pattern collection mocked up on a stylish dress and featured in the Summer School Lookbook. I was inspired by the rich, bold colours and decorative patterns of an exotic market somewhere in Turkey or Morocco.
