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 for sale in my shop.

I've been having some adventures in painting during my time in Canada, here are a few of the results, arranged with a trendy cactus. All done with acrylic paints, I only bought a few colours with me from home but luckily my new housemate revealed many boxes of art supplies she has stored in our basement so I can branch out with my colour palettes, hurruh! And maybe I'll get around to painting something more summery.

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!

Here are some colourful scenes from white and powdery days on Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, and also an early morning at Green Lake as the last of the ice was melting in spring.

The first full moon of the year was pretty in purple here in Whistler, it was also approx. minus a million degrees celsius, flippin' chilly!

The other day I went on a really fun hike to the train wreck near Function Junction. We followed the Cheakamus river with dramatic forest and waterfalls then found the old wrecked train carriages in the woods, covered in always-changing colourful graffiti. My friend Hannah has written all about our hike on her blog Bear Stories with lovely photos and lovely words, plenty more adventures to come on there.

Here are a couple of illustrations of Whistler. There are idyllic little cabins around every corner, and I spotted this one looking across Alta lake, with a canoe on the jetty and the descending snowline on Blackcomb mountain behind. Hopefully soon Whistler village will have a nice blanket of snow.

Last week in Whistler I went with chums to the Re-use It Centre, an amazing thrift store with anything you could want or need; retro ski gear, niknaks, cooking utensils and plenty of crutches for injuries on a budget. But what we really needed was exact change for the bus fare to get there, so the first purchase was a change collecting pot for future bus journeys. So we got the Sharpie markers out and I decorated mine with the forests and mountains and lakes that i'm going to visit when I collect lots of change. It turned out quite well so I made a little pattern collection too called 'Ticket to Ride'.
