The Cat’s Meow, Aug 26 2016


Well it has really been a whirlwind of a summer, lots of fun and so much sun. I’ve been booked solid for months now, I’m booking now for the beginning of November, with the exception of a few little tattoos I can probably squeeze in here and there (email me for a timeline). I’ve had some amazing pieces that I’ve been lucky enough to have had requested of me. Some awesome long term projects have begun.

I want to thank all of my current and future clients for being patient. I realize that a couple of months is a long time to wait for an appointment, it’s hard to wait when you’re excited, I totally understand! I’m one person, so I can only do so much. I am considering booking a few VIP days per month, reserved for some of my long time repeat clientele. I’ll keep everyone posted on that.

With gratitude,


This is my foot, I tattooed my daughters name on it this summer, so she painted hers to match. Grade 3 here she comes!



The Cats Meow, July 2016

maneki_neko_studioIt’s summer! Wow, is it busy at the shop this year. It’s mid-July and I’m already booking for September. The summer is not long enough! I finished up some renovations just in time for the 12 year anniversary of opening (on Canada Day), so my little aqua studio is now black and red, I love it! We have a new gaming cafe downstairs at the Granary, The Sword And The Scone. There have been several film crews taking over Port Hope over the last couple of months, they are currently filming Stephen King’s “It”. I’m working on illustrating a children’s book at the moment, more updates on that later! Myself and 4 other local artists will be taking part in painting 5 Little Free Libraries which will be placed around various areas of Port Hope in the Fall or early Spring. My daughter is 8 years old now!! I’ll be off Wednesdays all summer to spend the day with her, they grow up so fast. I’m fortunate to have had help building this website, what a load off my mind. Many thanks to Steve Smiley at Quench Design & Communications. Enjoy your summer everybody!
