In 2020 I reopened my online shop and updated my look. When I first opened my shop in 2016, I sold hand-made jewelry. I closed my online shop because I sold more in person than online. Recently, my creativity has gravitated toward graphic design and illustration and I rebuilt my online shop.
While being laid off as a graphic artist at my local newspaper during Covid 19 pandemic, I had some time to think about my life purpose and how I can apply my artistic skills differently. I still like creating hand-made items, like my copper wire jewelry, but I really love the digital design process. I love the versatility and the endless possibilities. I apply my graphic design to print on demand products. I provide a range of products such as accessories, clothing, home décor, wall art and jewelry.
My main production partners are Art of Where, Printify, and Printful. All products that I apply my designs to are made in either Canada or the United states. Many of my designs are eco-friendly. Print on demand means that products are not created until an order is made, which also helps reduce excess production.
Recently I have been working in an interior design business, which has my excited about interior design and my love for sewing. I look forward to learning more and bringing new projects to life.
I am inspired by creating quality items to be used in homes as a form of art therapy. The name I chose for my shop is based on the word 'Saturnalia', which describes a celebration of nature. I hope that my designs inspire others to love nature and will bring some uplifting colour into their homes.
