Portrait of a Chickadee


This piece is about the innocence of being where our feet are.

As a child, I often drew clouds and rainbows. It just felt so happy and so safe. Maybe it was a coping skill to block out the fear of what was going on around me.

Sometimes I think it might be healthier and a bit more sane to be "the one" with my "head in the clouds".

Chicadees don’t care about the happenings of the White House or Congress or Afghanistan.

They are present.

This moment is confirmation that it is perfectly ok to be where you are. It is ok to feel your peace and your joy, even with so many unknowns happening all around you.

It's ok to be anxious, just realise that you can be anxious and peaceful and joyful at the same time. It can all live at once. Just because you feel anxious, it doesn’t have to steal your peace and joy.

Portrait of a Chicadee

  • Each piece is printed on cotton canvas. I then hand paint them with metallics and iridescent embellishments, so no two paintings are ever exactly the same. The added touches truly make the pieces come alive.

    The mat and acrylic frame make this piece 11X14 inches. 

    The mat colour is white. Mat only option is 11x14inches

    The 16x20 Glicee is hand detailed with acrylic on canvas and the canvas is wrap around, so there is no frame. If the 16x20 Glicee is out of stock, please message or email me and I will be happy to order for you. It takes about 2-3 weeks to recieve if out of stock. If it is showing in stock, you will recieve in about 5-7 days. 

    The 16x20 Original is the Original Painting; Oil on Canvas and does not include a frame. 

    Each print will include the written description adhered to the back of the frame so it can be taken off the wall as a reminder any time you need a bit of encouragement.

    Having artwork with affirmative words of encouragement have been instrumental in my own healing journey, and I am honored to pass on the opportunity to you as well.
