So, when we found out she was selling prints we just knew we had to share them with you here.
Her art is full of free spirits, vibrant colors, and our favorite summer past-times.
For prints, or just to view more of her work, you can visit Alexandra’s website.
We LOVE our gemstones.
Come into the store and you’ll find decorative crystals by our register, geode and quartz crystal earrings, and fire agate necklaces.
So when we found these beautiful paintings by Carly Waito, we simply fell in love.
The paintings you see here are just a small selection of her work. To see more painted gems please visit her website.
Toronto-based artist Carly Waito was born in Manitouwadge, Ontario in 1981 and raised in Thunder Bay. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, she co-founded the ceramic art and design studio coe&waito with Alissa Coe in 2005. The partnership is known for its elegant products and sculptural installations inspired by the natural world. As a painter, Waito has continued to pursue this inspiration, with a focus towards geology, geometry and ideas of wonder and curiosity. These themes are uniquely encompassed by the tiny mineral specimens which have become her particular focus.
On my way to the bar I wonder, why do I keep walking this path? Isn’t that always a girl in front of a mirror ? Is it going to lead anywhere?
Marie-Sophie looks like Cleopatra tonight, the waitress a mermaid…
I’ve been taking backstage pictures of burlesque for a couple of years now.
“Are you ok with me taking pictures while you get ready?” I ask.
In the basement of l’Abreuvoir, between beer barrels and the toilets, in a space of one metre by one metre, magic happens.
I’m looking for a detail, which will open a door to a world full of bright red hair and sparkly lashes, where jellyfishes are electric and women birds!
I float… and I leave before the curtain goes up.

Mori Girl Fan Art by Chico, CA Artists Hana and Mali
Local sister duo Hana and Mali Jones are artists with a love for all things creative and unique, especially when it comes to fashion. Both are currently attending Butte College where they are studying studio arts, graphic design, and fashion design.
Hana’s first job was working with the Three Sixty Ecotique, and has since been inspired to continue her long-term goal of becoming a fashion designer. Mali has always had a gift for graphic design and a keen eye for unique style, so it only makes sense that they join forces.
Designer Lu Flux has her own quirky romantic stake in the sustainable fashion movement. She sources all her materials locally in London where she is located, so you might think that that would limit her creative output, but you’d be mistaken. We can’t decide which we love more, her patchwork dresses or her bear jumpers. We’re keeping our eyes on her upcoming collections…
Orly Cogan is a textile artist who finds antique textiles and recreates them with her fantastical scenery and labor intensive embroidery. She sees herself as a “collaborator” with women of the past who began the textile projects decades earlier. Her mysterious narratives are lovely indeed.
