Check out Etsy Canada's new landing page for our nation-wide day of pop-up shops on September 26, 2015 #MadeinCanada - it includes a profile of me and my shop! You can have a sneak peek at my studio and namesake imperious feline, Minouette. I'm flattered to represent the community with such amazing talent in our group of Canadian Etsy sellers! You can find your nearest show in the main #MadeinCanada page.

I'm flattered to be included in geophysicist and science writer Mika McKinnon's great round-up of women of science bringing science to the public via twitter - including #SciArt. If you're seeking some fascinating people to follow, her list, like the ones she links to, are a good place to start (with plenty of kick-ass women in STEM to boot)!

Our Made in Canada show was a huge success! It was overwhelming. I think we had 8000 visitors. The Toronto Standard interviewed me about it and life as geophysicist/printmaker

I am going to have a 5' by 10' booth at the Christmas One of a Kind for the first time this year. We're scheming about how best to build it, and currently working at 5" by 10"! #OOAKDiaries

If you're in Austin, TX this fall be check out 'Go Ahead And Do It: Portraits of Women in Science' at Art.Science.Gallery! They have a great line up of participating artists - and that's my portrait of Ada, Countess Lovelace on their poster! I sent two large boxes with my collection of women in STEM linocuts.

I let the Princeton Molecular Bio science outreach group use my coffee with caffeine molecule linocut print to promote their chemistry of a perfect cup of coffee event. Such an important science topic! I simply asked for a copy of the poster. They sent me coffee too, clever people!

I'm working on a portrait of Caroline Herschel. She was the first salaried, professional female scientist. She was hired as her more famous brother William Herschel's assistant, but made her own important astronomical discoveries, including 8 or 9 comets, 2 galaxies and 11 or 12 other nebulae and or star clusters previously unknown to astronomers. She also make a systematic index to Flamsteed's star catalogues, and got her brother interested in systematic 'sweeps' of the heavens, to look for nebulae, which ultimately led to his discovery of Uranus. I've spent days trying to find reference images of her comets and managed to find her own notes and drawings recording the discovery of her first comet on 1 August 1786!
