Sea Urchins

I started out the morning cutting paper for my little 
BEACH SERIES: Sea Urchin, Starfish, Mussels, and Sand Dollars.

Mixed up some green ink for the first edition of prints, and started printing...

These will have a little bit of hand painting added before they're ready to be matted and framed.  

The printing plates are 7x7 inches, and the rice paper is 9x9 inches.  

Book Signing Event: PERISHED

Was it the name of the book that jinxed us with a snowstorm on April 19th?  I guess not, but for the few souls who did come out, not afraid of perishing in the storm, it was a lovely evening.  Here are some snaps taken by Phillip, the President of the Jenny Higgins Fan Club...

Jenny signs pre-sold copies, for people who knew they couldn't make the event.


Winston Perry is a Jenny Higgins fan!

Even the RCMP showed up!  


We still have books in stock, if you'd like to stop in to get a copy!

Spring is in the Air!

 There's been a lot of melting going on around Norton's Cove Studio this week, and the air has taken on a spring quality.  Just in time to energize me to start filling spring orders for my Norton's Cove Card product line.  I took a few orders in March at the Provincial Craft Wholesale Show, and I've been printing and packaging since then, with help from Ollie and Duke.  Today the first of the orders will be going out.  You'll find new product soon at...

This book is an emotional find for someone like me who is surrounded by the history of the seal hunt.  
Wesleyville was once known as "The home of the famous seal killers", and this book is filled with the stories of my predecessors.  I type this entry in Baxter Kean's office, looking at his photo in sealing attire on page 20.  Page 19 shows my husband's great grandfather, Frederick Kelloway, and the man standing next to him is surely a Sturge or a Winter... The book has pull out copies of sealing lists and other fascinating documents.

My congratulations to Jenny Higgins and Boulder Publications for putting together such a treasure of a book.
