This page has a few of my favorite products along with affiliate links, which means I get a small commission if you buy the item. I only include products that I love and/or use consistently in my art studio. I will be creating posts and YouTube videos about some of these products. So if you have questions, please email me so I can answer them in my content.
I use WHOOP this to monitor my Heart Rate Variability (HRV). HRV is a marker of recovery which is important to assess how much you can take on each day. I want to have energy for both my creative practice AND my hard training rides. I love that I can daily journal my habits and see what small tweaks will actually maximize my sleep and in turn improve my recovery so I can bike harder tomorrow.

Custom Frame Canada
Custom Frame Canada builds your frame with the exact height and width that you need and cuts the glass/plexi/board. I've bought several sized frames from them and they work great! Shipping was fast and price was better than my usual art store or big box store.
Here is the referral link to their shop. I get a small commission for each frame sold. https://www.customframescanada.ca/?ref=gzss1ouqka
Art to Print
I get A LOT of questions about printing. Most of it is from my 16 years of running a business and owning a printer every step of the way. I bought my first Epson art printer in 2006 and sold prints in 2 shops in Kamloops BC. Since then I've done print-on-demand and bought my own large format printer. Despite having experience in print I took Laurie Ann Gonzalez's course Art-to-Print. Printing is such a valuable but time consuming aspect of my business I want any tips I can to improve my business. Laurie's course has a lot of good information.
