My name is Roberta and I live and work in beautiful central Alberta. I am a recent graduate of the Graphic Design program at Grant MacEwan, majoring in Illustration. I stay busy during the week at my day job as an in-house Graphic Designer and Marketing Coordinator for a local engineering firm, but my afternoons and weekends consist of much more artsy stuff.
My art is designed to make you smile and bring a little warmth and whimsy into your life. The name, Stuff and Things, comes from the constant question of what sort of art I make. The answer has always been hard for me to answer due to my nature of working with so many mediums. I found that I usually answered the question with: “Oh you know, stuff and things”.
So when trying to brand my artist-self, my wonderful boyfriend jokingly said, “Why not Stuff and Things?” I have been making art of some sort or another since I was very small, and really started to hone in on my skills during my university years. I began selling my art a few years ago when a friend talked me into joining her at a local art show. Since then I have enjoyed filling my spare time making fabric flowers and a whole assortment of different creations.
I hope you enjoy what you see here and keep visiting often as I am constantly updating this and my Etsy Shop.
Thank you for stopping by!
