These four fridge magnets are reproductions of my original acrylic paintings taken from high quality professional fine art scans. The magnets measure between 2 and 4 inches in a semi-gloss vinyl finish with colours that pop.

The series represents how queer women* have been referred to, often without our knowledge or consent. Some of the words have been used in hatred, like the angry man who spits “dyke” at a woman in a tie, and sometimes in well-intentioned ignorance, like the mother who takes an apologetic tone when she says about her daughter, “oh she’s just a tomboy”. Queer women have had varying reactions to these labels - sometimes we reclaim them as a badge of honour, and sometimes we are crushed beneath their weight. The series is intended to make room for both discomfort and celebration.
Works are carefully packaged for shipping in reused packaging materials to reduce the environmental footprint associated with getting my work safely to buyers. You may see the occasional cereal box logo in the packaging of your purchases from my shop, but you can feel good about knowing that waste is minimized in this way.
* I identify as a queer genderqueer woman and the series is painted from that point of view. However, if it appeals to folks in the broader LGBTQ2IA+ community who don't identify with the label "queer women", that's room for even more celebration in my book!
