Batman and Robin Slap Meme.Originally a large mosaic of mine, I have produced a high-quality print under glass that works perfectly with Dry-Erase marker. This is a total ‘fun’ctional piece.

We supply the art, you supply the pen and the creative sarcasm! It is perfect for a common area where everyone will see it daily.

Real Dragonfly Wings in Jewelry

Real dragonfly wings and hand-made paper in a necklace. Many colors to choose from, including yellow, lime, green, blue, orange, purple, pink and cream or white. On my walks on the farm, I come across dragonflies that have died. Their life cycle is very short but they live a good life on this property where I treat it like a wildlife preserve, encouraging bio-diversity and a healthy environment. I make the wings into necklaces; in this way, I raise funds to promise a healthy future for their next generation here. (More about the farm that I am preserving.)

$35 plus a few dollars for shipping, depending on where you live.

These necklaces contain hand-made paper (the coloured background), real dragonfly wings, silver-plated brass elements, and a lush, glossy surface. All made with love in my studio. Please contact me should you wish to order one; let me know your preferred color. Thank you.

Art Booth at ByWard Market, Ottawa, Canada


From May to October, I will be at my outdoor art booth in Ottawa’s famous ByWard Market on Saturdays and Sundays, weather permitting. I’d hate for you to waste a trip to see me so please check my status on Art By Choleena to know if I’m at the market the day you hope to visit. I may not be in the same location as when you saw me last — it is a random draw to ensure that we all have a chance at the best locations. I will put my location in my status.

Of course, my online Etsy shop is open 24-7!

New Home and Studio!

Farm-pond-daytime-mac-coffee-IMG_7592I’ve recently moved to the country and am enjoying being closer to nature. This photo is of the view from my studio in September, the month that I moved here. My morning coffee has never tasted better. 🙂

Nature is very inspiring. I’ve started a bird series. Chickadee has just been launched and it actually contains bits of the farm in it! It is a fundraiser to help us keep this beautiful 300-acre farm intact. I am making only 25 of these artworks. They are $95, including framing and tax. If you would like to enquire about the status of the edition, please contact me any time. Your support is humbly appreciated. (A little back story on the farm: we have stepped in during the threat of foreclosure and have come to an agreement with the bank and the township to get the property back on its feet.)

Below are a few shots through the autumn and winter seasons. I will post more when I’ve had a chance to setup. In the meantime, if you’re on Facebook, I’ve got “The Farm” album of photos up there already.

I hope to be part of the local studio tour and would be happy to send you an invitation. If you are not yet on my mailing list, you may subscribe here.
