Feature: Colourful Paintings of Montreal Houses and Neighborhoods

Feature: Montreal artist and illustrator Michelle Darwin

Montreal artist and illustrator Michelle Darwin draws and paints portraits of Montreal neighbourhoods, laneways, houses, and buildings. She founded her company, Painted Stories as a creative house for her hand-crafted paintings and illustrations.

Based in the Plateau area of Montreal, Michelle loves to wander local neighbourhoods looking for interesting sights to capture in her paintings and drawings. She recently began a series of playful illustrations of Montreal houses and hopes to spend the warmer months creating portraits of local gardens and green laneways. In addition to a range of personal works – many for sale as originals or prints – she also runs a business, Painted Stories, through which she creates custom artwork for clients.

Painted Stories is based around the idea that custom paintings of favourite city place or home are a perfect way to remember, celebrate and cherish the places that are important to us. Michelle loves working with clients who are looking to express the personality of a special place through a custom painting. Custom paintings are often inspired by an aspect of a client’s personal or family history, a celebration of a current milestone, or an important life event – such as selling a family home, a wedding, anniversary, or an illness in the family. Her illustrations make wonderful, heartfelt and truly unique gifts for someone special and are sure to be cherished for years to come.

Painted Stories specializes in:

  •  Watercolour paintings and illustrations
  • Gouache paintings
  • Lively drawings with pen and/or ink
  • Paintings of places with a personal story

While houses make up the bulk of Michelle’s subjects, she’s more than happy to create portraits of any building or place that has personal meaning: a library, wedding venue, neighborhood, cottage, garden, city landmark, church, or shop.

Postcards and prints of Montreal neighborhoods and houses will be available soon on Etsy.

A Montreal mom designer and entrepreneur created something that we can all use.

Freelancer, graphic designer and new mom of a little angel called Nicholas. She decided to create something creative (during her not so often free moments on maternity leave)

She  wanted to keep milestones of everything her child did, especially in his first year, knowing many other parents feel the same way.

Petit Capikou

Some people love scrapbooking, yet she feel it’s very time consuming. She wanted something quick, easy, creative and memorable.

There were some cards out there, but nothing really stood out to her. She wanted to create something more unique and trendy.

She decided to create Milestone Cards.

Milestone Cards are a great easy way to capture all the special moments.

Happy easter 😊! #babycards #momlife #babymilestonecards #parenthood #easter #happyeaster #easterideas

 Here is how it works

There are 27 baby milestone cards which cover milestones from the birth of your child all the way to their first birthday. You simply take pictures of your baby’s milestones and match them to the Milestone Card. This way, you will never forget the day your baby laughed for the first time, ate solid food or said “mama”. On the back of the cards, you can write details and memories of each of these special moments in your little one’s life.
