Where’s your favourite place in New Brunswick to grab a coffee?

A great cup of strong coffee is one of my favourite things in the world. Great places to grab a great cup is East Point Starbucks, Java Moose on Prince William St, and of course right in my own home.

Where’s your favourite place in New Brunswick to grab a pint?

Well, since I'm not much a 'pint grabber' I'd have to say the best place would be a beer at my sister’s cottage in St. Andrews. There is nothing better than a BBQ, a beer, a comfy chair with a great ocean view. Also, the Saint John Alehouse has a great selection and atmosphere especially outside along boardwalk in the summer.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in New Brunswick?

To me shopping should be fun plus I love surprises. I love Winner's- it's like an archaeological dig every time. You never know what secret goodies you are going to find. I could pour over magazines and books at Indigo Book Store in Saint John for hours not to mention playing in the most awesome toy corner in any store!

Where in New Brunswick would we stand to see your favourite view?

Anywhere along the Kennebecasis River from Renforth all the way to Darlings Island. It's even better in the fall. I love the Renforth Boat Club at sunset. It's has a gorgeous view.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit New Brunswick:

1. Saint John City Market for treats and tasty eats. I love to grab a coffee and just look around.

2. Hanging out by the ocean like at Parlee Beach. 

3. The covered bridges especially the one on Darlings Island. It's my favourite. 

What makes New Brunswick such a special place on earth for you?

 I moved back here after a 22 year absence 6 months ago and it is nice to be back home. I grew up on Darlings Island and partly in Quispamsis. It's beautiful, it's scenic, it's memory filled and it's home.

  1. Wow! I just checked out your website. If I could use only one word to describe your illustrations, I would use; 'Whimsical'. And I LOVE whimsy.
