New Website, Store, Auction & Workshops

So I thought I better post here. Been a while. Been so busy maintaining the many other social networks. I took a course in Carving for Reconciliation at Langara https://mylangaratrccarvingjourney.blogspot.ca.


The Sacred Panels https://zipolita.com/sacred-panels/
These sacred pieces were created to honor the children of the Residential Schools who never came home and those Survivors who live with the trauma the rest of their lives and also honor the Missing and Murdered Indigenous women.

 I learned so much and was so inspired so here is the result. It's a new website that will allow me to make and sell my art relatively easily. I am hoping. (Fingers crossed)


Well just wanted to share it here.

This is the new header. It's me if you see it.

I built my website in Wordpress with a child theme and I am going to use Ultimate Auction for the auctions that I do have and then in the store I am going to just post and put a photo and paypal button. I like to keep things simple. This isn't a massive operation...just me but I do have a huge body of work that I would like to sell...or not.  If no one buys maybe they will sit in the storage another 15 years like the Zipolite paintings and the Vancouver Heritage building photos or the Fairy photos..and I will pass them onto Angel.

But now I hope to sell carvings and prints.
That will be fun and other creative things as I make them.

Can I be honest. I never liked my old website. But I just didn't have the inspiration to re-build it until now. I really like the responsive mobile on my new website and I like how the slides shows display big so your can really see the image. https://zipolita.com/. Hope you like it too! Stay tuned.
