About Wishsong Design

Adding Joy and Colour to the World!

Hi and Welcome! My name is Jodie Blanchard and I love to paint and create colourful, fun and whimsical pictures for both children and adults alike. I began drawing at an early age, particularly animals and anything nature oriented. I love to spend hours perfecting each piece of artwork I do and enjoy every minute of it! After many years of realistic animal and pet portraits I finally gained enough courage to step out and explore my imagination to create images full of bright colours and fantasy themes, with a dream one day to illustrate children's story books.

I paint all my artwork the old fashioned way, using the finest quality watercolours and watercolour paper only, no digital painting. I love the texture and feel of a handpainted artwork! I also occasionally paint with acrylics on canvas for my wildlife artworks as well as chalk pastels. I sell both the originals and archival prints in my store.

All my prints are fine art giclee and are archival, guaranteed 100+ years if framed and cared for properly. They are printed on a Canon IPF5100 commercial large format printer which uses archival pigment inks. I only use the best quality fine art papers from Hahnemuhle and Harman by Hahnemuhle all with a gsm of 300 or more. All processes from painting to the final printing process are completed by me in my home studio.

I also love to sew artist bears and art dolls! From felt toys and brooches to my ever popular yetis to my detailed art dolls and unicorns! Each one is either handsewn by me or sewn using the sewing machine. Many details are hand painted and hand embellished. All my art is created only by me and within my own home studio!
