Studio Update


Smudge Herring: Just Keep Swimming is already swimming out the door to adorn new walls! The edition of 25 + 3 Trial Proofs and 1 Bon a Tirér are matted and available in the online shop. The weather has been too grey to take their picture since finishing them up- as soon as I see the sun, there will be new pictures on the website!


Smudge Herring: Just Keep Swimming on the press.

My trusty Studio Assistant, Taylor, and I are in the midst of #printapalooza again- printing cards, mini-prints, and bookmarks in our regular line-up of colours and designs. So far, we’ve finished red, red-blue, and we’re back in black today. We’d love for you to stop by to show you a little printmaking in action!

#printapalooza is what I call a big print run of Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks in each of the standard colours (red, red-yellow, orange, red-blue, blue, blue-green, green, black, and grey) and all the 30-something different designs! We’ll be printing a thousand or so pieces in the next couple of weeks!

Norton’s Cove Studio is open
10am – 6pm Wednesday through Saturday
10am – 3pm Sunday

The online shop is open 24/7 of course,
and you can choose to have your items shipped to you,
or you can ‘pick-up in-store’

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio


Work-in-progress: this Smudge Herring lino-cut plate was started last year, and was put aside to make space for other work. I started working on this again yesterday, and am happy with how it’s looking so far- see next image…
I’m planning to print these fishies a couple of different ways- as a regular edition of prints, but also as an installation piece (printed on silk panels) for a gallery exhibit that I am going to propose called UNDERNEATH.

I finally finished my #printapalooza printing sessions this week, and already I am running low on some colours/designs with the increase in traffic that I’m starting to see here at the studio. So that means that a new print-run will be starting again soon! And I’ve made a little change to my cards this year: I have a new stamp for the backs which I think looks much better than the sticker and is more environmentally friendly. So the next time you see a Norton’s Cove Card, flip it to check the back!

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio


On the morning of July 1st, we remember all those who have worked so hard to make this world a better place. And on Canada Day, I am thankful to have been born in a country where we have the right to keep on fighting for the rights of us all, and to keep making things better with each generation.

Rope Mats by Duke, starting at just $25, and half of the proceeds will be donated to IBEC to help fund their beach clean-ups in the area!

Duke will be showing visitors how to make his popular thump mats from reused ropes found on our beautiful shores. Stop by the studio from 2-4 today to make your own rope mat! This event is free and for all ages. Feel free to bring your own rope, or use ours!


I am still packaging Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks to fill my shelves and a few orders going out around the province. That means I have lots of time to chat with visitors while I’m scoring, folding, stamping logos, stuffing envelopes, and water-colouring the printed images! Do drop in for a visit.

Saturday Night at the Studio

There’s a whole lotta watercolouring goin’ on!

Still heavy on Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks production here at Norton’s Cove Studio. I’ve got most of my #printapalooza packaging done and the new products are in the shelves and on their way to other retail venues in the province, but I still have a big pile of prints waiting for watercolour to be added. One of my favourite jobs.

Hot off the press: These lino-cut relief prints will be scored, folded, a writing liner paper and an envelope inserted to become Norton’s Cove Cards.

So far in 2021, we have printed 156 bookmarks, 1,318 cards, and 857 mini-prints. And I know that it won’t be long after I get this batch packaged that I’ll have to start #printapalooza all over again, as I am already running low on some images & colours again. Which design is your favourite?

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio


#printapalooza is my name for a full print-run of Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, & Bookmarks in all the designs and all the colours! Red, Red-Yellow (shown), Orange, Red-Blue, Blue, Blue-Green, Green, Grey, & Black.

I have been working away at #printapalooza, as I have orders due to be shipped to shops next week, and I have also been spending quite a lot of time in my office, working on an export plan with the help of NLOWE‘s GATEWAY to Trade program. I realize that I need to expand my market and double my art sales in order to call Norton’s Cove Studio a successful business. And I am determined to make that happen.

With the aim of promoting exactly that, I would love to see those of you who already have a piece of my art in your personal or office collection to post a picture of it and share it with your social media peeps. It would be really great if some of you who are considered influencers would take part, to really help get some bigger reach. I’ve devised a little contest: the prize will be a custom order of artwork, made just for you, and we’ll use up the whole month of June, with a winner drawn from the entries on July 1st. Here’s what you need to do to play:

  • post a picture of your Janet Davis artwork on twitter, Instagram, or your blog
  • each post is a new entry
  • use the hashtag #JanetDavisArt
