At Cougar Chid Decor our focus is on creating, inspiring and sharing our love of all things DIY and crafty with the world.
Cougar Chic Decor was born in 2013 shortly after I discovered my love for chalk paint! It ignited a creative fire in me that I hadn’t known before. I went to work painting everything I could get my hands. I soon realized that I wanted to take this passion to the next level and Cougar Chic Decor was created.
It wasn’t long before I quit my full-time job and jumped into this creative endeavour with both feet. I’m happy to say that I’ve never looked back. I love creating, inspiring and teaching others. Stop by Cougar Chic Decor today and get creating!
Let’s rewind a bit?
I feel blessed to have amazing parents. My folks were ranchers and my dad was an artist. My Mom busied herself raising my brother & me and running my Father’s art gallery. They taught me the value of working hard and loving what you do!
Some of my favourite memories as a child are of painting with my Dad and garage-saleing with my Mom, Aunties and Grandma. These ladies taught me the value of a dollar and how to dicker for every little penny. I learned to see the potential in garage sale treasures. Under the layers of chippy paint or lack thereof lay a masterpiece waiting to be created. We had many laughs and ‘start the car’ adventures!
Our Storefront / DIY Studio
We turned my Dad’s old art gallery into my ‘Cougar Chic Decor’ studio. I have it set up as a store and DIY teaching studio, full of custom furniture, decor, FAT paint, unique hardware and so much more. It is the cutest, cosiest log cabin.
I love finding that perfect old piece with all her chips and scratches and years of wear and turning her into a beautiful, sought after piece. It’s like the ugly duckling story, she was always beautiful you just couldn’t see it.
I love sharing this passion with others through workshops and offering DIY products to bring out the creativity in you.
In 2014, my girlfriend Jenny and I launched “The Alberta Dames Modern Vintage Shindigs”. We both loved going on road trips travelling to vintage markets and flea markets and wanted to bring local Canadian artists & makers together in Alberta to showcase their goodies.
We want to help business owners and attendees “get their fun back” by exploring and sharing the work of small, passionate creators. Vendors at the Dames Market sell anything from antique furniture to handmade jewellery and everything in between. You were guaranteed to find one of a kind, handmade items from local vendors.
Iron Orchid Designs
In 2018 I joined Iron Orchid Designs to become their Canadian distributor. I am so thrilled to bring you their amazing DIY line to my fellow Canadian creators. Their line of decor image transfers, decor stamps & decor moulds will knock your socks off. The IOD sisters believe we are uniquely created to create uniquely and they aim to inspire, empower and encourage other to do just that.
We sell a wide range of IOD products online and in store. If you don’t see what you are looking for, send us a message and we’ll see what we can do to get you creating.
Our Storefront / DIY Studio
I am blessed to be raising my family on the ranch that I grew up on just north of Cochrane, AB. My husband Ronnie and I have three beautiful children: Kael, Tayla & Isabel. I can not imagine living anywhere else. Here we wake up every morning looking at the Rocky Mountains.
I am fortunate to have a wonderfully supportive family who encouraged me to follow my crazy dream. I hope I have shown them how to follow their dreams and to do what they love. As my Dad use to say, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life!”

I love putting together workshops, they are one of my favorite things to do! Plan a team building event or get your girls together for a night out, or in. The workshops take place at your house, or at my Storefront, and can either be a group teens, or it can be a group of women (and men if they want to join!). We can pick out the projects together and then I will supply all the materials. Contact me today to discuss your workshop event!
