Welcome to Wendy's Pure Canadian Design Blog

Hello and welcome,

My name is Wendy. I am a single mom of 4 (ages 8, 20, 23, and 26). I am a cat lover and owner of three rescued cats (ages 1, 5 and 11).

Do you have a dream job? I found my niche in Web design. I create websites to sell your products and services. Also, I love creating enhanced photos from pictures I take. The ragdoll cat in the background is one of my favourites that I enhanced.

In July 2016, I completed the Enterprise Web and Mobile Development program at triOS College and an internship with Stiller ADT as a Web Developer. (Sept 2014 - July 2016)

Currently I work from home as a freelance web and graphic designer for my business "Pure Canadian Design". I specialize in creating customized, WordPress e-Commerce websites for small and home-based businesses.

Follow me on my journey in Web and Graphic Design.

2015 is coming to a close... many new opportunities to look forward to in the New Year !!!

In 2015, I got my beginners to drive and I created some cool websites, apps and graphic designs. It has been a pretty good year so far for me.

I have been working hard this year on all sorts of projects in various computer languages. PHP, Python, Ruby on Rails and C++ were quite the challenge. It was great creating mobile apps for Android and iOS. I am still struggling with some of the development languages but thoroughly enjoying the designing elements. HTML5 and CSS3 are becoming second nature. I like using Bootstrap to create gorgeous responsive web pages.

I am currently working on an app in C#...I think I'd like to make a simple game this time. I like the challenge of coding then diving into Photoshop to customize my apps with my own designs.

As much as I'm trying to become a "Java Master" it doesn't come to me as easily as Web Design. I won't give up on it just yet. I'm hoping I will wake up one day and it will all make sense. You know that moment when the light bulb inside your head turns on. I look forward to that day as I keep learning more and more about Web and Mobile development.

I am looking forward to some exciting things going on in the new year as well. I am going on a 4 month internship in March. I will be finished my Enterprise Web and Mobile Development program in July. I will be launching my official website for my freelance business in the Spring. I am looking forward to finding a career in something I absolutely love doing...web design/development. And to top it all off I have a grand baby on the way...due in June/July 2016.

It's going to be an exciting year with the possibility many more exciting opportunities. I wish the best for your New Year as well. Happy Holidays.

~ Wendy
