I am a self-taught artist who utilizes my passion for self-expression and intuition to develop a diverse portfolio of mixed-media art. My journey began over 20 years ago, experimenting with acrylic paints, creating meaningful pieces to connect my community and surroundings. Over the years I've had the privilege of having my art exhibited in many galleries throughout Ontario including a piece entitled, “Feather Dream” that was featured in the Ontario Legislative Assembly of Ontario Building. I feel most at home and the strongest sense of connection through my art community.
I continue to connect with each piece of work differently rendering each one unique and original not only in its presentation but in its meaning. My inspiration comes heavily from nature, birds and people. I love the audience to see something in my work that they recognize but in a different way, something familiar but through abstract shapes and colours. Being a mixed-media artist gives me the freedom to explore all mediums and express ideas without limitations, to keep the floodgates of my inspiration open.
Currently drawn to creating with different media including watercolours, acrylic and oil paints, I always enjoy going back to playing with alcohol inks and resin, the bright bold colours of the ink and the beautiful glass-like finish from the resin makes the creation process so intriguing. I work from my home studio and sell my art through various art auctions, exhibits and markets.
