bio pic 2.jpg

Born in 1977 in Ontario, Canada.

I am a self-taught painter working primarily with watercolour. I love to experiment with all sorts of mediums so often toss some gouache and acrylic into the mix as well. I have always been drawn to art and the arts. Back in the olden days my parents were told by my high school science teacher to "keep her in the arts". Right on, guy! Give me books about artists, documentaries about artists, movies about artists, more more more.  A few years ago I was flipping through a home interiors magazine and realized i wasn't really looking at the room designs, I was squinting to see the art on the walls.  

I’m a hardcore Pisces and love to hang out inside my head. Major daydreamer. I dream and paint about places i have been to and have yet to explore, the wildness of nature, memories. I paint expressionistically because I like to create how those places and memories feel/felt to me. What I love about abstract painting is that the story is different to every viewer. You see what you want or need to see in that moment. It's not a certain image that invokes an emotion but colour and movement instead.

Also, I’ve been bitten by a rabbit and a dolphin. On the same finger.
