Hi there! I'm so glad you're here.

A BIT ABOUT MY ART

My artwork stems from a place of freedom, possibility, and learning to move towards the truest version of myself. From the bold strokes of the paintbrush to the textures on the canvas, each piece conveys a story and expresses what words can't.

 

Always highly observant, I am especially interested in the ways our unique environments inform our identity. I enjoy playing with juxtaposition and contrast within my work. It makes me think about how we all hold many different, sometimes opposite, attributes that can exist all at the same time.

A BIT ABOUT MY INSPIRATION

I am inspired by all sorts of things: the order and chaos of nature (particularly the Canadian prairies where I grew up), patterns and textiles, the movement of music, conversations, architecture, graphic design, and memories from childhood. Drawing from the shapes, lines, patterns, and feelings observed in both natural and urban settings, I aim to communicate a sense of curiosity, growth, and momentum balanced with contentment and grounding.

 WHAT MAKES YOU COME ALIVE?

I believe we should always be on the lookout for things that light us up. Here are a few of mine!

A BIT ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada, where I received my degree in Education. I was an elementary school teacher before relocating to Toronto, Ontario. I am a summer baby and a nature lover. My favourite childhood memories were spent at Emma Lake, Saskatchewan, watching sunsets, canoeing, and being in the water.

 

My current life in Toronto leaves me missing the wide-open spaces of the prairie landscape, the endless sky, the meandering rivers, and the rugged wilderness of the north. All of these natural elements of chaos and calm find their way onto the canvas.
