I was born in 1968 in Edmonton, Alberta and continue to make Edmonton my home with regular trips to the mountains and west coast for inspiration.
I graduated from the Fine Arts program at Grant MacEwan College and continued to study at the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1990 and a Bachelor of Education Degree in 2000.
Having worked as a graphic designer for over 20 years, I was eager to put the brush to the canvas again and began a full time career as an artist in 2010.
My work is represented in galleries across Canada and I am grateful for the opportunity to work from home as well as artist-in-residence opportunities through these galleries.
Because of my love of the mountains, hiking, canoeing and biking, I tend to create images that are reminders of personal experiences and I enjoy the satisfaction that comes when my art resonates with the viewer’s experience as well.
Acrylic is my medium of choice because of its fast-drying properties which gives me the ability to create layers of colour that allow for flexible and spontaneous changes.
