My goal as an artist is to create beautiful paintings that evoke emotion in people. All of my work is made with the intention that the viewer will feel something inside that they can connect with.
I work with acrylic paint and various acrylic mediums on canvas. Acrylic is very versatile, dries quickly and allows me to experiment, which I love to do!
I was born in Windsor Ontario and moved to British Columbia at the age of 8.
For the most part I am self taught and am fortunate to come from a creative family that has always encouraged and inspired me to express myself in artistic ways. In the past I have had careers and schooling as an actor, make up artist and as a personal trainer. During that time I would always find time for painting, drawing and studying art.
From 1999-2004 I began casually showing and selling my work in cafe’s in and around Vancouver BC. In 2008 after the birth of my son I decided a career as a professional full time artist was what I wanted to pursue. I’ve since successfully painted many commissions and sold original works both on-line and locally. Realizing the importance of connecting with nature, my community , fellow artists and art lovers was a big reason for my move from Vancouver to the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.
I presently live and work out of my home studio in Sechelt BC.
I am available for commissioned work and would love to work with you on creating the perfect painting and color scheme for any room in your home.
