I began drawing with graphite at age 14. I also danced competitively throughout highschool. From 1992=1997, I attended the University of Waterloo were I recieved an Honours Bachelor of Applied Health Science in Therapeutic Recreation. I began drawing again while travelling and working extensively thoughout Asia. After returning to Canada I began taking courses in drawng and painting. Currently I balance my art career with a full time job and a busy young family. I am a mixed media artist. My art work combines many mediums, specifically acrylic paint and mediums, collage, gel transfers, pastel and charcoal. I paint both abstract and figurative pieces. My inspiration comes from my drawings, my love of travel texture and vibrant colour. I have sold paintings locally and internationally.
