I Love To Paint & Design Beautiful Things
I was born in Ottawa, Canada. I began my adult career as a graphic artist, but in 2011 decided to pursue my passion for art by returning to school. In June of 2018,
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from Brock University. As part of the honours program, I was part of an elite group of students that were given studio space at Rodman Hall, a local historical gallery in St. Catharines. The year of studio work culminated in a group exhibition in April of 2017. I have been juried into several shows, and my work can be found in private collections in Canada and Germany.
I have come to realize whether thought of as a pastime, pleasure or passion, painting is a fundamental skill that has been in development since I was very young. It has taken until now, in mid-life, for me to pursue my dream of painting in a dedicated studio full-time. Early in my career, I was a typesetter and graphic designer – this helped to develop and hone my skill of using interesting compositions. My favourite themes and subject matter are taken from nature, with fervent attention paid to light and colour values in a style that is a nod to the impressionists, but still my own. In late 2017, I began to use water-soluble oils as my favourite go-to media, but I still also enjoy the versatility of mixing acrylics with mediums and gels and using unexpected textures and matter in my work. Today, a large part of my pleasure comes from teaching other artists the skills they need to develop their own passions for painting.
