Throughout my life, Ihave pursued some form of creative expression - studying piano and trying out various artistic crafts as a child, to drawing and painting as an adult. My love of nature and concern for the planet informs my paintings. Inspiration can come at any time, so I always have my phone or a camera with me in case something says, paint me. Working in acrylic, oil, Chinese Ink, and watercolour, my paintings often incorporate various mediums and objects to create textural interest and a little bit of magic. In part self-taught, I also completed courses at Haliburton School of the Art and received training with renowned Canadian artist, Pat Fairhead, R.C.A..
