It's so nice to meet you. When I'm not in the studio creating acrylic or watercolour paintings,  or buried under a pile of wool working on textile projects, you can find me organizing + instructing creative workshops. I have a passion for art education and I love providing you guys with valuable opportunities to explore your own creativity. 

I'm currently based in Kingston, Ontario with my partner, and we're embracing the military lifestyle. We're always outdoors, and you'll find my love of travelling and exploring this wonderful planet echoed in my artwork. From diving deep in ocean, surrounded by vibrant coral reefs and unbelievable creatures, jumping into rivers, kayaking on the coast, or wandering in lush green forests - I draw my inspiration from my travels, and the desire to help preserve and protect for our planet. New series coming soon. Want to work with me? Let's get in touch!
