I am a visual artist who loves expressing myself through vibrant colour and brushstrokes. My appreciation of nature and the beauty around us is very important to me. I strive to express this in my work.
I have enjoyed creating art since my early years growing up in Vernon, British Columbia. After obtaining a Degree in both Fine Arts and Education I worked as a Graphic Designer in Calgary, Alberta. More recently I lived on the East Coast in Nova Scotia where I continued to paint and also worked as a graphic designer and I have now come full circle and returned to the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia to continue my creative pursuits.
In most of my artwork I choose to colourfully capture the beauty and delicate nature of flowers using oil paints, but have captured many other subjects as well drawing from the different landscapes around us. A lot of my paintings are relatively large in scale and often give an abstracted and magnified view of flowers reminiscent of the work of Georgia O'Keeffe.
Please enjoy your visual journey through my artwork as you see the natural world around you through my eyes and take some time to look through samples of my graphic design work as well.
