I've always been artistically inclined. I studied fine art at a special school for the arts in Ottawa, Canterbury High School. I studied Fine Arts at the Ottawa School of Art where I was exposed to many facets of the field. I also studied Journalism and Graphic Design - to further my knowledge and personal passions for art, writing and design.
I describe my artistic style as Expressionism. Art is magic; it speaks without voice. I make an effort to convey a sense of emotion and feeling in my work. I am most often inspired by a place, event or an experience that has struck me in some way – and creativity is the mode for which I translate those experiences externally through whatever medium speaks to me. I let the subject dictate the medium; how my work is interpreted depends on the beholder. I hope that whoever beholds my art will be transported to new places inside themselves.
I am a professional artist, writer, illustrator, teacher and designer. I am the Art and Drama teacher at OJCS. My handcrafted jewellery can be found on Etsy and at the Arbor Art Gallery in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. You can wear my art by purchasing my art-clothing from Le Galeriste in Montreal. I am a Children's book author, I wrote and illustrated, To Thine Own Self Be True. I am also a writer for Syndrome Magazine. One of my essays is included in the hilarious anthology, Random Female Syndromes: Funny fixes for all the things you thought were wrong with you.
