I've always been artistically inclined. I studied fine art at a special school for the arts in Ottawa, Canterbury High School. In my early 20s I studied fine art at the Ottawa School of Art. I went onto study graphic design and received a diploma from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Ottawa in 2002.
I describe my artistic style as, Expressionism. Art is magic; it speaks without voice. I make an effort to convey a sense 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, artisan and designer. I work for Sheltoons as an art teacher in various primary schools around the Ottawa region. I am the President of a not-for-profit organisation, the Ottawa Art Association. My handcrafted jewellery can be found at the Arbor Art Gallery in Vankleek Hill, Ontario.
I also write satire for Syndrome Magazine. One of my essays is included in this hilarious anthology, available on Amazon.
