I currently live and create in the diversity Alberta and the magnificence of Canada. I graduated from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University with a B.F.A.
From the University of Alberta, I am the recipient of the Harry Wolfarth Memorial Award for Fine Art and the Constance McFarland Memorial Award for Fine Art.
My work has grown from my many travels through Europe, Mexico, North and Central America.
I am enchanted by literature and poetry; how a sentence can conjure in the mind a whole mysterious world. I believe that a powerful tale can be made to charm an audience by illustrating it; leaving a permanent impression.
I feel it is an exciting time (as an artist) to participate in the history of children’s book illustrations; from embroidery to 3-dimensional and collage, to elegant drawings and bold photography! I,personally, am inspired by the transparency and vividness of watercolours and I am grabbed by the range and softness of charcoal.
My contents are a magical world inhabited by animals and children, full of the fantastical and sublime.
