I am a self taught active artist in Thunder Bay, Ontario. My style depicts earthly elements-enhancing them with vibrant, soul - filling colours. Heavily inspired by the Canadian landscape and Lake Superior, I create works of art that reflect and represent the beauty of this region.
I have been painting and selling artwork for 7 years; my style has evolved and progressed quickly since the early days. You can find my work online or at local craft / artisan events throughout the year.
What are my future plans as an artist?
Cross Canada Art tour
Continue to expand into other provinces

I build and construct frames to meet specific sizes for artworks
I collaborate with local businesses to create unique art works for their space
I fit and hang art installations
I am trained and certified as a 500 hour Modo Yoga instructor with an accumulation of 700 hours in training experience. Teaching for 8 and learning for life!!
My love for yoga and art eventually intertwined and I began teaching Art and Yoga workshops to youth and adults. This is something I am incredibly proud of- getting to share and teach painting while quieting the mind.
I am also the designer and creator of a line of environmentally friendly yoga mats printed with my original painted designs.
