About Me

How I got here

Growing up in Ontario and spending every summer at a lake fostered my love of animals and nature in general. 

Photography developed my eye for composition and lighting and led to an appreciation of art and a desire to paint. 

Being fortunate enough to live in a thriving arts community in Muskoka fuels my inspiration. I’m grateful for the support
I receive from family and friends and that I finally listened to the voice in my heart rather than my head and started creating! 

My experience

Initially self-taught,  I later attended the AGO for their drawing and painting courses, before meeting a wonderful mentor who's guidance took my art to the next level.

A fabulous art retreat in France in 2015 provided the experience of painting with wonderful artists from all over the world. 

My art is now entered in juried shows and I have the pleasure of seeing it displayed (and selling) in Auburn Gallery in Muskoka. 

My vision

I just need to paint! 

I want to express  my passion through painting.

My hope is  that my art stirs emotion and memories that bring enjoyment to the viewer.
