Acrylic | Mixed Media | Marketing
I am a Canadian Artist & Educator living in Finland. Creating art is where I feel most like myself. In making art I transition to a deep place inside that is both energizing and calming. I connect to my most authentic self when I can create and make art without boundaries. The people and places I meet through travel largely inspire my work. My artworks translate memories into abstract expressions. I was always an art kid growing up and knew that a creative life was the path for me. The journey to becoming a full-time artist was a bit of a winding road, and I am grateful every day to have found my place in living this magnificent creative life.
I am passionate about making art every day and mentoring other artists on their own creative journeys. As an art teacher, I found my passion for working with aspiring artists. Transitioning to a full-time artist has been the most exciting, scary and fulfilling experience of my creative career. I feel so fortunate to live this creative life where I also have the honour to mentor other artists on their own journeys.
