I received my BFA from Algoma University in 2011, surrounded by Sault Sainte Marie's landscape and an art family away from home. I try to see the good in everything, especially this beautiful planet and the diverse nature that inhabits it. I enjoy painting, taking photographs, and writing poetry. I think there is incredible importance in conservation and appreciating the flora, fauna, our bodies of water, and clean air. I believe that everything in nature has a heartbeat, whether physically felt or on a spiritual level, which is why I aim to have viewers gain a deeper connection with my artwork and what it stands for: nature, change, dreams, spirituality. In a nutshell I love the simple things in life - oh, and aromatic mugs of tea. Tea is delish.
I am inspired by Earth and all of the species of flora and fauna that integrate together to make our planet unique and beautiful. The need for public awareness toward human-animal interactions, wildlife conservation, climate change, and the dwindling numbers of endangered species is what I express within my acrylic paintings. Through vivid colour influenced by the Expressionists, I strive to depict the life-changing events that occur every day around the globe and the emotional impact atmospheric space can have on an individual. I aim to have my viewers rediscover the beauty of nature and our planet's wonder, and fight against the isolation between society and the environment.
All of my paintings have been watermarked. I ask that you do not copy or alter my work. Thank you kindly!
