I am a self taught artist.
After spending most of my life believing I was not a creative person, I decided to challenge that assumption. More than a decade ago, I rented a studio space with some friends and began experimenting with colourful paint and blank canvases.
It was a revelation. And it continues to be a leap of faith.
Cultivating an artistic practice stretches and inspires me. Painting is an invitation to see the world - and myself - differently. It encourages me to slow down and let go of achievement, outcomes and perfection. It connects me with the natural world.
It reminds that we are all creative beings, with an innate ability to be artists.
For the first ten years of my practice, I shared space in the 1000 Parker Street building in Vancouver, and participated in the Eastside Culture Crawl. I now work out of my own home studio. You can view and purchase my creative work online.

in order to look at things in a different way."
