Ways I Work

Favourite book

When I was younger it was Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, more recently it is Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts

How long have you been creating art?

I've been painting since I was young and went to school for art, but it wasn't until the spring of 2016 that I really starting making art more professionally.

Why is art important to you?

Creating art fully expresses something inside me. It is the only way I can do this!

Beverage of choice

Coffee with cream in the morning, sparkling water when I'm out socializing.

When I'm not makng art, I'm (a) ...

Mommy to two young children. You can also find me riding my bike, walking in nature and practicing yoga

Favourite movie

I have a hard time watching movies more than once but there are a few I can watch every year: Groundhog Day, Christmas Vacation, and The Holiday.

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?

Art adds so much richness to a space. It's uplifting, interesting, and adds warmth, vibrancy and life to a space.
