about me

I am a painter living in beautiful Lunenburg, Nova Scotia where I work out of my studio surrounded by fresh sea air, sailboats and the sounds of nature.


Born in Northern Ontario, I am a graduate of Sheridan’s fine art and graphic design programs.

After 18 years as an art director and graphic designer in editorial design, branding and advertising, I left my career behind and spent eight years as an expat in Ireland and Dubai. My travels became a huge inspiration in my work. Upon returning to Canada, I studied intuitive abstract expressionism and after a career of precision and staying within the lines, I discovered the energy that comes from painting intuitively rather than focusing solely on what I see. My art can be found in private collections internationally.
