I am a contemporary artist from Toronto, Canada who is inspired and influenced by past and present Canadian art, Impressionism, and use of colour, and light. Although I have been sketching, drawing and painting all my life, it has only been in the last few years that my passion to create has become a full time endeavour. I have been able to share my deep love of art, the stories that inspire each piece, and their personal meaning. I do hope you are touched by them as well.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Art has always been a big part of my life. As far back as I can remember, I have always drawn, painted, etched and created. I have seen the world as if every image, moment and place could be a drawing or a painting.

I have used many different mediums, such as watercolour, acrylics, and pastels over the years but I am most passionate about oil on canvas. I love vibrant colour, and brush strokes that creates energy.

I am inspired by the places I visit, the people I meet; a walk, a hike, a memory. Many of my pieces are directly influenced by these moments. They inspire me to capture their essence.

On a recent visit to Newfoundland, we decided to explore the Avalon Peninsula and the Irish loop. We came across a tiny community called Witless Bay. I decided to explore the beach and came across interesting rock formations, an incredible bay and wonderful reflections in the water. The sky was definitely Witless and spectacular!

Quidi Vidi is such a magical place to visit in Newfoundland. During one wet and misty morning, I was struck by the incredible atmosphere created by the combination of water, rock and sky. It definitely inspired this piece!

This painting was inspired while visiting St. John's Newfoundland. Love the St. John's harbour and the narrows. I was stranded there because of hurricane Fiona. The morning after Fiona hit, there was an incredible sunrise against the backdrop of the Narrows. It was glorious!

This piece was inspired while sitting in the stands at BMO field during a Canada vs US women's soccer game with my daughter. I was struck by the Sea of Red in the stands against the magnificent Toronto Skyline! Magical.
