Acrylic and charcoal on canvas (framed).
Allow the equestrian and fetish to marry with your imagination and the subliminal.
I was born in Three Hills Alberta but grew up mostly in Saskatchewan until graduating high school in 2006. Spending time all over Canada, from Alberta to Quebec, gave me a rich appreciation for the history of Canada, our terroir in soil with wine and art in culture. I have been in the Toronto area for around ten years. I have taken art all the way through High School and took specific art courses both in art theory and practicum while getting my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from Athabasca University in 2011. I am called to work as an artist because it is the space where I feel completely happy and my soul’s purpose is to show spirit in paintings through the use of colour and how that colour reflects that light that defines it. Seminars are also a great way I try to keep my inspiration flowing. “Creativity takes courage,” Henry Matisse is a deep part of my motto every morning. We are often afraid of failure or of not reflecting what our mind has strongly driven us to express but the goal is to overcome that everyday.
I view art as my calling and am largely a self taught artist. “Every artist was first an amateur” Ralph Waldo Emerson. I am motivated on reflecting the world around them to the world who does not stop to express emotion of the response of reflecting the world around them by paint and charcoal. is my philosophy. Salvador Dali inspires me in his subliminal use of shapes and subject placement to create political messages. The Post Impressionist Painter of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and his use of emotion through illustrative paint strokes inspires my practice. Andy Warhol to especially teach the development of “Icon” like portraits deeply inspired my “Champions Queen”(2018). Expressive Illustration-Painting is where I find my home in genre of developing my art.
