I have always loved to draw, paint and create and was lucky to be raised by two brilliant creatives; my dad, a water colour painter, photographer and furniture maker and my mom a seamstress, sketcher and collage dabbler. I started my formal art education at Vancouver Island University and completed my Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Visual Arts, at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

I love to paint and feel honored when I'm able to create a special custom piece for someone.  A big part of what excites me about commission work is meeting and getting to know my clients. Collaboration is a key component of my painting process and I enjoy mixing my aesthetic and vision with that of my clients to create unique, meaningful and personalized pieces of art.
