I learned to paint in oils at the age of 13, but at 20 I found a new love in acrylics and watercolor. Today I create art that is bright, bold, and whimsical. Why? Simply because that’s what makes me happy. Growing up in the heart of Northern Ontario, nature is a huge part of what inspires me. From the poses of the birds, to the curvature of the trees, I love depicting the world in raw, vivid color. Who says leaves need to be green!?
A new painting for me usually starts with layers of color and texture in the background. It isn’t uncommon for me to just dive in without a plan and see where the paint takes me. From there a background will sit anywhere from an hour to a few years before I decide what else will be added. Matching the perfect background to a foreground is a major part of my creative process.
I love doing custom orders, so if you are looking for a painting with vivid colors, good vibes, and lots of life, you are in the right place!
