About

I am an illustrator working in watercolour paint, pen and ink. I aspire to create visual art that conveys happiness, creates wonder and sets your imagination to wander. There’s as much happiness, wonder and imagination in it for the viewer as there is for me, as the artist. Win-win.

A lifelong artist.

I have been drawing, painting, cutting, shaping and playing with art since I was a young girl. I remember being bent over my desk sitting in the bright light of my big bedroom window, making stuff. My favourite summer camp was at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario, in the biggest studio workshop you have ever seen (I was nine!), filled with print making equipment, easels, sculpture tools and endless art supplies.

I studied art through all of my high school years, even completing fine art for my International Baccalaureate. I currently study at Emily Carr University on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC.

Hold me to this statement.

My goal is to be a professional artisan selling original artwork and prints, as well as licensing my art for gift cards and publishing a children’s picture book. That’s a lot! My motto this year(2015) is to Work. Get the work done. Art-work. Work, work, work.
