A psychotherapist by profession, I have enjoyed a pursuit in the visual arts. Originally I was a potter, later I studied botanical painting and carbon dust drawing at U of T. I then pursued a diploma in Fine Art at the Toronto School of Art, developing a love for figurative and abstract art. Now, I like to explore intuitive mark making creating dynamic and evocative images with bold colours, shapes, lines and texture. Art is a journey, for me it has been an inward looking pursuit, a way to explore, reflect and give shape to my inner voice.
I am a visual artist working in mixed media, acrylics and oils. The creative process is a journey of exploration, risk taking and reflection. In this journey, I never know where it will take me, but if trust myself and allow the process to unfold it can be magical.
I am interested in the freedom to create and the control required to reflect and consider how I use the elements of colour, shapes, lines and texture, and how they can come together. I ask myself, does this piece speak to me? How does it sit with me? What is it saying to me? The end result must be both exciting and satisfying. Then I know it's finished.
