I currently work as a painter, graphic designer/iIllustrator and musician at my home studio in Toronto. Always loving to paint and play music as a child I continued the passion and completed a B.A. in Fine Art & Music (Guelph U.), Emily Carr UAD and TSA. Over the years I have exhibited in various galleries and art festivals namely 401 Richmond Gallery, Toronto Miniature Juried Exhibition, Clarington Art Festival, and recently at Artwalk in the Square, John. B. Aird Gallery Print Show, Artists Network Smalls Exhibit, and Lesliegrove Woman’s Day Juried Show. Numerous paintings have been sold to various companies (Infolink Communications, Active Core, Acast Global) and individuals, friends and family.
To make ends meet I focused on a successful career as an Art Director/Graphic Designer/Illustrator working for various companies (namely CM Magazine, Infolink Communications, Proctor & Gamble and Spin Master Toys). I have now though, recently semi-retired from full time corporate work I am now enjoying getting back to the more personal self expressions of painting and music making.
I am an artist who loves to explore the layering of textures and gestural line found in nature. My recent works are an abstract expressionistic exploration inspired by recent isolated experiences of gardening and going for long walks along rocky beaches and fields of wild flowers. These experiences have brought a new found healing through the energy and grounding of natural beauty.
From making intuitive spontaneous mark making, where there is an interplay between accident and intension, gestural organic forms and shapes emerge. Layered textures of mixed media: graphite, art markers, pencils, digital painting, image scans, acrylic paint printed on gylcée archival paper combine to create a complex energenic landscape. Inspired by both conscious and unconscious motivations they are an expression of personal past grief and loss that is emerging into a rhythmical and vulnerable landscape of healing. I invite you to participate in seeing through this layered ambiguity and discover your own subjective vision and feeling. I hope you enjoy!
