“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”

Thomas Merton

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. Over the past few years art has become my sanctuary. I have taken the time to find and lose myself in creating art. I am motivated to learn new techniques and to try new mediums.

Crystal Pyne Bound for Dory 30″ x 24″ Acrylic on Canvas $745

Since as far back as my dear Mom can remember, I’ve had a pencil in one hand and paper in the other. Sketching people was my gateway into becoming an artist.
Today, when I capture a likeness, my effort is to allow that person’s soul to shine through. And while I still love pencil sketching, acrylics have become my favorite medium and I am excited to add color to the equation.

I grew up on Long Island, NS where I was fortunate enough to witness many of nature’s magical creations. This has steered me towards a path of capturing nature and wildlife. I am inspired to transpose that natural world onto canvas.

Since 2019, I feel blessed to be part of Bear River Artworks Gallery. What an amazing place to call home, along with a wonderful family of artists.
