“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.

Art is 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.

Since as far back as my family 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 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.
