artist statement

There are many familiar themes that run through my work; nature, iconic female deities, fairytales, ancient text, and hidden symbols. Folklore and symbolism of many cultures, all brought together in my paintings to tell a story.

I am a painter, acrylic and watercolour are my main mediums.


Born in Calgary AB, I have lived in many parts of Western Canada, and since 2007 I have made Eastend, SK my home. 


I have always been a painter. I have taken a self directed approach thus far in my career, taking courses in the many places I have lived, and involve  myself in  community art events. Along side my personal art work, I spend time encouraging and teaching others to explore art in it’s many mediums.

My participation in the arts community have included  the Eastend Arts Council, creating A.G.E.S - Artisans Guild of Eastend and Surrounding Areas.  Sask Culture Days, and exhibitions in Western Canada , Surreal Saskatchewan curated by OSAC (Organization of Sask Arts Councils). 
Most recent is a grant from Saskatchewan Arts Board - Artist in Community. 

A 6 month art workshop in Eastend SK.
