Meet the Artist
“Vivid paintings record intimate moments of transition and development, capturing children when they are most honest and without reserve. The figurative gesture is celebrated, and we get a glimpse of the individual as each child moves autonomously through the world. With an emphasis on the caregiver's point of view, these sensitive portrayals anchor the fleeting firmly in paint, giving weight to emotion and memory. My work is painted wet in wet, inviting the viewer to explore the material processes of oil paint. The result is a contrast that plays between the stillness of the image and the dynamic movements inherent in the physical act of painting.”
Having stepped away from the arts for over a decade to create my family, I have spent the last few years revelling in paint, exploring subject and redeveloping my skills. I am looking forward to deepening my practice as a full-time artist/mother post-grad. I have also been fortunate to have had the opportunity to study under many successful artists including, Costa Dvorezky, Kristy Gordon, Juan Martinez, Bryce Liston and most recently Scott Conary. My work can be found in private collections throughout Ontario, New York, and California. I currently live and work out of my home studio in Toronto.
