Art is my true passion. It is my personal therapy, helping me release my innermost feelings.
I struggled with a cleft palate at birth, and had speech difficulties growing up. Art has been a way for me to express emotion and create something unique that people can appreciate.
I have been working independently to develop my own technique for over 20 years. I prefer working with acrylic and ceramic paints, oil, pastels and fine ink pens. My art is processed in multi-medium formats including canvas, greeting cards, wood and magnets.
I have been sponsored by RISE Ottawa, a program that provides small business support to entrepreneurs living with mental illness. This program has helped me to manage my mental illness. Instead of my challenges holding me back, RISE has helped me to see how I can share my art with others. Mental illness has not been a liability for me, it has been a window of opportunity.Please feel free to browse the website and view works for sale, or contact me for further details.
