Like most successful artists, I was born with a yearning for creativity. I grew up in a traditional rural community in Saskatchewan. After High School I studied Fine Art at the University of Saskatchewan. I continue to take classes at ACAD in Calgary to learn new concepts & push myself “outside the box” of creativity.
Art is a way of life for me. I think about creating throughout almost every aspect of my day. I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I love. When I’m creating art I am the happiest I can be. I am passionate, perfectionist individual. One of the most rewarding parts of what I do is share my art with people who cherish it in their home.
Another inspiring part of what I do is share my passion for art by teaching kids. I offer “Family Painting” instruction. Siblings will come to my studio & I assist them in creating a beautiful painting to hang in their home or give as a gift to parents or Grandparents.
I also work with fundraising committees in schools and create art with the students. The art is then auctioned at a fundraiser with the parents. The projects have been very well relieved and I have helped raise over $200,000 for schools in the Calgary area.
