I am a multimedia artist based in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada. I paint, create ceramic sculptures and do print making.
What do I paint? What do I create?
I create art with the aim of elevating spirits and inspiring people. Life throws us enough challenges. We need to rise above these and have high goals for ourselves. I believe that the courage, determination, strength and perseverance that we have within us is far greater than any challenge that we are faced with.
So, you see, through the visual language of images I paint/sculpt stories that you can connect with at an emotional level and feel uplifted.
I love exploring, experimenting, learning new techniques and working with a variety of media. Creating art is my passion. If today were to be the last day of my life, I would still want to create art. It is the connection to my soul, which is expressed through colours and textures and shapes on paper, canvas or clay.
I am a lifelong learner. After a 37 year long teaching career, I went back to University to take visual arts courses and in 2016 I graduated with a visual arts degree from Université de Moncton. I firmly believe that in life the most important thing is to know what you want. Once you know your goal, you’ll find ways of making it happen.
The fun part of printmaking is magically transforming my ideas or drawings into works of art through different techniques. I hand print each piece individually.
My paintings are thought provoking with a mix of abstract and figurative elements. I enjoy exploring a variety of techniques using watercolor, acrylics or mixed media.
