I have always had an interest in expressing myself through various artistic media since I was a child. The beauty in nature, people, animals and dreams all inspires me. I love the process of creating my paintings. Each part of the painting, whether it is a brush stroke, manipulated photo or pastel strike, it’s very deliberate. Using acrylic paint is good too, since it dries quickly, but also easy to experiment with. I have diplomas from both Sheridan College and OCAD in fine arts, drawing and painting. My advice to anyone who is looking to have a career in the arts is to really just be yourself. It is easy to get caught up in what others are doing and feel pressured to create something which does not feel natural. Don’t give up and be willing to work really, really hard.
