Hi everyone and thank you for visiting my website. I am a Winnipeg artist and have a Bachelors of Fine Arts Honours from the University of Manitoba’s School of Art. I am a painter, a textile artist, and an illustrator.While working towards my Fine Arts degree, I have shown in many local galleries including Cre8ery Gallery, Outworks Gallery, Graffiti Gallery, the Winnipeg Art Gallery and aceart. Also, I have had solo shows at the Gallery of Student Art (GoSA) at the University of Manitoba, Cre8ery Gallery and 1894 Art Centre.
Animals are a main source of inspiration in my artwork. Mostly dogs and local animals. Dogs often appear in my paintings. Ever since I rescued a dog years ago, I have been inspired to paint dogs. We see our pets in a different light than the casual observer, and that’s what I try to capture. Also, as a reoccurring theme in my artwork, is my hometown. Scenes of Winnipeg and Manitoban animals are the subjects I am most influenced by. I am extremely influenced by the nature that surrounds me. From the forests to the prairies to the shore, both its nature and the animals that habitat in these regions are a constant theme in my work.
Custom commissions are available in all mediums.
Most recently, I have been working towards my dream of becoming a children’s book illustrator. In 2013, I illustrated my first children’s book. Daisy’s Biggest Success was released in 2013 with positive reviews. Just recently, in December 2015, my second illustrated book was released, Fur is Only Fur Deep, which won the McNally Robinson Books for Young People Award for 2015/2016. I was also shortlisted for the Manuela Dias Book Design and Illustration Award for the Children’s Illustrator Category. Recently, I just designed and created my own colouring book in 2017, Wood You Like to Colour?
