A Winnipeg Artist
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 and at Tara Davis Studio Boutique.
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. In my textile fabric artwork, my hometown is my inspiration. Scenes of Winnipeg and Manitoban animals are the subjects I am most influenced by. Most recently, mythological creatures have also been created with fabric and yarn. Custom commissions are available in both mediums.
Most recently, I have been working towards my dream of becoming a children’s book illustrator. In 2013 my first book was published. Daisy’s Biggest Success was released in 2013 with positive reviews. It was on the best sellers list for Children’s books for four weeks in a row at Canada’s largest independent booksellers, McNally Robinson’s.
