Born and raised in Toronto, not formally trained in the arts, my lifelong love of art led me to explore my creative side. I first started with drawing classes reminiscent of the ones I took during summer holidays in high school. Thanks to an amazingly talented art teacher introducing me to the beauty of colour through pastels, my exploration and journey into painting began.
I believe in art and I believe art should be accessible to everyone. Everyone should enjoy the beauty of original art in his or her home. An original art creation contains a part of the artists’ soul, creating a connection between the artist and the observer. Art speaks to each of us in a unique and powerful way.
I am still exploring the diverse facets of acrylics to represent the diversity of my interests through my abstract, non-objective, landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes and floral creations. Using texture, vibrant and vivid colours, my paintings are thought provoking and inspire others to reflect on life.
I have recently become a Reiki Master and have incorporated this healing energy into my most recent paintings. Many of my paintings are now created with a healing intention. Artist advocate and coach Renee Phillips, says: “When Artists create healing art they not only experience a healing process for themselves, their art has a healing impact on viewers, and the earth.”
My art represents the unique journey I am on, never ending, always changing and always learning.
My motto is “Be an original, buy original art.”
