I am a Visual Artist and Illustrator.

I was born in Ottawa ON and in my early twenties I moved to Montreal QC. I always loved visual art and in my mid twenties I decided to go to school for it. I attended the Illustration
and Design program at Dawson College in MTL and really learned a lot in those three years.

After college I spent time freelancing until my husband and I moved near Seattle WA for a few years where I explored the incredible West Coast, and  spent a lot of time figure drawing and doing art in various forms. In 2021 we moved up to BC where I have taken an interest in acrylic landscapes. I love the use of colour, pattern and attempt to capture some of the beauty of the west coast in my work. I feel blessed to live in such an awe inspiring place, and in my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors- especially on my bicycle. We moved to Parksville this spring, I already love the natural spaces here and I have met some very welcoming and creative people, so I am excited to pursue my artistic journey oceanside.
