I am an emerging and largely self-taught artist, working primarily in acrylics. My expressive style utilizes loose brush strokes, bold colors, semi-abstract representation, and additional elements, such as texture, embroidery, geometric patterns, splatter, and drips. I also enjoy up-cycling household fabric in place of traditional canvas as a way of reducing consumerism and waste, and I am learning digital painting. Through my art, I strive to create empathy beyond beauty, and meaning that transcends aesthetic value. My subjects of choice include people and animals because in portraying them, I feel most connected with the beauty of Creation.
I am a member of The Toronto Heliconian Club, the oldest association for women in the arts in Canada (1909). I show my work regularly at the Heliconian, and I have participated in juried shows at other galleries, including the Dufferin Museum, Propeller, and Leslie Grove. I sold work at the Danforth East Craft & Arts Fair, and it is found in several private collections in Canada and abroad, and has been published in the “Presence” journal (Spiritual Direction International).
