I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, which is where I continue to live and create today. I graduated from the Visual Fine Arts program at the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta in April 2013.

I have always felt captivated and fascinated by art, seeing it as an escape into a magical world of creativity. I love painting simple everyday objects. I'm intrigued with history which explains my love for painting nostalgic objects. I find that vintage objects transport me back in time and trigger sentimental memories.

My trademark patterned backgrounds complement and contrast the still life objects. The combination of the two adds personality and ambience to each composition. I feel that the painting's story would be incomplete or silent without my patterns.

Primarily, my intent is to create fun, meaningful, uplifting art that makes people smile inside and out.

Get to know me by following my Instagram or signing up (through my website) for my monthly Artletter. Looking forward to meeting all the TOAF art lovers!!!
