Painting since 2006, my art education includes coursework at the Toronto School of Art, Haliburton School of the Arts, and many workshops throughout Ontario.
Figurative abstraction is my current focus. Integrating figures into textured, layered backgrounds, is my way of saying: we are our contexts, all of us connected, with responsibilities to one another and the world around us. After creating an abstract collage of made and found papers, I incorporate an image from my life drawing sketches or personal photos. Moving from the chaos of the collage to calm imagery brings me to a place of inner quiet, and results in contemplative work.
