Hello there !

I am a Canadian Vancouver Island based artist who focuses on creating bright, colourful landscape paintings filled with movement and joy. I believe everyone should fill their homes with artwork that make them feel happy.

A little bit about me is that I’m a mother of two young boys who fill my days with creativity and energy! They are the light and inspiration that keep me going. I currrenty work from my living room !  I am also a volunteer for my local art community. Living in a small town and not a big city I really love to help out our creatives when I get a chance. I am self- taught however I did attend North Island Collage for two years to get an art diploma. When my son was born I chose to leave collage and point myself in a different direction as money was tight and instagram was becoming big that year. I began selling from home while raising my son.

 In my early years my summers were spent on my granmothers ten acher property in Coombs, BC where I would spend countless hours sketching in her gardens and exploring the forest completely immersed and inspired by the natural beauty that surrounded me. From this experence and my grandma’s natrual creative energy blossomed an endless need to make artwork. 

My dream has always been to be a full time artist. After many years of trying to find the perfect way to make that life happen my oldest son was born and instead of going back to work at a coffee shop or retail job I started selling my art instead. I feel so honored and inspired to bring so much happiness into peoples lives with my creations.

Check out my commissions page for custom orders and check out my social media for inspiration and a peek at what I’m currently working on.

I’m currently working on a spring collection called “Moving Mountains”. All of the original artwork will be launched here on my website April 2020!
