Art has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I did not have as many opportunities to practice my painting skills since art supplies were difficult to come by. Over the years however, I have been able to develop my unique style and painting techniques at home and have grown immensely as an artist. Now I am able to paint everyday in my art studio and offer classes to the children and adults of my community.
Although I enjoy many different art forms and mediums, I have come to truly appreciate painting, especially with oils. Painting allows me to disconnect form the world and to truly be in the moment. I’ve witnessed my students experience this many times over the years; how all of their worries can be put on hold while they focus on their masterpieces. This is one of the reasons I love to share my love of art with others.
Our beautiful North is what inspires my landscape paintings, along with my childhood memories of growing up by the Atlantic Ocean. I love to paint the soothing sunsets I watched early in the mornings. Fiery reds, burnt oranges, and bright yellows are my favourite colours to work with since they catch the eye, but I use every colour that is available to me. Every artwork I create is unique in its own way thanks to the different mixtures of colours that I use. My art clearly expresses the strong love of nature that I have. I hope that you enjoy my painting as much as I love creating them!
