I am a Canadian Artist, Muralist and Teacher working professionally for more than 17 years.
My medium – Acrylic, oil, watercolour, graphite, soft pastel and airbrush.
My work – I welcome commission work for public and private murals, paintings and portraiture. I have also found a niche restoring public murals around Ontario.
My personal work most often is landscape, inspired by plein air painting and photography. Plein air landscape painting involves two of my favourite things: being outdoors and painting – “it doesn’t get any better than that!”
- I teach art to children and adults through workshops and outreach programs into schools and art galleries.
- I have been involved with Quest Art School + Gallery in Midland since its early beginnings (2003) and have been instrumental in helping it reach its stature as a central cultural hub in North Simcoe.
- In 2017, I undertook my largest community mural project to date: North Simcoe Canada’s 150 Mural Project; 4 murals, 4 communities coming together to mark the sesquicentennial of Canada’s Confederation.
- In December 2017, some of my landscape paintings were in an Episode of Murdoch Mysteries (Ep. 1108) including the character of Tom Thomson.
- I worked as Project Coordinator for the Tourism Simcoe County Barn Quilt Trail which brings barn owners and murals of quilts together to create a rural trail celebrating agriculture, heritage and the beautiful countryside of Simcoe County. My role has shifted to Artistic Coordinator of this project.
