"There is something meditative about the act of painting itself. The simple gesture. The physicality and repetition of it. Mark making after mark making. Soft blendings. The viscosity and smell of the oils. It triggers something in me, shutting out all the noise of the day."
I am a painter living in Toronto, Ontario with my husband and two young daughters. I was born in Ontario, Canada and received my BFA at the University of Waterloo.

My work is an investigation into image and perception, touching on the ambiguity of texts - photographic, painterly or mnemonic, creating an encounter open to interpretation. I use glazing techniques, creating layers which capture a rich glow of light and a depth of colour. I am constantly drawn to light and strive to always be living in it.

My work has been exhibited across Canada and the United States and is included in many International collections.

"My artistic process is so integral to my work. For me, painting is a kind of meditation. I work mostly at night and I find that the quiet time with my thoughts, my paint and the repetitive blending and brush strokes is incredibly therapeutic. I like to think that this is also manifested in my artwork."
