I am a bit of an adventurer…leaving my home of Nova Scotia for Montreal with a caravan of fellow art students after college and have just kept going! I’ve lived in eight countries on three continents, speak five languages, am a lover a dogs, hiking, and a dancer. Don’t let me sing where you can hear me.


Inspiration from urban sophistication to natural beauty is found in my travels, and brought together though sketching, photography, painting and collage which all comes together in digital painting – freely combining any or all of these elements. I hope people experience my sense of adventure in the work.
