Born in 1980 to Canadian Parents, I have been caught saying "sorry" and "eh" on a fairly regular basis. Ever since I was a young child, I have always had a love for animals and a passion for creating art.
I've been on the pursuit of art my whole life, picking up skills and trying out new techniques and art tools along the way.
Although I am trained in graphic design, I fell into the hair industry and became a successful hair stylist for several years. A car accident would later prove to be a blessing in disguise as I had to retire as a stylist and ended up being reunited with art and design once again.
In 2012, my husband and I had the opportunity to move from our hometown of Toronto, Canada to relocate to San Antonio, Texas and in 2013, we welcomed our son.
For the next three years, I dedicated myself to raising a family but toward the end of 2016, I returned to my painting. I never stopped applying my graphic design skills as I've done many projects over the years.
2018 brought yet another adventure with a move to Baltimore, Maryland! I have made some wonderful friends and connections with the rescue groups in Texas and am looking forward to making new ones in my new home!
Whether you're interested in a custom painting or you need a design solution, you'll learn that I treat each and every client with integrity and keep the lines of communication open.
With paintings, I'll take you on the creation journey with me. Together, we will select the perfect reference photo(s) to turn into an expressive piece of art. I take the time to learn what colors you enjoy and what colors you'd like to steer clear of. I'll communicate with you every step of the way and do weekly check-ins by e-mail that include in-progress photos so that you're never left wondering what state your painting is in. It's not just about making a painting - it's a personalized experience. It is my goal to create paintings that evoke celebration of a loved one's life whether they are still part of this world or have ventured onto the next one.
With design, I'll take the time to learn about you and your company and what current design problems you're facing. I'll take the time to learn your market and who you're competing against. I'll apply color theory and design principles to create effective, visual communications. All of my design work is custom - no templates are ever used for a "one size fits all". You're unique and deserve a tailor-made design solution.

While I find great fulfillment in creating custom paintings for private buyers and exercising my design skills, an important part of my mission is giving back. That's why I created my on-going series of projects called "Art for Compassion™"; I partner with animal rescue groups and No-Kill shelters to raise money and awareness through art, thereby helping the rescuers to continue helping the animals they take into their care.
