Artist Statement

I’m a visual artist, graphic designer and copywriter based in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. I was born and raised in southern Ontario and moved to Corner Brook in 2001. I now spend summers painting and working on Exploits Island, a remote resettled community off the northern coast of Newfoundland.

Artistic expression has always been a significant part of my life. My first visual art forms were sewing and needlework, and when my Dad gave me a secondhand camera in high school I learned and practiced the art of photography, spending countless hours in the darkroom.

I began painting in 2006 and was drawn to the soft, transparent nature of watercolour as a medium. The colours, tastes, sounds, and smells of nature inspire me, especially when I’m by a river, lake or ocean. The fluidity and often-unexpected behavior of watercolour paints lends itself perfectly to the depiction of these places.

I studied page layout and design at Toronto's George Brown College and now freelance as a graphic designer and copywriter for small businesses and not-for-profit groups.

I’m an active member of the League of Artists of Western Newfoundland (LAWN) and sat on the executive committee from 2012-2016, acting as secretary and handling the communications and marketing work for the group.
