Biography

Currently I am pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting  at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I have won a scholarship for my teaching as well as maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA.

I live in Cote Saint Luc, Quebec, Canada. I speak English and French fluently and I am half British.

 

As a child I demonstrated an early talent in drawing and painting winning a couple of local art contests. I continued that winning streak throughout high school and college winning a couple more art contests. 

I worked in commercial art for a few years as an illustrator, graphic designer and 3D animator after I graduated from college. Wanting a change, I completed a BFA in Studio Arts at Concordia University in 2007.

Since I graduated I worked as a biking messenger, enjoying the exercise and fresh air that work provided, I was so in shape! I have taught drawing and painting for over eleven (11) years at the college level as well as to seniors in the community.

Artist Statement

My artwork is about using the illogical nature of my creative brain to come up with over the top narratives that use fantasy as a basis to spin a tale.

I find it very difficult, if not impossible, to think about practicality and logic. That’s just not the way I function. I’m a neurotic, high anxiety artist prone to being overly dramatic. This tendency to dramatize is reflected in my artwork, creative and nonsensical.
