I moved to Cape Breton as a child. Completing a B.A., I went on to study and work in graphic design. A semester studying Art Therapy sparked my pursuit of a B.A. in Visual Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. After graduating, I stayed – working in art and design. In 2010 I returned to Cape Breton, completed a B.Ed. in Adult Education and taught art and design. Currently works as a freelance artist, my paintings and illustrations span themes ranging from our natural local surroundings to the surreal.
