Art Is Life

~
Luminous paintings in mixed media, oil, acrylic, and watercolour inspired by living and breathing on planet earth.”

Colour, Line, movement, stillness, and spaciousness are all integral to my work and practice. I cultivate flow through yoga, breathwork, and meditation; I find joy inside my studio or out in the wild. The inner light that shines though my paintings is from the daily care I take to nurture my heart.

People tell me that they feel more aligned in the presence of my art; like they can stretch out and breathe.

I was introduced to art in childhood, and remember the awe I felt in it’s presence. I was synesthetic; words and sounds had shapes and colours in my mind, which are still with me. It took a long time to find my voice as an artist; as soon as I found something that felt like mine, it would disappear and leave me searching again. This in itself is part of my voice; if I approach my work in the spirit of curious play, I’m not so attached to where I want it to go. Instead I let it take me…

I received my BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1998 after completing a BA in History and Art History at Mt. Allison NB (‘92). Since then I have been living and working as a painter and developing my embodied relationship with land and spirit. I have participated in numerous solo and group shows throughout the province and my work is being collected at home and abroad. My paintings are part of the Nova Scotia Art Bank and have been published in We’Moon calendars since 2007.
