I grew up in Hope, BC and have been experimenting with art since high school. After high school, I went on to complete my Bachelor of Arts in Art and Design at Trinity Western University. I began there with creative writing, (which I’ve recently picked up again) and switched to a focus in studio art as I found it a much more fulfilling and introspective way to express myself.
After university, I had some experience teaching art workshops at an after school program in Surrey, and from there moved to Vancouver. I joined an art collective there called Thrive Art Studio where I was a member for several years and participated in events and a group show. After that I joined the Archive Art Studio for a time where I had some space to paint with other artists.
Most of my earlier work consisted of drawing, mixed media, and installation art. I enjoyed exploring very expressive emotions with charcoal and graphite while using text and phrases. Over the years many of those earlier series transformed into poetry and mixed media collage, which I then combined into a poetry book titled The Art of Letting Go, self-published in 2019.
Painting has been an evolving medium for me in the last few years. I enjoyed many portrait painting classes in university but have recently been doing landscape acrylic painting, specifically of mountains. I love hiking and camping and the mountains have been an inspirational place for me while bringing me peace and joy. Painting has become a great outlet for me to keep learning while also continuing my poetry.
Currently, I am living in Chilliwack BC and plan to move to New Mexico later this year with my husband, where I hope to explore plein air painting of the warm desert landscape and Sandia mountains.
