"Art enables us to lose ourselves and find ourselves at the same time"~unknown

I LOVE and NEED to have some sort of creative outlet (or I think I would drive my husband and daughter crazy)!! I grew up in a home where the appreciation of the arts in it's many glorious forms (music, theatre, dance, sculpture, pottery, and painting) was instilled in me at a very young age, so it's only natural that I have continued that passion to this very day!

I am inspired by many things...my 7 yr old daughter, family, friends, music, colours, poetry, art, my dreams, fashion, photography and the places that I've traveled to. I am lucky to live in such a beautiful city as Vancouver BC is, surrounded by ocean, mountains and lush landscapes, which is a great source of inspiration for me. Working in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years I have found that…

I LOVE and NEED to have some sort of creative outlet (or I think I would drive my husband and daughter crazy)!!

I am inspired by many things...my 7 yr old daughter, family, friends, music, colours, poetry, art, my dreams, fashion, photography and the places that I've traveled to. I am lucky to live in such a beautiful city as Vancouver BC is, surrounded by ocean, mountains and lush landscapes, which is a great source of inspiration for me. Working in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years I have found that what intrigues me in particular are faces, moods, expressions and colours. Vintage images and timeless icons such as Audrey Hepburn and various images from my vast collection of rare, foreign fashion magazines, along with ephemera of collected old documents, are often combined in my work. The end result is a creation which tells a story, a beautiful dichotomy of old and new. Whether I am setting the table for a special dinner for family and friends, or creating a new art piece, I always leave my special mark with a bit of whimsy, style, and a touch of sparkle (as a "girly girl", adornments like Swarovski crystals, metallic/opalescent paints and gold leafing, are common elements in my pieces)! In fact, I like to call my canvas pieces "jewelry for your walls"!! They are sure to add a touch of elegance and sparkle into your home! And my new collage bangles are simply beautiful wearable pieces of art for your wrists!

My pieces are showcased in Flourish Boutique in South Bend Indiana, Turnabout Home in Vancouver, as well as local private showings...feel free to convo me for more info!
