Whimsical art for the young at heart.

“The art I create is made with the brilliant colours of childhood juxtaposed with the bold lines of adult life”. The contrast in my work explains how I balance being a creative professional while satisfying my urge to build, explore, and play.

Art was always one of the best teachers in my life, it taught me how to express my emotions, develop fine-tuned motor skills, communicate better and see things through a new perspective. Now that I’m older, I am proud to call myself a full-time artist at home in the studio.

I am a firm believer that it is possible to maintain a high quality of life while following one’s passions. To me, the starving artist stereotype is harmful because it dissuades people from being creators. The world can never have enough people who inject inspiration into the hearts of our communities. Whether it’s serious or a bit silly, art should be treated with the same respect as any other profession: it requires time, practice, skill, patience and effort — just like anything else. When people see my paintings and smile for the first time, it’s one of the most rewarding feelings on the planet, that transcends money or success.

My most recent work is a reflection on the process of creation. For me, each twirl of the paintbrush is a way to come back to the present moment, a way to slow down and feel each movement with greater intensity. While the finished product will always be only steps away, it is important to embrace each moment.

    I grew up drawing and painting when I was a child, then headed off to the ACAD as a teen. In 2001, I graduated with a Bachelor of Design with a focus on illustration. I now work full-time as an artist.

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer pet portraits?

I sure do! I’ll need 3-4 good pictures of your beloved family pet, the breed, and any unique details you’d like included (for example the tip of the tail is white).

Custom orders time-frame:
Custom portraits take 1-3 weeks to complete unless otherwise notified.

My order contains items with different dispatch times, when will they be shipped out?

With all my orders I try and get them ready to ship out as soon as possible. If you have ordered more than one item, the shipment date will be based on the longest "dispatch time” in your order. If you want to “rush” your order I offer a Fastpass option to skip the line. etsy.com/ca/listing/647489989

My order is a gift, could you mail it directly to them?

No problem. Please amend the “delivery address” before you order, as I will send all items to the delivery address supplied. Add a note to your order so I know it is a gift and I will make sure I don’t include the receipt.

If you would like a note included in your order, add this in the “note to seller” at checkout. If you have any questions, message me.

Do you offer framing?

Yes, I do, depending on the size of the print. Send me a message and I would be happy to provide you with some quotes.

Do you offer custom artwork?

Yes! If you have a vision for your perfect painting or piece of artwork, but just haven't found it yet, please message me. I'd love to work with you to create an image that you will cherish for years to come.

Custom orders time-frame:
