Artist Statement:
I am originally from Hamilton, Ontario and credit living in outport Newfoundland for shaping my artistic development. I use readily available materials, simple techniques and perceive the world as my gallery. I make art that is intended to surprise and delight, and cause you to stop and enjoy a moment. My work is inspired by positive psychology, yoga philosophy and life as I know it.
