Every year around earth day I take stock of the environmental impact of my art practice. I’ve always worked hard to minimize my footprint, and my studio is the place I spend the most time so it makes sense for me to create green processes wherever possible. I do use some petrochemicals because the oil-based letterpress inks need a little muscle to get clean and mineral spirits are the only thing up to the task, but at a liter per year that’s not a big impact.

I am a painter from the Crowsnest Pass, who has a love for Fernie through the connections I’ve made with dear friends and the creative community here. You should at least know this about me: my outdoor preference is paddling down the Elk River over downhill skiing any day because I cannot bear the chairlift for fear of heights. And no, skinning up the slopes does not make up for this problem.

noun: bliss
1.perfect happiness; great joy.

An expressionistic collection of strong marks & vibrant color. 

The abstract art  pieces in this collection are meant to evoke emotion and it is the job of the viewer to interpret the feelings for themselves.  The artist feels bliss while painting- how does that translate to the viewer?

Enjoy the large scale pieces and revel in the lush colors inspired by gorgeous natural hues and organic lines and shapes.

"Curiosity never killed the Cat"

Artist Statement

For me, inspiration usually comes from being in a place or moment of happiness & comfort; and creating is my way of keeping a track on my mental health by becoming engaged and focused on one thing. Therefore, my art is a revolving circle of inspiration, making and validation. A win, win all around! So throughout the exhibit I will be telling a visual story moments that I find solace in.
