I have always felt the pull to create. When I was a young girl, I remember sitting in my bed drawing different animals. Through the years I continued to have art be a part of my life. I studied at Alberta University of the arts for a few years before switching my major to motherhood. Along the way, art in different mediums was weaved into my days of diaper changes and sleepless nights. When I was pregnant with my fourth child, I decided that now was the time to get back to painting. I was suffering from depression and I needed an outlet. Painting is that outlet for me. When I mix the colours and feel the paint move with my brush, everything else just melts away. I currently live on Vancouver Island with my husband and four children, I draw a lot of my inspiration from the waves, mountains and trees.
