About

I’m a self-taught abstract expressionist artist working from my home studio in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada.  For me, creating is a way to connect with myself, with others - with life.  And it's so much fun!  Over the last decade, I’ve been a professional practitioner of Heilkunst Homeopathy, a system of holistic medicine.  Heilkunst is a German word meaning “the ART of making whole” and, in a sense, my visual art practice is an extension of my holistic healthcare practice.  Much like a remedy, a resonant painting can provide us with a sense of comfort, connection and pleasure.  Through my creative work, I enjoy exploring the relationship between art and wellbeing - and the marked power of an original piece in bringing a space to life!   

My creative process is like a dance; most often, I get inspired by listening to music and unfold the painting from there.  Acrylic is my medium, and I use epoxy resin as a glass-like reflective finish to bring out the colour, texture and shine in the pieces.  

I create new work steadily, and offer my clients the option of commissioning custom pieces.  I'm grateful to be here doing this work I love; and I thank you for your interest in my art.
