I work as a full-time artist and graphic designer in Calgary, Alberta. I enjoy creating art that depicts natural settings of the prairies, lake country and the coast. Living in the city, however, I also love depicting urban spaces – from busy street scenes, to interiors and still life. I enjoy painting and writing about art and creativity because I want to share a few key ideas with others:
First, I believe that the ability to be creative is not solely innate. It can also be learned and developed. We all have the gift of having a unique point of view, thoughts & feelings. And the creative expression of those gifts is what makes each person’s art so special.
Second, I believe that our life experiences not only expand our capacity for creativity, but that creativity expands our capacity for life experiences. Whether you express yourself through paint, yarn, or crayons and glue sticks, creativity allows us to learn more about ourselves and how to live a fulfilling, joyful life. That learning is all about self-worth, self-acceptance & compassion. But it’s also about how to love (& be loved), feel empathy, and to know that we belong and have a purpose. This kind of learning is universal and my hope is that it allows my work to connect with, and speak to others. This is why I paint – I hope you enjoy my work.
