Elevating Spaces, Inspiring Souls

My art delves into the emotional and energetic essence of our surroundings, drawing inspiration from the dynamic interplay between natural and built environments. Each piece captures how these landscapes influence human interaction and emotion. Through a vivid palette, I explore themes of interconnectedness and social evolution, reflecting on how spaces shape our collective experiences and feelings. Dynamic colours and bold strokes, balance the fine line between chaos and peace. My layering technique creates shapes that feel both otherworldly and familiar, inspired by natural and urban landscapes. My art offers a unique lens to view the world—a blend of colour and concept that transforms both perception and space and illuminates the profound connections that bind us all.


Where My Art Meets Your World

Since my early days, nestled with Rembrandt's art books on my childhood bed, art and environment have been constants in my life, guiding forces amidst its complexities.

Those moments, lost in the pages of Rembrandt's world, or, lost in the clouds over the Manitoba Prairie, were more than just passing time; they planted the seeds of a journey that would deeply shape my understanding and expression of life's vibrant core.

My artistic sensibility is deeply rooted in the natural landscapes of the Prairies and the Canadian Shield, and enriched by my childhood experiences in European cities. Frequent visits to extended family in Belgium and Italy immersed me in a world of diverse art, history, and culture, profoundly shaping my creative perspective and leading me to study art history in university.

Each piece I create carries a bit of this dual energy, a reflection of the life-affirming force that drives me. My art is a part of me, and through it, I hope to bring a similar richness to your life, adding not just to your surroundings but to your emotional world as well.

When you find a connection with one of my artworks, my greatest wish is for you to feel that same spark of life, inspiration, and interconnection that fueled its creation.

Land Acknowledgement

As the heart of my art business beats within the beautiful landscape of Kenora, Ontario, I am deeply honoured to acknowledge that we are situated on Treaty 3 territory, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe and Métis peoples. This land has been a site of creativity, storytelling, and artistic expression for thousands of years, long before my studio came to be.

In recognizing this, I am reminded of the deep connection between art and the land from which it draws inspiration. As an abstract artist, my work is not only a reflection of my personal journey but also a tribute to the enduring legacy and cultural richness of the original caretakers of this land. Their relationship with these territories is steeped in a profound respect for nature and an intrinsic understanding of its intricate beauty – values that deeply resonate with my own artistic philosophy.

Through my art, I aspire to honour the spirit of this land and its people, past, present, and future. I am committed to learning from and with the Indigenous communities, to ensure that my creative practice is a channel for shared understanding, respect, and healing.

Together, let's embrace the transformative power of art to connect us more deeply with each other and with the world around us.
