Featured Art$Pay Artist
Did you Know...
Honest inspiration and connection to the subject matter is vital, as it provides for successful expression. I am as many artists, truly inspired by the natural landscape seen within the everyday. My paintings also then seem to speak to viewers who feel the same inspiration and connection to the natural landscape, whether it be sun cast within a forest or foliage as it changes through the seasons. Using this knowledge of true inspiration and audience connection led to applying and acceptance into McMichael Gallery’s Fundraiser 2017, Kleinburg,ON. Due to top ten placement, I am thrilled to now be invited back for the 2018 event. This summer will be happily filled with painting as I prepare. My career has always been artistically driven, from illustration upon completion of postsecondary studies, to now a practicing fine artist of Waterloo region. Participation in group exhibitions, co-op galleries, and studio art shows has led me to discover the huge Arts Community that the Region has to offer. Having this strong network of resources and community such as Art$Pay, is so important to support and strengthen one’s practice.
