My paintings of wildlife, landscapes and forest canopies has allowed for my art to be represented across Canada and the United States.
Growing up in Alberta Canada my love for art began as a young girl spending countless hours drawing and creating. Not until my late twenties did I answer the yearning inside me to explore my creativity once again. Now nearly two decades later my work has evolved immensely. In my professional art career I have explored many techniques, the one that has made the boldest stroke is my twist on pointillism. Thousands of dots embellish each work of art. My paintings can have anywhere from 10 000 to 100 000 dots of paint delicately mapped out on the canvas. Every custom painting takes time, passion and dedication. The balance of vibrant hues and various textures enables each joyful piece to come alive.

“O” was inspired by the effects of oxygen on the brain. After meeting with my paired neuroscientist Wesley Vuong and discussing his research I was so excited to start painting. I knew that I wanted an eye as the focal point as part of the research testing was from eyes opened and closed. I added a clock in the eye because research takes time and this research could be taken further. The brainwaves at the top of the piece and the oxygen molecules in a blue and aqua palette tie this piece together.
