Artist Statement
My sense of design as a starting point in any of my creations has been a constant throughout my career. How the subject kisses the edge of the page turns me on, and the bold colour play, which is the key element of my style. Most recently my desire to achieve more impactful expression in my creations, has become my new artistic direction. Through a mixed media approach, I hope to achieve emotional expression of the human condition that represents our present state in society.

Artist Bio
I began my career as a fashion designer, studying in Berlin, Germany in the 80’s. While designing for a number of fashion houses, in the Toronto fashion district, I also created fashion illustrations for catalogues, storyboards, and advertisements for Canadian Designers.
I eventually left the fashion industry to become a graduate of Communication and Design at OCAD in Toronto. Only then to enter the Liturgical world of Design, where I established Labyrinth Studios Inc. designing and manufacturing sanctuary décor for Churches across Canada and the US.
My passion for designing and painting lead me to sharing my knowledge in the arts through workshops, with the Continuing Education Board in Wellington County, Mohawk College, and in various establishments throughout the GTA area. My teaching engagements have been growing over the year, as guest workshop instructor, or speaker, and now my schedule includes instructing online.
Fascinated with the Human figure whether dressing it or documenting it, I have had the pleasure of painting the odd portrait of a few celebrities, legends; and people in my community. It has been said that I have a way of capturing the inner essence of my subjects through my sense of design and colour.
I continue to attempt to participate in Solo and Group gallery showings. My creations can be found in private collections throughout Canada, US and Europe.
