About me

Gender Female
Occupation Artist
Location Oakville, Ontario, Canada
Introduction An artist and illustrator living in southwestern Ontario. I work in the glowing and versatile medium of watercolours. Pencil sketches, research, layout and still more sketches lead the way to detailed finished paintings, which are executed on 100% cotton hot-pressed paper. That is a nuts-and-bolts description of the process, but the heart of it is capturing the joy in the moment when the everyday meets the magical. Please visit my website at
