The aim of my work is to provide bright moments of transportation that celebrate the landscapes and wildlife that I love.

My art is inspired by time spent in the wilderness of Alberta and British Columbia. After arriving home from a trail run, hike, or camping trip, reference photos and threads of memory filter through my imagination and onto the canvas. I’m drawn to vibrant colours and a mixture of smooth and lively brushstrokes to convey how it felt to be in that place in that moment in time. I also like to push the boundaries of realism by choosing exaggerated or original colours for my subjects. I am a primarily self-taught acrylic artist who finds the practice of painting to be deeply engaging, mostly fun (but sometimes maddening), and endlessly fulfilling. I plot, plan, sketch, and paint from my home in Calgary, Alberta.
