Born in Pembroke, Ontario, Canada. After relocating from Ottawa to southern Ontario in 1991 and working in the pharmacy field for a number of years, I made the decision to pursue a visual arts education. A graduate of McMaster University with an Hon BA Art (minor Religious Studies), I maintain a home studio space in Hamilton, Ontario. Other things that I do: product developer/production manager at a lavender farm, and private yoga instructor.

Interests: Healthy living, hiking, badminton, cycling, golf, yoga, wine and food, math puzzles, discovering new music, singing, playing ukulele and drums (beginner!), interior decorating, my feline sidekick, road trips, hanging out with my sons. All more fun and meaningful when shared with my guy Tim.
