Growing up in an artistic family, I began my journey as a child and later studied Art, English and Multimedia in university and college.
After working in Multimedia, I returned to school to acquire my teaching degree. Combining my skillset, I then filmed an art history documentary in Italy, where I discovered my love for exploring art, architecture and culture in other countries (see a few of those destinations on the left).
For five years I taught Art and English in Europe and the Middle East, explored 28 different countries and returned to Canada with a few souvenirs – including a husband! Though quite a change of pace after a multitude of adventures, I became reacquainted with my creative side while being a mom to two daughters. Travelling is different with small children, but as they get older, my husband and I look forward to exploring more exotic destinations again with our girls.
Life is busy now that I'm a wife, a mom and a volunteer, but I paint in my studio as often as possible. The colour combinations in my work are often inspired by my love of nature, as well as the countries I have explored. I use the beautiful Italian language to title my paintings - as an homage to my heritage and love for the diverse country.
