Art has been with me throughout my life; from how I dress to the food I prepare to eat. I want to share my inspiration and joy through the beauty of art for those around me.
I have a love of multiple mediums however fashion and digital art are my two preferences.

I graduated from Sheridan College for Computer Animation, having also completed a 3-year Interpretive Illustration course.

I do fashion design, making my own skirts, dresses and handbags while looking for other ways to display and showcase my work.
