About Me

I am an English literature instructor by day, artist by night. Mostly I paint: abstract, expressionism, illustration, and portraits (both humans and pets).

I live in Burnaby, BC, Canada (very near Vancouver). I enjoy margaritas and long walks on the beach. Art has almost always been a big part of my life.

ART SHOP Under Construction

I struggle with chronic illness, which slows me down quite a bit, but I am an avid creator still, and I am slowly populating my shop with my work.

If there is something you see elsewhere on the site that is not in the shop, shoot me a message. It is quite possibly available, and I am happy to take inquiries.

Currency and Shipping

All prices are in Canadian Dollars. If you live in Canada, I will cover your shipping. If you live in the US or elsewhere in our wonderful wide world, I will partly subsidize your shipping.

To find out more, please feel welcome to send me your questions.

Find Out More About Us

Check out my blog for more on the thought and process surrounding my work as it intersects with life personally and at large. I have lots of opinions. Haha. I am also a very curious person. The topics are sometimes serious but I rarely take myself too seriously. There is the odd short story or poem as well. It's good not to be too entrenched in one form. Read, enjoy, comment!
