Some things that interest me are human rights, the environment, gender & sexuality, science, and health.
Sometimes I make art about these themes. But mostly I draw monsters.

I am an Ottawa based artist.

By using surrealist visuals and organic forms, I explore themes that touch humanity, eroticism, and the macabre. My most recent paintings have focused primarily on identities; capturing the most grotesques aspects of who we might be while still trying to show the beauty within. I am inspired by monsters and humans alike, particularly the monstrous and magical act of being loud in a world that would rather have people be quiet and complacent. My goal is to create art for those on the outside, on the edges and margins, by exposing those parts of our identities that we often feel we must hide.

The two mediums I most often use are watercolor and acrylic. Watercolor necessitates deliberate planning; it is painful to erase a mistake. In one way that can feel very restrictive; however, I find it simultaneously freeing because it demands that I accept my choices and work with my “happy” accidents as part of the process. Acrylic is, by contrast, more malleable which allows my paintings to deviate from an original plan, and evolve on the canvas as I paint. My background in design informs my artistic process as an exercise in creating solutions for composition, and in using imagery for story telling and conveying emotions.
