I create art to record what I love, what I want to remember, and what I want to share.
My acrylic paintings explore subjects that evoke happiness. I believe happy art can transplant the viewer into that same mind space. Few things make me as happy as animals, especially dogs. I paint animals for the people who love them and for those who don’t know they do yet.
My art is meant to connect you to the subject; to fill you with a sense of familiarity and nostalgia even though you’ve never met. Through the use of colour and thoughtful composition I can relate their unique energy. The variety of my brushstrokes range from swift and playful, to soft and intentional, helping to describe each subject’s distinct personality.
My mission is to share love by surrounding people with paintings of happiness; whether it be one of the comfortable old pooch or of the comfortable old couch.
Attaining happiness is a global pursuit and I am doing just that; one (dog) painting at a time.
Originally from Ottawa, I now live in Carleton Place with my dog, Jolene and my husband. I am a 2021 graduate from the Ottawa School of Art.
