I am a multimedia artist that works primarily with textiles; specifically large-scale fabric painting, piece work, and embroidery. I like to use imagery, subject matter, and compositions commonly depicted in famous works of classical art. Combining these with my own slightly crude drawing style, and my love of animals and nature, I create individualistic versions of classic scenes you see repeated in art history.

Previously she spent three years getting her advanced diploma in Craft & Design (Textiles) at Sheridan College in Oakville and continues to create art on the side, as much as she can.
