I am a Winnipeg based, illustrator and portrait artist. I’ve been drawing portraits in pencil my entire life, but came to colored pencils in 2015. In February of 2020 I had an accident, that has left me with permanent damage to my dominant hand. Due to the damage in my dominant hand I now work with my non dominant hand.
During covid lockdowns, I decided to delve into a world I’d always dreamed of… illustrating children’s books.
In February of 2021, I decided to enroll in university and am currently studying at Emily Carr Univeristy of Arts and Design, focusing on Illustration.
While I’m passionately an artist, an avid crafter, a musician, and a licensed hairstylist, my day to day life revolves around the 3 greatest loves of my life, my husband of 20 years, and our 2 children.
