Artist Statement: We are very lucky to live in one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada! No matter which direction you go, there are breathtaking sights. So many beautiful images that I have collected in my mind from road trips have inspired this exhibit.

About the Artist: I was born in 1980 in a small town called Pilger, just outside of Humoldt, Saskatchewan. 1994 I moved out to Vancouver island with my parents. After high school I bounced around moving towns several times on my own, but now have found my forever home in beautiful Victoria BC.

The summer of 2009 was when I picked up my first paint brush. And the fascination of applying colours and shapes to canvas totally took over me! I couldn’t get enough. Within months others were interested in my quirky colourful creations and it just kept me motivated. Over time I have put on a few of my own art shows with musicians playing and also lucky to have media coverage. I also attended a few street markets both in Port Alberni and Parksville.

In 2012 I moved out to Strathmore Alberta to partake in casual once a week art classes which my sister ran called Wheatland Society of Arts. It was so fun to be around fellow artists and learning! In the fall of 2014, I had moved back to Victoria BC (for the 3rd time) and am still painting up a storm!! With no intentions to slow down.
