Two weeks after I was born in beautiful Victoria BC, my parent moved us to Fort St John BC and here is what I have called home ever since.
I have always had a love for art ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil.
I remember growing up watching both my mom and my Grandmother paint and draw. I was fascinated at the way they seemed to magically glide their brush across the paper and to me, create an image that had not one mistake.
My blood runs thick with generations of talented creators of beautiful art.
I have much to learn before I can compare to them but its something I am very proud of.
I deal with chronic pain and have experience many heartaches in my 35 years. Most of the time I paint to try and ease those heartaches. I try and paint myself happiness. Through waves and colours, animals and faces.
Sometimes its like another person takes over and creates something that even I am a bit taken back by.
Abstract is probably one of my favorite to paint because I love to see what others see or feel through the painting, and if there are ten people in front of one painting, they all see something different. It amazes me.
I never really wanted or planned to put myself out into the world of art for all to see as I was afraid of judgement. Afraid of failure. Afraid in general I guess.
But being that its just myself and my two kids I decided I needed to push past that and dive in. Mostly to show them that fear should never control you.
