My creative voice uses the tools of photography and painting to digitally imagine the sentience of human beings. My art process begins with assembling and overlaying a collection of original photographs, then painting the surface with digital brushes and folding up the shapes to transform into an intuitive, visual message. A message to visualize the intangible emotions/feelings and concepts that often take our breath away – grief, change, faith, time, transformation, spirit, love.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Emily Carr University of Art & Design and have attended The Banff Centre for Art and Creativity. I was also a filmmaker for many years and my work toured extensively in film festivals. I have recently retired from over 20 years of teaching university level visual/graphic design courses in Vancouver. I have exhibited locally and in the Lower Mainland.
