A few of the things that count:
I have loved just about every form of visual creativity for as long as I can remember. I was raised in a very creative family. My mother sews, embroiders, quilts & hooks rugs, my father is a genius technical draftsman & my sisters paint, make jewelry & knit. I would like to think I have inherited a generous amount of each of their creative energy.
I studied Textiles, Graphic Design & Art History at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design.
I derive much of my inspiration from the fantastical imaginings of my 2 ferociously loved little ones.
I frequently purchase books based solely on their front covers & bottles of wine based on their labels.
I live in Montreal, but spend many a moment reminiscing of younger years on a sunny, colourful little island in the Caribbean.
