AS A TEACHER

My teaching style is relaxed and fun, with an aim to encourage each student’s strengths, find their self-expression as well as moving past their stumbling blocks.

AS AN ARTIST

I enjoy painting anything and everything in particular people. I also enjoy experimenting with different mediums such as oils, acrylics, gouache, oil pastels, and encaustics. I am currently working on a new body of work from my Northern Beaches studio.

EXPERIENCE

I was born in Canada where I studied Illustration Art at Sheridan College Ontario. My art experience includes working as a graphic artist, illustrator, art director, singer/songwriter, fine artist, exhibition curator and art teacher. I founded/directed Gallery Cats Studios Art School in Brookvale where I have been teaching classes to all ages for the past 10 years.
