About Me

I am a daughter, a sister , a friend, a mom to the most beautiful girl in the world and an artist.

More specifically I am a painter  who spontaneously was guided to pick up a paintbrush for the very first time, in the summer of 2013, upon my return from a trip to St Paul de Vence, in the South of France.  

Little did I know at the time that I would be channeling energies from Angels and other beings of light, that would serve to heal through my art.  In 2016 after a lifetime in the corporate world, I left it all behind to begin a career of passion and love with new challenges, life lessons and spiritual growth.  It is indeed a journey and  I have chosen to share it through my art.

 

My Journey started thousands of years ago, different lives and different lifetimes.  Though I have been a healer in many past lives, a priestess, a nun,  an artist who prayed for talent, I had many lessons to learn, and prior arrangements  to be made in order to bring me to where I am today.

 

When I paint i am  drawn to a palette of colours , divine sources channel energy and frequencies through me and guide my hands to create  all that is beautiful from and for the soul. I never know what I am going to paint or who it is for. I go into a trance like state and am not aware of the passage of time or what realm I travel to.

 

It has been communicated to me that my paintings channel energies and frequencies of high vibrations, healing, and also facilitates meditation. I do offer commission work specific to a collector's energy field.  I have been guided to share this journey that is still unfolding in beautiful and unexpected ways. 

My career as a self taught artist began in 2013 in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I began selling my work locally and on Saatchi Art in 2014.

In 2016 I was featured in the Pantone Colour of the Year on Saatchi and that's when I realized I truly wanted to paint full time. In 2016 I attended my first Artist Residency in Tuscany Italy, the experiences of those three months of being immersed in the culture and serene landscape, whilst living with artists from around the world will stay with me forever.  In 2017 I travelled to Italy again for another three months.  Then in 2018 I relocated to Spain where I now live and continue to paint.  That year I was also invited and accepted to join Singulart to sell my work. I continue to travel throughout Europe and always bring new experiences home with me. I am definitely a bit of a gypsy !

Throughout this time (2013 to present) I have exhibited my works live in Canada, Italy, France and Spain in curated exhibitions, solo exhibitions, group exhibitions as well as online exhibitions, and my art now hangs in private collections around the world.
