I am an Ojibwe or Ahnishnaabe artist based in Edmonton, Alberta. Having grown up in northern Manitoba, I gained an appreciation of nature and spent much of my free time drawing and experimenting with various media. In my early adulthood I began to explore painting, and eventually developed my own style of Woodlands artwork. I enjoy the freedom of the abstract style and creating images with sharply contrasting colors or smooth blends. I have also been inspired by Inuit soapstone sculpture and folklore.
Northern Canada inspires much of my work. As a child, my family often went on fishing excursions, woodcutting, and explorations of Canada's pristine wilderness. I self-studied animals in great detail by reading every book I could find at the local library as a child, and have a great love for birds.
I have sold artwork to locations across the globe and have participated in various art shows in Alberta and Manitoba. I prefers to sell my art individually so I can enjoy meet the people and hear about what they like about my art.
I live with my husband, Lyndon, and my black cat, Maho, in Edmonton, Alberta.
