I was born and raised in Toronto and currently reside there with my husband and two children. I have studied at the Ontario College of Art & Design University. I enjoy paintings by expressionist abstract artists. Their bright and bold colors are an inspiration in my work. I paint by intuition and my emotions guide me throughout my work. I reflect on the outside world from within and I explore new paths and bring objects to the surface. The canvas is my laboratory. Oil and acrylics are my tools. I enjoy the fluidity, smoothness and the fast pace of using these mediums. I let my creativity evolve at each stage of the process, until an image emerges.
Danielle was very collaborative when deciding what I wanted to commission. I gave her the color scheme of my home and pictures of my existing artwork and together we landed upon the most beautiful colored rose. She kept me updated via photos during the project and the finished product is simply beautiful and looks perfect in my entryway.
