Don’t ask the world what it needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
– Dr. Howard Thurman
Traditional Artistic Excellence
A lifetime of artistic discovery and appreciation.
Five years of formal art training.
Nearly a decade of exhibiting my fine art professionally.
Finding and celebrating beauty in the everyday is part of my DNA. When I paint, I pour part of myself onto the canvas. It is a privilege to be able to do something that is so fulfilling, and an honour to interact with those who resonate with the art that I create. My work has brightened lives and spaces in corners across Canada, the USA, England, Holland, South Africa, Indonesia and New Zealand. While I love to paint from personal inspiration, I also enjoy in working with clients to realize their personal inspirations and memories in paint.
Graphic Design. Done Better.
“First impressions are the only impressions.”
“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Phrases like these speak to the importance of sending the right message the first time. People do “judge a book by its cover”, and the wrong look can rapidly lose, bore or aggravate the viewer. I will work with you to provide your audience with material that invites a deeper, lingering look resulting in action. You have something worth saying; so let me ensure that your communication is clear, clean and captivating.
Illustrations That Go Beyond.
Whether you need light-hearted, whimsical images or meticulously detailed illustrations, I can make your dream a reality. With an attentive ear to your input and sensitivity to the tone of your book or project, I will provide relevant pictorial options to fit your framework, or I can breathe “life” into your own framework.
For more specialized illustration requirements, my background in Scientific and Technical Illustration equips me to accurately render to the exact specifications necessary. Together, we’ll draw it out.
