Artist and art Instructor

BFA with Distinctions, Concordia University

8 years of teaching adult education fine art courses

I am a full time practicing visual artist and teacher, working with colour pencil and graphite on paper on a full-time basis since 2012. The works I draw are large in scale and often take hundreds of hours to complete, as the medium requires numerous layers of colour and the art is often done only with the fine point of the pencil. I use only the highest quality professional colour pencils with high light fastness and colour retention.  Having created work for public installations, public and private gallery exhibitions and private and public collections, my subject both portrait and botanical and I use drawing as a means to address issues that connect us to our community and our natural environment.

 

I hold a Diploma in Interior Design, a BFA with distinctions and a Graduate Diploma in Art Education from Concordia University, Montreal, and an M.Ed. from UBC.
