I have always been an arts & crafts kind of person. Even as a child, I would either be drawing in my notebooks or making some type of craft during my spare time. After receiving my high school diploma, I moved to Ontario and worked as a computer support technician. Upon my return to Newfoundland I attended College of the North Atlantic (CNA) and graduated with a diploma in Multimedia Development. During that program I received the Aliant Women in Non-traditional IT Programs Scholarship. Two years later I graduated with a Visual Arts diploma and received the highest award from CNA, the President’s Medal of Excellence. My focus in art is printmaking, more specifically the relief process. Recently I have started to explore Newfoundland nature as the source of my inspiration, butterflies, flowers, wildlife, etc. My desire is to create prints that will evoke new realities to be appreciated by those who wish to enjoy my work.
