    THESE ARE A FEW OF THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS I AM ASKED.  IF YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH.

    1.  HOW DO I BUY AN ORIGINAL PAINTING?

    You can get in touch with me regarding any of my available works I have on my Available Paintings page.  I am also very open to working on specific commissions...

    2.  CAN I COMMISSION A PAINTING?  

    Yes!  Please email me to discuss.  Typically a commission takes me around 3-4 months to complete.  Once a 50% deposit has been received to begin, I will work on several source images for you to choose from that represent the direction for your piece.  The final 50% is due upon completion, once approved, prior to shipping.

    3.  PRINT QUALITY  &  DETAILS

    All reproductions in my shop are Giclee reproductions and are created using a huge, very fancy printer that uses a wide range of archival inks applied so finely you cannot see the DPI a bit and are very long-lasting.  They are printed on gorgeous high-quality 100% rag Hahnemühle archival paper.  

    All Reproductions are printed to order by my local print house which takes approx. 5-10 days.

    All monoprints in my shop are printed onto mylar paper.  I then paint on the mylar print with oil paints, allow this to dry and mount these onto archival mat board.  I have devised a way to mount mylar so that the beauty of the material and the painterly quality is showcased.  I do this by top slit-mounting the mylar sheet onto mat board.  I then provide an acid free foam core backer so that the monoprint is all ready for you to frame! 
    Due to the hand applied nature of the painted monoprint editions, each piece will vary slightly.

    4.  FRAMING

    I offer four different custom ash wood frames made specifically for the painted monoprint editions.  These can be purchased along with your monoprint in my shop, here.  I also offer framing for my paintings and prints.  Please email me for pricing.  

    All Framing is framed to order by my local frame shop which takes approx. 5-10 days.

    5.  YOU WOULD LIKE A LARGER PRINT?  

    The prints I offer from original paintings have been created by scanning the surface of my paintings with an Uberscanner, the most sophisticated fine art scanning technology in the world.  The quality achieved is incredible!  I am able to print to larger sizes if requested, within reason, as the quality of the print is very important to me.  Please email me to discuss. 

    6.  RETURNS

    Every order, commission, and sale is handled with care and as much clarity and transparency as possible.  My goal is for you to be completely thrilled with your purchase!  Because of this, all sales are final.   

    7.  WORKSHOPS  &  CLASSES

    The idea of hosting workshops has been something I have been considering for some time now and many people have approached me to provide this.  I would love to do this, I just require the appropriate space, and that requires my backyard studio to be built.  It is in the works, so please sign up for my mailing list to keep in touch and I will be sure to send out an email once I have something more lined up.

    8.  PRESS

    I love working with bloggers, editors, stylists, and writers!  There are many images on my site that you are free to use for your articles.  Please be sure to credit me.  If you have any questions, please email!  I am always open to interviews and love sharing my story with the world!

    9.  DESIGNERS  &  ART CONSULTANTS

    I am very familiar with the world of design and art consulting and really enjoy working in it!  I have worked with many design firms, designers and art consultants on high end large scale projects wordwide.  If you have something you are working on and would like to develop a presentation with me I would be more then happy to collaborate with you!  

    I am a painter living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my husband and two young daughters.  My studio is currently in the design stages.  It exists in my mind as a gorgeous light and fresh air filled space in my beautiful beach backyard.  Until it becomes a reality I work from our home in a much less light and fresh air filled space.  I bring light and nature in with my paints and work towards a day when I can be fully immersed in both.

    I was born in Ontario, Canada and received my BFA at the University of Waterloo.

    My work is an investigation into image and perception, touching on the ambiguity of texts - photographic, painterly or mnemonic, creating an encounter open to interpretation. I use glazing techniques, creating layers which capture a rich glow of light and a depth of colour.  I am constantly drawn to light and strive to always be living in it.

    My work has been exhibited across Canada and the United States and is included in many international collections.

    MY FAMILY


    My girls are now 5 and 7 and are a huge part of my life.  I feel it is very important to include them in my art making process as much as possible.  I want them to have a strong, determined, hard working role model so that they too can grow up and choose who they want to be and know that they can make that happen.


    MY PROCESS

    The process for me, how I build a painting, it is made up of many many stages and layers.  I work with thin layers, creating layer upon layer of glazes, until eventually I am happy with the result.  It takes many months of pushing and pulling, back and forth, closer and further until a painting is finally complete.  I think of these layers almost as you would a photograph.  Each layer represents the different colours in a photograph and how it is built up with many passes of colour to create a complete picture.  This photographic quality has always been of interest to me.  I take this a step further in paint, creating an abstracted reality where one can bring their own experience and memories to it.  Each viewer has their own unique experience.

    For me this process is so important.  It is my meditation.  My time of healing.  The simple gesture.  The physicality and repetition of it.  Mark making after mark making.  Soft blendings.  The viscosity and smell of the oils.  It triggers something in me, shutting out all the noise of the day.
