My paintings are abstract interpretations of Yukon landscapes and places. I work in acrylics, watercolours, and oil paints. Using intense colour combinations in all my artworks is a way for me to express how I feel about living in the Yukon and helps me define the wildness of this place in my own way.
I have self published two colouring books, "Colour the Yukon" and "House and Home", a colouring book inspired by unique houses in Whitehorse.
My studio practice is operated out of my home in Whitehorse and I am inspired by the trails and trees that surround it. My family and I spend our summers camping and hiking around the Yukon and our winters ice fishing and snowshoeing. I am a longtime Yukoner, so I’m grateful to be able to share all my childhood experiences with my own kids. I wouldn’t live anywhere else.
