I am an illustrator, print maker, painter and business owner based in beautiful Halifax Nova Scotia. Originally from Ontario I moved to Halifax to pursue my Bachelor of Fine Art at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. I spent my four years focusing on painting and photography, and when I graduated I happily decided to stay on the East Coast where folks are friendly, the arts community thrives, and the scenery is beautiful and inspiring. After ten years in Halifax I proudly consider myself a Nova Scotian.
Over the years my style has changed quite a bit as I moved from painting into illustration. My paintings have really become a combination of both my love for clean lines as well as my passion for colour and the possibilities of paint. I more commonly will work in water colours and pen, however when I get the chance to paint I take it, and love it! I am inspired by almost everything. I gather ideas from nature, vintage children’s book illustrations, modern children’s books, vintage poster designs, and screen printed gig posters. I mostly let my imagination take over and see what happens when I put my pencil to paper and follow my doodles until something stands out.
My current endeavours include my new business Double Dare Print Studio, for which I create the illustrations and screen print greeting cards and art prints. I take on commissioned work, and I am currently studying Graphic Design. My work is represented by a local gallery here in Halifax, Argyle Fine Art.
If you are interested in my work please get in touch with me via email firstname.lastname@example.org, as I do not yet have an online shop ( It’s in the works!). If you are interested in learning more about my business Double Dare Print Studio please visit our website and online shop.
