I am an artist living and working in Hamilton. I’ve been an artist all of my life, starting with sketches and drawings as a child. I developed my own sense of fashion as a teen, and often designed, painted and styled my own clothing. I graduated Fashion Arts and worked in theatre costuming for 4 years working for The Shaw Festival and Theatre Aquarius productions. Presently, I design and upscale fashions and accessories. I run an Etsy store, sell items at local markets from my orange ‘82 VW Westy (“Vincent Van-Go”) and have a studio space at The Cotton Factory in Hamilton.

I made a sculpted earring inspired by Madonna for the 2021 tv series remake “Punky Brewster.”  It can be seen on Soleil Moon Frye in the episode “80’s Block Party.”Maya Rudolph, Alexis Hearst and Lindsay Parker (from Yahoo music & AXS TV - Totally 80s) have also been customers of mine.

As a self-taught artist, I enjoy experimenting in different media and developing new skills.  I would like to incorporate valuable messages into my art that bring positive influences to people.
