I am an artist inspired by nature, family and traditions. I feel strongly that creating art brings energy, inspiration and fun into people's lives. My goal is to create art to start a conversation, add a smile to someone's day, or make a house a home.

I love creating pieces using the technique of glass-on-glass for indoor display as well as outdoors for our 4 season Canadian climate. I am new to stained glass and use the copper foil method. I often combine the techniques of glass-on-glass with copper foil stained glass. I prefer to create from my imagination and experiences not patterns. Pieces may be similar but no two pieces will be exactly alike.
Glass-on-Glass technique on glass blocks. Add lights inside or display in natural light.
Glass-on-Glass inset in various woods. They include stakes to put it in the ground. The wood will weather naturally in the elements. The glass will catch the sun and sparkle and shine.
Glass-on-Glass set in a white picture frame will stand in a windowsill or in any display.
I am greatly inspired by family, traditions and the 4 seasons of the Canadian climate. My pencil, sketchbook and camera are always close by to capture whatever inspires me.
Unique, individually created items to enjoy yourself or gift to others.
Handpainted Stationary - originals - some may be similar but no two will be exactly alike. Cards and gift tags for all occassions.
I will paint on many different surfaces, new or old...wood, fabric, slate, tin etc.
Truly customize a gift or a home decoration. Repurposed items have their own sense of history to add to a project.
Ornaments - stained glass, glass-on-glass, a combination of both techniques, as well as painted ornaments. Great for holiday decorating but can be gifted year round to decorate a gift or commemorate a special occasion.
Commissioned work is a collaboration between myself and my client. The finished project may not reflect my personal artistic expression but will be handcrafted with our combined vision for your unique creation.
Book a class for yourself , or with others you are comfortable attending class with. My classroom is in my home and you are welcome to bring your snacks and refreshments, relax and enjoy being creative. I teach glass-on-glass technique , and beginner acrylic painting for fun and diy crafts. Contact me with your project ideas. I am currently not organizing events but am happy to create a class just for you or your group.
Travelling around Ontario? My art is currently on display and for sale at The Quilt Kitchen in Exeter and Amalgamation Acres in St.Helens. I will have "lavender" themed items for sale at Essentially Lavender, near Teeswater for their Christmas weekends in November.
