Since a young age I have been drawn towards the healing arts. This natural inclination has led me into a career as physiotherapist and artist. I have been inspired and influenced by folk tales, myths and stories and in those I have found a profoundly healing and transformative power which drives my creative work. Together with my partner Jay Bell Redbird we are blissfully painting in our studio in Toronto and Cape Breton. I met Rolf Bouman through my partner Jay and even thou I am not of First Nations origin, Rolf purchase much of my artwork as I concentrate on First Nations subjects, mainly painting people and their connection to nature. On many occasions I have collaborated with my partner Jay in order to create meaningful First Nations paintings.
