I am a mixed media artist currently working with glass, paintings, and collage. I’m also a member of the Mississauga Arts Council and a Graduate of Sheridan College, Crafts & Design program.

Painting was my introduction to the art world. It was something I just did for myself and slowly got recognition for. Only then did it  become more serious with shows and exhibitions.

Sheridan College encouraged me to explore my creative side . I took an Art Fundamentals program and to my surprise excelled in three dimensional design. Trying to follow this strength, I started looking for a medium that would be best for this and found myself standing in the doorway of a glassblowing studio. Here I learned how to expand my ideas and concepts from paper into one of a kind 3D forms.

Working with both mediums in painting and glass has allowed for a better exploration of self expression in one way that the other could not.
