I am a visual artist currently based in Newmarket/ Canada. Though I have studied and painted for just over 19 years I've been an artist my entire life. My story as my works are varied: realism impressionism in different mediums like oil, acrylic watercolor and charcoal. My culture, experience, and education allow me to create and express different ideas.

Every place and every scene in my life inspire me to create new artwork.  My works reflect warmth, affection, and energy which I see and feel in everything around me. My work is based on painting color relationships, values, composition and creates brush strokes.

During my career, I have explored various styles. My main direction is towards realism, but I am also interested in impressionism. I apply the vivid impressionist colors to my paintings.

In my work, I often express my passionate love for nature, flowers, still life, portrait and figure. I spend a great deal of time searching for images and their meanings and then try to reflect their beauty in my work. My paintings are the product of inspiration generated by place and experience; filtered through time and memory.

I’m member of the Society of Canadian Artist, Toronto Watercolor Society , North York Visual Artist and Newmarket Group of Artists . I have participated in several juried exhibitions in Canada and I have been honored to receive the Toronto Watercolor Society silver award and Signatured. My work is collected privately in the galleries and I have been a part of multiple group shows, as well as a solo exhibition in Toronto for a couple of years. I’m also instructor of painting in group and private studios in Toronto and now I have switched to being an online teacher.
