PLAYING AT THE INTERSECTION OF CREATIVITY & WELLBEING

  I am a Vancouver (Canada) based multidisciplinary artist, whose personal practice focuses on the health and wellbeing benefits of creativity.   

A daily exploration of creativity, in various mediums, has become my way of coping and dealing with the challenge of living with a newly acquired brain injury (aka Bertha.) 

This site is a reflection of my creative and chaotic brain. I hope you enjoy our creations.

It is that season again everyone.   That season when I empty out my studio of my year long creative endeavours and our Philanthropic Creative Store flings it's doors open and you get to gift to one of two wonderful organization every time you buy art (La Gonave Community and Child Association in Haiti & Hugabull Advocacy and Rescue Society).   

This year I’m doing things a little bit differently to make it much easier on myself.  The event will start with 4 days coinciding with the East Side Culture Crawl a local art festival with over 500 participating artists.  Come say hello, browse the art and check out my studio space

Where:        Octopus Studios (393 Powell Street, Vancouver, BC)

When:         Thursday, November 14th 2019 (5 pm to 10 pm)

I’ve always thought when you experience loss…you grieve it with the goal of eventually rebuilding yourself so you can live a life of meaning despite the loss. But what happens when the barrage of loss is endless? What happens when you don’t get a reprieve from loss? What happens when the things you lose are the very meaning of life? .


Recently, my husband and I were advised that our four-year journey to pursue adopting a child has officially come to a permanent end. The social worker and the team at the Ministry felt that my limitations and disability were so profound and disadvantageous as to make me an unfit potential adoptive parent. .

I’m still reeling. I don’t have the words to describe how painful …raw …enraged …despondent …hollow …just ..so ..so …uugghhh …I don’t have the words for it.
One moment of fucking inattention by a stranger…one moment…and somehow, I’m left holding the bag. Paying the massive price, the univ...

I'm really really really proud of these. It has taken me 3 years to figure out how to take this idea of gold wood rings in encaustic and make it a reality. Honest to goodness I needed to be an encaustic artist, a photographer, a printmaker, a mixed media artist....a lover of propane torches and more than a little bit crazy to get to this point.

Looking forward to debuting my Incremental Creativity series at the East Side Culture Crawl 2019 running November 14th to 17th...I will as usual be huddled in my spot at Octopus Studios (393 Powell St, Vancouver, BC)

If you have followed me for any time you know I only sell my work once a year at the Eastside Culture Crawl 2019.....and that all proceeds benefit both La Gonave Community & Child Association and Hugabull Advocacy & Rescue Society.  Fingers crossed others love this series as much as I do....otherwise friends and family beware...y'all are getting th...
