Occupation: Artist, designer, craftswoman.
Education: Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Fine Art, minor in Fashion from the Nova Scotia
College of Art and Design.
I was getting my BFA, I focussed on painting and drawing as part of my major. Drawing has been my strength for most
of my life, which is helpful as it is has many different applications. It was through NSCAD that I got into textiles
which, unlike drawing, was something I hadn't been doing most of my life. All of these mediums have been useful to me
over the years.
Computers and the internet have had a significant
effect on my work, particularly when it comes to drawing. A lot of my colour work starts as hand-drawn line art which
I then coloured digitally, and even my black and white drawing get scanned into Photoshop for cropping and tidying in preparation
for prints. The internet has opened up the possibility of online printing to me, as well as the opportunity to promote
my work to a wider audience.
