Art to Zucchini and Everything in Between
I’m an illustrator who lives beside the sea on the west coast of Canada with my family and an imaginary dog. Sometimes two. I have a background in animation, film and graphic design. I also love to take photographs, which gets me away from my desk with all those teeny, tiny bits of paper!
I’m a Canadian artist living by the sea on Vancouver Island, creating paintings, collages, and photographs that are bold and colour-infused. All my work, aside from the photography, is proudly handmade with scissors, glue and paint; many with 3-dimensional aspects.
With a background in animation, feature films, television and theatre, my many creative pursuits have led me to the joys of illustration. Colour, wit and a good dose of play are what I aim for, using collage, paint and a strong graphic design sensibility. For the past ten years, I’ve contributed illustrations to numerous magazines and newspapers on a regular basis with editorial, fashion and botanical themes, while my heart still belongs to children’s illustration.
I’ve created a line of greeting cards, which you can find at my Etsy shop, and I’m delighted to be creating an ongoing series of photo-collaged jigsaw puzzles for Cobble Hill Puzzles/Outset Media. I also write the blog ‘Children’s Illustration‘ with author/illustrator extraordinaire Julie Fortenberry. You can find all my social media sites at the top of my home page, and my Instagram page has all my daily photographs.
