I am a Professional Artist, having created 15,000 pieces of original artwork. I live and work in Mshkiigomaang (Curve Lake). I work in a range of mediums from flint, wood, stone, and leather; to paintings on canvas and paper including abstraction and life drawing; to photography, serigraphy, and offset lithography.

My art is influenced by 12,000 years of local artistic expression in the Kawarthas from Kinomagewapkong to Harold Town. My art has been published in books and on wine labels for Magnotta Wines. I have taught art classes across the County through Artists in the Classroom grants, notably at the Haliburton School of Art and Design over the past 23 years.

In a review in Quill and Quire Quotables, Laura Murray describes my illustrations as “liquid line drawings and magically lighted paintings.”
