I grew up on a farm in central Manitoba, Canada and have since moved to the beautiful West Coast city of Vancouver, British Columbia. You will see alot of influences from both in my designs. I started out as a photographer with my main subjects being my animals. I love animals and enjoy incorporating them into my art and designs and making them a part of everyday life. I believe nature is the perfect design and we can learn alot from observing naturally occuring beautiful patterns! Now that I live in the city, I like to mix the urban and the natural. Most of my designs stem from a photograph I have taken or found items that I have re-purposed. I love to do a little bit of everything and feel like one design just leads to another. There are always new ideas and ways of presenting them!
