I am an Ottawa artist specializing in colourful, imaginative art inspired by history, folklore, and the natural world. I recently graduated from the University of Ottawa with a master's degree in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. My research on Northern Renaissance art has certainly influenced my illustrative style. One of my objectives as an artist is to draw attention to little-known aspects of history, so that they will not be forgotten. My style is bold and delicate at the same time; I find satisfaction in rendering intricate detail, and I love to use bright, delicious-looking, jewel-tone colours. Much of my artwork uses conventionally beautiful aesthetics, but I also find beauty in the macabre and eerie. My style is not always consistent, but that is what I find exciting about art; there are no rules or boundaries…just imagination.
