Studio E: Art + Design Studio E: Art + Design


My joy as an artist comes when I surprise myself, and those who view my work.

I love experimenting with graphics, composition, hue palettes and letter forms – combining, reimagining or simplifying elements. As my work evolves, I am discovering and uncovering the beauty, boldness, movement and rhythm of pure abstract forms. These simple elements have the power to create timeless imagery that can be interpreted in a fresh way with every viewing.

My latest work weaves abstracted letter forms through layers and space, with experimental colour palettes and formats.

I am grateful to paint regularly with a wonderful group of artists from the Comox Valley and Campbell River, called The Wet Paint Art Group. The non-stop art conversations and encouragement keep us fuelled and inspired. We are looking forward to showing our work again in 2023.

After studying visual communications at Grant MacEwan University and Alberta University of the Arts (formerly ACAD), I worked as a graphic designer and as a design educator at AUArts. I was awarded a fellowship from the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada in 2001 and Lecturer Emeritus from AUArts in 2011.
