How long have you been a mixed media artist?
How has art impacted or enhanced your life?
Art has had a tremendous impact on my life. As a sufferer of a chronic illness, art has provided a much needed outlet. An opportunity to vent, to create, and center myself. Not only that, the amazing art community has enabled me to meet some wonderful like-minded people, who are now lifelong friends.

Who are some of your favorite mixed media artists?
Tell us about your creative process.
Creating almost always starts with an emotion for me. I tend to look at art as a form of therapy, so whatever Im feeling gets left on the page. Once I know what I want to express, I choose colours to suit the mood – bright & cheerful colours to portray a happy emotion, dark, powerful colours to represent the tough times. I then layer those colours, through stenciling, stamping, and such, and am well on my way.
What makes your mixed-media art unique?
I honestly believe all artists’ works are unique. We all leave a little of ourselves behind when we work, so how can our creations not be unique?
