As a multi-disciplinary artist, I embrace all forms of art as an important means of interpreting our internal and external world. I have facilitated ECA visual arts programs, community outreach programs, and corporate art activities. I was former owner and operator of 4Cats art studio hosting camps, classes and arts events for youth and adults ( 4CatsMontroyal) I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History (UCT) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing (Concordia).

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

In my workshops and classes, we explore colour, layering and sculpture by experimenting with a variety of materials. Emphasis is on learning to think spatially and creatively through observation of the surroundings and converting those observations to imaginative design. Observation skills are developed mostly through compositional skills, through collage & printmaking, and colour juxtaposition through painting. Drawing is used to help formulate ideas and clay to formulate these ideas into 3-D art forms. My approach is to work collaboratively with teachers particularly when it comes to themes and budget. Aside from teaching drawing and painting skills ( watercolour, acrylic, tempura) my workshops have included techniques using ceramics, polymer clay, papier mâché and stop motion animation- all of which are adaptable to zoom!
