Read the Interview


I became familiar with the Canadian feminist website, Elle Beaver, when they did a piece on "The Malala Effect" art exhibition I had the pleasure of being a part of. I really enjoyed the site, as I too hope to empower women in my way, so I was thrilled when I was contacted for an interview. I felt as though the questions were some of the most thought provoking I had encountered thus far in my career. I'm really happy about it and I hope you enjoy it too! :D

COMMISSION


I was contacted last summer by a patron hoping to commission an original artwork for her friend who was getting married. The beautiful couple had had an exciting life together thus far and had lived and traveled in multiple locations around the world. The client wanted to incorporate the couple in a surrealistic or abstracted way so I designed this composition that camouflages a basic portrait of the couple amongst skylines of the most memorable cities of their life together. The first skyline starting from the bottom depicts Holyhead, UK which is near the husbands birthplace. The dark red skyline depicts Toronto which is where the bride was originally from. At this point their journey together begins. The dark blue skyline depicts Melbourne, Australia where the couple met and lived together for many years. The yellow skyline represent Brussels, Belgium where the couple spent more happy years together. The light blue skyline depicts Morocco where the gentleman proposed at sunset, hence the sunset colours. The light red skyline depicts Zug, Switzerland where they would be making their new home. And the light green skyline depicts Bodelwyddan Castle where they would be getting married. Lastly, the final strip features a lightly cloudy bright blue sky alluding to the beginning of their life together as a married couple. So much thought and many many weeks went into creating this beautiful piece. I hope the couple truly loves it! :)

This mixed media artwork was inspired by the Mykonos sunset my fiance Darren and I watched while visiting the Greek Islands. We had seen the famous Oia sunset the night before, and it was amazing, but this one felt more romantic and the colours were moving. I hope that the piece gives the viewers a sense of calm and comfort and that the beauty of the Greek Islands shines through the depiction.

COMMISSION


I am one lucky artist! I truly have the best fans and supporters out there. One such fan discovered my work through Etsy and, liking what he saw, decided to offer me a commission I will never forget! He was fond of 1930-40's Pin-Up art as well as the burlesque style and asked if I could combine these ideas into a representation of his beautiful wife. He said he wanted her to look at it and "see her as her inner burlesque queen". I truly believe this project was destined for me. I was made to create it. Not only was it a piece that featured a naturally beautiful woman but one that would celebrate her beauty and make her feel special. How many husbands are this adoring? I was touched. 

My lovely patron sent me many photos of his beautiful wife so that I could gain an understanding of her facial features and shape. Using a variety of resources I created this luxurious composition. He absolutely loved it and we decided it would look amazing in a sepia palette. I'm so thrilled with the results and I'm excited to share close up photos of the details! Keep scrolling to see them!
