Please enjoy browsing through the Artwork galleries, and the Links page where you can access my writings as well as the other Websites I've made. Feel free to Contact me with any comments, site design requests, or to book Chair Massage sessions with me...

Thanks for being here!

I have been creating drawings, paintings and writings all my life, and started learning Website design in 2003. I find it makes good use of both my visual and organizational skills, and it's nice to now be able to display my own work online. If you're interested in seeing some of the other sites I've built, the URLs are listed on the Links page. I am also posting my Poetry and Essays there (in .pdf format) for your reading entertainment. Should you be inclined to want copies of any of my Artwork, Poems or Essays, please just ASK me first. I'd like to uphold my idealistic notion that the things we create belong to everyone...

Requisite Bio blurb:

I was born in 1969 and grew up in Montreal, Quebec. In 1988 I left for Ontario to take a course in Recreation & Parks Operations. I thought I might like to be a Park Ranger so that I could spend my time outdoors. Oddly enough I have ended up mostly sitting in front of a computer, but I do love my garden and daily walks in the ravine. Nature inspires me!

From 1993 to 2000, I attended the University of Toronto, while parenting my wonderful son who was born in 1990. I graduated with an Honors BA degree in Psychoanalytic Thought, Religious Studies, and Fine Art Studio. I would like, at some point, to earn an MA in Counselling and practice Art Therapy. I am also interested in Energy Healing techniques and am now offering my services as a Certified Chair Massage Practitioner.

Currently I am focused on developing myself, both spiritually and practically, in ways I haven't been able to until now. I am busy challenging myself and evolving through my relationship with my partner as well as exploring a variety of business projects. This Website marks the first public showing of my artwork. I am honored to share it with you...
