Visual Art – Vancouver, BC

Born in Calgary, AB, Canada, I was raised both in the prairies, as well as the interior of BC before moving to Vancouver at 17. Immediately upon arriving, I began college at the Art Institute of Vancouver (currently LaSalle College) where I studied Animation Art and Design. Two years of full time, year round school and a terrible job at Pizza Hut later, I graduated Best in Show and with two new job offers in hand. I started working as a junior animator on Disney and Cartoon Network animated series such as, "Slugterra", &, "Endangered Species". As time passed, I moved up the corporate ladder, different companies and productions came and went and now, five years later, I am directing animation for Disney's incredibly successful TV series, Elena of Avalor. Throughout my life I have experimented with various artistic mediums such as painting, sketching, photography, digital art, lampworking, pottery throwing, comics, and writing, but currently my photography and illustration has taken over. My photography is inspired by truth–I try my best to keep my photos as unedited as I can, I do not manipulate what is seen and I even try and stay away from cropping. As for illustration, I'm inspired by women, nature and the animal kingdom and love to play with different colour palettes, textures and combinations. ...more
