Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I have been involved with art since a very young age, constantly playing with different mediums and enjoying creating artwork. I am primarily a self-taught artist though I consistently took art courses during my education. Throughout school I was always taking visual arts courses to offset the pressures of education. I won various accolades including scholarships, produced murals, and continued to explore my creative expression as a form of pleasure and release. In university my heart still belonged to art as I pursued a different career path. As an attempt to regain balance in my life after suffering health setbacks I returned to art and exploring nature to find peace and balance in my life.
As request arose for commissions and regular artwork, I decided to pursue art more seriously, which lead to the creation of Aurora Sky Art. Aurora Sky Art allows me to always continue to have an artistic outlet and to share my passions with the world. When I am not in the mountains hiking, camping , snowboarding, dirt biking, sledding or longboarding you will find me in my studio creating art which is inspired by my experiences in the local mountain ranges. The ideas behind pieces are roused by emotions, experiences, or my adventures in nature. These instances and experiences allow me to tap into my artistic self and share it with you all.
My work has a mixed media focus. The foundation of my artwork uses acrylic paint which is then complimented by metal leaf, texture mediums, gels, watercolor washes, resins and varnishes.
I aim to evoke a sense of familiarity and emotional connection in my work though building representative abstract landscapes using a surreal lens.
