Growing up with a father working in commercial art, my childhood
was immersed in this wonderful world which helped shape my
experiences. Art was an important part of my upbringing; I was enrolled
in art programming at the age of three and learned to define my own
This art experience continued into my post secondary education where
I attended York University with studies in Visual/Fine Arts. Exposed to
sociology as part of the regular course outline, I found myself
understanding a language that spoke to me from the heart. I switched
disciplines and continued to serve communities through this new filter.
This lead me to earn a Bachelor of Arts, Sociology Degree with a
strong focus on courses within Visual/Fine Arts. I then spent several
years working within the social services community of the Greater
Toronto Area, as a caseworker and educational assistant for special
needs students. After years of working within this field, I really wanted
to incorporate art into the programming. Although this wasn't always
possible, I knew I would someday be combining my skills as a sociologist with my passion for art.
My passion is to assist you in realizing your artistic ability with a self-directed approach to creative expression. My goal is to utilize the skills I have acquired serving people for over 20 years, as tools to release their natural creativity and to accommodate anyone looking to express their truest self.
I am able to customize the artistic process to accommodate adults and children with cognitive and/or physical conditions.
