Profile

BIOGRAPHY I was born in Canada but raised in Holland and South Africa before settling in Toronto. Drawing and colouring has been part of my life since I was very young and drew me to study at The Ontario College of Art. I love being a freelance illustrator- being asked to illustrate an article or poster is always an exciting new challenge. Making images that pop and that communicate immediately with he viewer is always my goal. I have recently started adding motion to my images which is a lot of fun. Lifestyle and fashion are my favourite themes and I love to interpret the people in my work as well as tactile objects in a unique way by using vibrant color, texture and detail. I am very inspired by People, Fashion, Opera, Ballet, Yoga, Animals, Nature, Cities and my ( vast) collection of magazines ( which I would rescue first if our house was on fire). Oh wait first the cat. In the last few years I have also started painting birds on a surprising objects like a Warbler on a Rolleiflex camera or a Starling on a Kokeshi doll. I love mixing up the digital ( illustration) with real paint on wood. My husband and I are now empty nesters and share our space with our old cat Sam. In Jan I was named as one of 30 inspiring illustrators to watch for in 2021 by Creative Boom ( Directory of Illustration) My work has been recognized by Print Magazine, The Art Director's Club of Canada and my image "Charlotte" at the Nutcracker was chosen to be featured on the web gallery of American Illustration. My Bird paintings were recently featured in Flow Magazine.
