I have made art since I was a child, and was fortunate to have parents who nurtured my creativity. From my beginnings, doing landscapes for my aunts and uncles, to my op art phase in high school through to my career as a graphic designer and art director, there has always

been a paint brush or drawing tool in hand!

I graduated high school with a small art scholarship which convinced my Dad that it would be okay to go into the arts. I studied Graphic Design at Dawson College and Marketing and Public Relations at McGill University in Montreal. After a few years working in advertising agencies, I got the opportunity to open my own shop after winning a huge contract with The Royal Bank of Canada. I was honoured to win awards from Graphisme Quebec and The Art Directors Club of Toronto.

My life journey took away from that world after a devastating loss, and led me on me on a spiritual quest into the world of yoga, shamanism and visionary art, studying and painting with Alex & Alison Grey and Martina Hoffman & Robert Venosa.

I am a yoga teacher, a dancer and a creator of upcycled clothing

under the name Triptastica Couture 

 

There has never been a time when I haven't made art, but it's only recently that I have focused on painting and art making with an eye on professional success.
