About me


For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated with color and design. It wasn’t until I bought my first home, that I really became intrigued by decorative wall finishes. My passion then grew and I went on to study various "Decorative Painting techniques" with many skilled decorative artists. Many years later, I now have a growing business where I have established a strong network of professional’s including artists, designers, builders, contractors and insurance companies. These experiences have opened many doors, one of which is teaching "creative paint techniques" for my fifth year for the design program at Mohawk College.

This journey has continued. I have taken more courses, learned mural painting, and have continued to collaborate with many other artists on residential as well as commercial projects, including stores, hotels, gyms, yoga studios and many more. Our work has been featured in West magazine and I hope to soon have the time to create custom pieces.

At last, I feel truly blessed to be able to share my creativity and passion for decorative painting with my clients and students.
