I am a travelling artist and teacher who has taken an extended interest in the Yukon and its culturally and socially diverse community. After studying art and education at Brock University in Ontario I have travelled through Canada and other countries teaching children of all ages Visual Art and Music alongside life and language skills. As a Visual artist the majority of work I do is with paint. Whether it's a small scale canvas or a large mural I think a successful work of art is a raw representation of the artist's, thoughts, emotions, actions or opinions. As a teacher I try to model inquiry and self assessment in order to regain a natural state of inquisition and provide students with the tools to form their own answers. I place an emphasis on authentic products with a specific audience.
