This is my first year participating in Edmonton's Art Walk. My medium of choice is acrylic on canvas; my style is abstract. I love large scale paintings. I am a self taught artist. I began experimenting with acrylic paint when I was 9 years old. Painting has always been my passion, although I put that passion aside to become a journeyman welder and subsequently a lawyer. I picked up the paint brush once again less than one year ago. My creative process is led by my intuition and always with music. I am inspired by change and transformation, especially by musicians, designers and artists who have fearlessly remained true to themselves over their careers like David Bowie, Jeremy Scott and Carmen Herrera.
