The only thing a painter can consistently do well is waste paint.

I don't remember ever not drawing. Since I can remember I've always had a pencil in my hands. Didn't matter if it was on a piece of paper, cardboard, my desk, my skin, canvas; I was always drawing in some way or another. 

I went into Fine Arts in 2012 right after high school since art was the only thing I could see myself pursuing. Five years later I graduated with a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) from the University of Ottawa and I'm now studying to become a teacher. The ultimate goal is to be able to teach art in high schools while continuing my practice. Although I am very busy with teacher's college, I still manage to draw multiple times a day, every day.

I can't see myself stopping anytime soon. Not ever, really. 

When it comes to painting, watercolour and ink are my mediums of choice. However I have dabbled with acrylics and oils (I hate using them though. My hat goes off to every successful Acrylic and Oil painter.). 

Hopefully this bio is long enough since I'd rather have the rest of my site speak for itself. 

Cheers,
