I was born in Toronto and raised and educated in Calgary, AB Canada. Following a long career in fashion I opened a Art Studio in 2007 called My “Escape” Art. In 2009 My “Escape” Art (Where Lines Meet Designs) was incorporated specializing in designs for greeting cards, clothing & accessories. As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by line art emphasizing form and outline over color, shading and texture.
My designs may consist of any image of straight and curved lines on a plain background without variation in shade or color. Although some designs may tend towards realism I feel more at home in the subconscious realm of abstract form. My work follows a long history of artistic expression predating the development of photography when line art was commonly used in illustrations and print publications. I enjoy the hand drawn designs utilizing bleach as the medium and textiles as the canvas. Other mediums include ink and acrylic on paper and canvas. The embroidered designs are digitally reproduced however every reproduction is a unique garment. All designs are original works of art. No two are the same. My work has been seen on television, in print, at hotels and convention centres and is shared around the world in the United States, Japan and England.
