I’m sure you have heard of creating a vision board, before. But, if you haven’t, it’s a motivational tool that helps you visualize where it is you are going and what you want most in life. They are a very effective tool.
How to get out of your own way and start creating the work that lights you up
I have found that the absolute best way to learn is by doing… by making a lot of work, imperfectly. This can be a challenging thing to do. Here, I share some of my observations, learnings, and advice to help you along the way.
The values driving everything I do – in life and in business
My values run through all areas of my life. They are a through-line to everything that I am, strive to be, and do. They are represented in how I show up, how I interact with others, the things that I wear, and the work that I make.
Why do I think it’s important to know your values? When you know them, you will feel grounded in your life and clear on where you want to put your energy and on how you want to show up.Your values become a check by which you can ensure all areas of your life are aligned.
A new series reflecting on loss, memory, seasons, and journeys
I have been spending much time in the studio working on a new series of landscapes. The images are based on photos, sketches, notes, and memories of the drive between Ottawa and Montreal, which I did so much of over the year that my mom was sick. While there were many different layers of that year’s experience that I could choose to represent in the work, it was the feeling of watching the seasons pass by along the road that I kept coming back to as core to my own personal story.
How you can feel accompanied and guided day-to-day
Your Guiding Energy is the essence of all that you aspire to be, how you intend to show up in your life, who you dream most to be, what you most wish to do. You can channel it anytime you need to. For comfort or for strength, it is available to you whenever you need.

The first things I notice about anything seem to be: mood, colour, and light. I just love them – whether in life, in a movie, or in a book. Together, they have the power to draw you into an imagined world. They can create magic.
