I am a self taught fine artist born and raised in the beautiful rural Langley B.C. I feel that I was born with art flowing from me and I couldn’t stop it if I tried.
My most favourite part of being an artist is exploration and my work reflects this. Unlike many other artists I don’t often work in a large series that is consistent in style and technique unless I feel there is an important story to be told. I prefer to be open to inspiration from many subjects, experiences and perspectives. Exploration of different techniques, applications, and surfaces also drive me to create, grow and find joy in what I do.
I am inspired by so many different aspects of life - form, colour, movement, ideas, feelings - it can be difficult to pick and choose what I concentrate my attention on, so when I do you can be sure there’s a lot that goes into one of my creations underneath what your eye reveals to you. I do have a soft spot for natural forms, animals and expressing how meaningful the welfare of our planet and it’s life is to me.
Aside from my personal works, I offer my skills to create custom commissioned art for my clients.
I created my business after graduating from a three year graphic design program in 2003. Utilizing my natural skills for fine art and my finely tuned diverse design skills, I left my business open to a vast array of unique projects and clients. My passion for interior design also naturally found it’s way into my creative life and I am now successfully designing beautiful, high quality, functional and unique spaces, surfaces, products and decor.
Working with you to create a product that is satisfying, meaningful and rewarding to both of us is what Vivo Fine Art & Design is all about!
I am open to many kinds of creative projects and I’m happy to help bring to life your ideas or work with you to create the perfect image or space.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or to discuss an idea that you have.
