I am a Calgary based artist and mom to two little ones. I love to paint and draw, and have a background in fine arts with a BFA from Mount Allison University. Portraits are a favourite subject matter for they can capture memories of the subject in ways that are both playful and representational of that individual's personality.
On a particularly frazzled day as a new mom, my cousin tried to comfort me with a gentle reminder that the while days are long, the years are short. I can confidently say that I took in none of her advice in at the time, but have grown to understand it on a deep level over the years as I've watched my kids grow. It's little things and fleeting moments that can so perfectly describe a person, and it would be a privilege to capture these for you and your family too.
