A Southern Ontario resident all of my life, after grade school I began my post secondary education at the University of Waterloo. In addition to a double major in Environment and Resource Studies and History, I also completed several studio courses in drawing, painting, and sculpture. I graduated in June of 2004 on the Dean's List with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies and Joint Honours degree in History. The following year I completed a Bachelor of Education from Queen's University. I am qualified as an intermediate/senior division history, visual art, and geography teacher. Currently I am employed at a York Region high school. I love my job; there is never a dull moment. I returned to school as a graduate student in the Queen's University Department of History. I enrolled in the thesis programme and received a Master of Arts degree in Canadian social history. The course work and research was challenging, but of course, I am thoroughly enjoyed every moment.When I was 4 years old my mom, taking a pre-emptive strike against poor posture, enrolled me in pre-school ballet class at the local dance studio. The lessons that I learned with Michele Green at The Dance Centre pervade many aspects of my life, including my artwork. I continue to study ballet with Ms. Fanny Ko at the Allegro Dance School in Markham, Ontario and with Mr. Ebon Gage at The Kingston Dance School in Kingston, Ontario. Art is something that I have always done. When I was younger, my dad would bring home stacks of scrap paper from work (blank on the back!) and I would draw horses, a lot of horses, in lieu of watching television. My art is more diverse today, but I believe all of my practice drawing horses did pay off! I have always created art because I'm compelled to; I can't imagine a time when that will not be true.
