I’ve enjoyed the good fortune to grow up along the Humber River in Toronto and thanks to friends and family, to frequently visit the Niagara Escarpment, Muskoka and Kawartha regions of Ontario. Although I am educated in Interior Design, my heart has always been out in nature. While walking a trail or paddling my kayak my camera is always drawn to the infinite colour palettes and patterns I find along the way.
I am a self-taught photographer and a mother-taught seamstress. My mother was a stylish lady and she taught me the importance of classic styling, quality fabrics and fine finishing. I've sewn since I was a tween and have always loved satisfaction I get when all the pieces fit together.
In 2014 I began to experiment with digitally printing my photographs on silk to try to capture a sparkle of sunlight on water. The artwork evolved into my art wear and home decor enterprise, Water | Wood | Style, a design studio of textiles and silk fashion accessories using my original photographs.
I've recently moved to eastern Ontario and look forward to capturing this intriguing land of rivers, rocks and lakes. Last spring I had a fabulous trip to Newfoundland and will be adding a few new prints to the line this spring that try to capture the spirit of the place. My objective is to design products that capture and represent every corner of Canada and perhaps beyond.
I love to get feedback from my customers so if you have a special request for a particular colour or location just drop me a line.
