Art is and
always has been a passion of mine; it's something I've enjoyed since I was
really little. I am by no means a professional, nor does my art compare to some
of the extremely talented artists out there. However, it is something I
thoroughly enjoy and it's nice to now be able to share my drawings and works
with so many people.
As you can probably tell by the subjects of my drawings I have two great passions; horses, and most of all aviation.
I, as hundreds of young girls and women around the world do, appreciate the grace, elegance, and strength that horses possess. I hope to capture those elements in my drawings of these beautiful animals. My first 'real job' when I was younger was to walk ponies around at fairs and events for children's pony rides. I did so with pride, and to this day enjoy just being around these friendly, agile creatures. Maybe one day I'll get to have one of my own?
Aviation and flight; man has dreamed of flying since the beginning of time. Only just a century ago did we realize those dreams of taking to the skies; a remarkable feat. I have the privilege of holding a Glider Pilot's License in Canada, which I obtained in 2003, and a Private Pilot's License that I obtained a year later in 2004. I believe that everyone should be able to experience the indescribable freedom and feeling of flight by a person at least once in their lifetime. Unfortunately this is a hobby that few get to experience due to the costs associated with it, and so I am thankful that I am one of the few to able to achieve this dream. For me it was possible because of the scholarship I obtained through the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. I continue to fly whenever possible, and hope to pursue an aviation-related career path in the future. I am currently working at my local Flying Club as a Dispatcher where I have the pleasure of seeing others realize their dreams of becoming pilots each and every day. I also volunteer regularly with Vintage Wings of Canada- an exceptional foundation formed with great appreciation and dedication to the world of aviation. They have been kind enough to give me the opportunity to showcase my drawings of their pristine aircraft, by making my prints available for sale at their hangar in Gatineau, Quebec. For this, I am very grateful.
Apart from high school art classes I have had no formal art training. My skills have always come, and continue to come, through the observation of other artist's techniques, and simply trial and error. And so, with each and every drawing I complete I learn something new. My skills and techniques are ever-evolving, as is everyday life. I welcome any comments or criticism regarding my artwork, as this will only help me to improve. I'm 24 years old; I still have a lot to learn!
