Originally from Barrie, I moved to Vancouver after graduating from the BBA program at Wilfrid Laurier University in order to snowboard and find a job.. but mostly snowboard. It was in Vancouver that I applied to be an artist with Paint Nite, and soon a part-time position became a full-time passion. So naturally, when I moved back to my University town of Kitchener-Waterloo, I decided to bring Paint Nite with me! I have since brought Paint Nite to surrounding areas such as Cambridge and Guelph, and most recently back to my home town of Barrie.
I have an interest in anything creative and painting has always been a hobby of mine. I have experimented with water colours and oils, but painting with acrylics has always been my favourite. With years of experience, practice, and only a little fine arts education, I firmly believe (and am the prime example) that anyone can paint. So even if you've never picked up a paintbrush before, pick that up in one hand and a wine glass in the other - because drinking creatively with me is a great way to start painting!
