Tansi, I was born in BC, Canada to a large family of Métis heritage. My ancestors on my Fathers’ side are from Fort Chipewyan and Scotland, and from Wales on my Mothers’ side.
I have managed to live my life doing what I love the most; most of the time. This usually involves a happy mix of art, community and beaches.
Art has always been an integral part of my life. Historically, the women in my family were known for their beautiful beading and sewing skills, I suppose that became part of my identity early on.
I love simple lines and bold colors, most of my past works include playful cartoon animals. I have also collaborated with students to create large works in a few of our local schools.
More recently, I have been using and building on the floral designs of my grandmother and have been exploring different mediums such as beadwork, soap stone carving, fabric sculpture and painting on drums.
The art works on this site have all been sold but I do have a selection of art cards, prints, magnets and posters that can be purchased through shops and galleries on Vancouver Island or by contacting me directly.
The prints and cards are locally printed on quality paper. Cards are blank inside and come with an envelope, prints with a backing board and matt if 11x17. Both are packaged in crystal clear bags.
Maarsi, thank you for your interest in my art works.
