Located in Waterdown Ontario
It starts with a Bernese mountain dog 🇨🇦❤️.
Hi! I am a Canadian Artist living in Ontario, Canada. Like most people who do pet related things…I started because of my very special Bernese mountain dog Amelia. She and I have been a duo for 9 years and going strong! Seldom do people see me without her! In my desire to create memories of her and with her I started creating pieces that I saw value in. My home and work space is filled with these memories we created together. People with the same love for their animals began asking me to create pieces for them and so the story grows!
When asked to describe my work & experience; I seek longevity, quality materials & superb craftsmanship. I began a career in props creation for theatre early on. Earning my secondary education diploma in technical theatre at the prestigious Sheridan College theatre program. I majored in props building (& stage management). Discovering I had natural talent for creating & working with my hands, I perfected many skills from working with various materials, woodworking, sewing, carving & painting. It is these skills that I apply today in creating my own artwork in various materials & mediums.
I hope to help you create a memory of your best friend!
