about me

I am a Canadian visual artist from Kitchener, Ontario Canada. 

I moved to the US in 2014 to pursue a new adventure, reunite with my husband Dr. Michael Quaile  and currently live in Collegeville, Pennsylvania.


My work is primarily the result of my love for art; it is both a challenge and an outlet, a discipline and a passion.

My main interest is modern contemporary abstract art, I enjoy abstract expressionism, surrealism, figurative and impressionism styles.

I am not confined to one subject area, preferring to vary my projects and media. That said, acrylics is my favorite medium. I try to convey my own sense of reality or fantasy and hope to engage the viewer in sharing this pictorial illusion. I define my work as a balance between mastery of technique, an opinion to express and an emotional reaction.

Inspiration for me can pop up at any time and in any place.


I am a self-taught photographer and love to photograph nature, the sunrise and sunsets wherever I go. I am also a certified makeup artist, an engineer, a Yogi and lifelong beach and animal lover.

I have two children named Austin and Cyra and my three furr..ever best kitty friends Nina " the superstar",Bailey and Teddy.
