my philosophy

Art is about more than copying an example! The programs I deliver honour the process of art making. Rather than focusing on copying an end product, together we explore a medium, theme, or genre as a jumping off point.

I specialize in custom programming in-house.
You provide the s
pace, I provide the rest.

I am proud to offer custom bookings for corporate parties, private functions & events, and artist in residence opportunities in Edmonton and surrounding areas. I am also an approved vendor with Edmonton Public Schools, and offer a variety of 5 star rated in-school fieldtrips.


While in-house programming is my specialty, I do also love teaching registered workshops and weekly classes for students of all ages and abilities. You can find me teaching out of a variety of great locally owned venues. Check out my classes & workshops tab to learn more.

You can read more about me here, and read up on my philosophy, mission, vision, and values below.

I look forward to creating with you soon!



To Provide Top Quality Art Education & Experiences

My goal is to provide the best possible art education or customized event to people of all ages and abilities.


Lessons are thoughtfully developed to explore a theme, genre, medium, or art historical reference. By facilitating skill- and process- based projects, I put you in the driver's seat of your creative journey.



To Educate, Empower, and Inspire Creative Thinkers

I view myself as your partner in creating, and am here equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to take risks and find your own creative voice.



Be Creative
Be Curious
Be Intentional
Be sustainable
Be bold

​I believe every person has a creative bone in their body, and that creativity looks different for everyone. ArtVentures is all about helping you unleash that creativity, rather than defining it for you. I believe we need to be passionately curious, intentional in our practice, and bold enough to be unapologetically true to our core.

Environmental Sustainability is at the heart of ArtVentures. I make every effort to ensure materials are sustainably sourced, to create as little waste as possible, and opt for reusable materials over their single use alternatives whenever possible.

Fun fact! I am proud to serve on the board of directors for Waste Free Edmonton.
