I lost my sister, Sarah, in 2014 and life will never be the same. She was the mother of three beautiful babies, and cherished every moment she had with them.

I struggled for so long to regain a grip on what the whole point of life is.  I have been living in such a deep, dark depression, I am now choosing to embark on a journey to celebrate life instead of resenting it – one day at a time, each and every day.

With the National Day Calendar as my guide, my goal is to celebrate each National Day  of 2017 in Sarah’s honour.

I am a mixed media artist with a BFA from Memorial University, from Newfoundland, Canada.
I am currently studying Art Therapy in Vancouver, B.C, on the west coast of the country

My work has been featured on the cover of Riddle Fence Magazine, in several galleries including The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery & Gallery 24, and my t-shirts can be purchased at Johnny Ruth Living Planet on Water Street in St. John’s
