Mixed Media Art on Canvas


I know that I am the happiest when I am traveling but unfortunately I need to make the big bucks (or small bucks) and can’t travel all year round. I have tried to make changes in my life over the past few years to help make my life at home become more fulfilling. I found that  upon my return from trips I would soon sink into a funk, so in 2016 I decided to  grab life by the balls and sail right past ‘Funk Island’. By doing so I have tried to tap into my creative side. This is where my art comes in…

Although I have been artistic most of my life, I am relatively new to the art world. My favorite forms of art are both mixed media and pen and ink. I love how mixed media can take the best qualities from all art forms by bringing in colour, texture, and real images into one piece. And on the opposite spectrum, I enjoy the simplicity of pen and ink.

Since I started The Urban Gypsy I have been asked to create custom pieces as well as sell some of my art at local markets. Check out my pieces that I currently have for sale and if anything interests you, drop me a line.
