Artist Bio

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Vancouver in 2000. I studied at the Cape Technikon as a graphic designer before moving on to pursue the Fine Arts. For me ART is my imagination. It is always an expression of something; whether an idea, image or feeling. Flowers are my passion and I strive for a simplicity within my work while being unique. I enjoy working with colors, reflections, shadows and light. Painting predominantly in acrylics and mixed media, I hope to inspire thought and to evoke the viewers’ emotions through visual imagery. For the past six years, I have participated in the “Vancouver Eastside Culture Crawl” and “Artists in Our Midst”.


My exhibits include three group shows as well as 2 solo shows at the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery, a group show at the Amelia Douglas Gallery and a solo show at the Jericho Arts Centre. I have also participated in Art Vancouver and Vancouver Interior Design Show as well as doing many commissions for private homes. My work can be viewed at lmdesignsstudio.com
