I am an oil painter and tattoo artist living, working, and playing in Duncan, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island, in unceded Coast Salish territory. I am now tattooing as a visiting artist at Golden Ghost Studio, the Cowichan Valley's first tattoo removal studio.
Before coming to tattooing I spent over a decade as a gallery artist, commission artist, and painting teacher. I’ve placed in The Art Renewal Center Annual Salon, The Portrait Society of Canada, and The Portrait Society of American annual competitions, among others. I also appeared in an episode of Star Portraits by Bravo! TV. For a number of years I ran a painting blog with my husband, David Gluck, called Painting Stuff to Look Like Stuff. We are still getting requests for access to old articles, so I have begun to rewrite them with the intention of posting them here.
My husband and I were lucky enough to get an apprenticeship with the excessively innovative and talented Joshua Carlton, and with that we made the jump to tattooing. We now divide our time between tattooing, painting, and raising our two kids.
