Creativity is nothing new for me. I've followed my creative urges most of my life, but rarely in a full-time focused way.
In 2019, I left my 10 year career as a life coach and what kept coming to me was "Just go paint, Ciel." Where this came from was likely from my intuition who new better than my rational brain what I needed.
I began in March 2019 and have not looked back. My first solo show was in October of that year. I paint full time and I have collectors all over North America.
in April 2022 I was awarded the highest level of distinction within the Federation of Canadian Artists. I now stand alongside Robert Bateman, Gaye Adams and Charlie Easton as fellow Senior Members.
My intuition guides me from start to finish and I really believe what I do is a spiritual experience.
