Gillian considers herself an emerging artist and attributes her artistic “metamorphosis” to the connective threads of her life: her profound love for her children and family, the patience and serenity of nature and each challenge life throws her way.
Although art is not her full-time job, Gillian is fortunate to have a career at Laurentian University that engages her and provides the stability she needs to support her family and continue creating. Over the past few years her artistic career has taken root and Gillian is privileged to have exhibited in solo shows and be supported by galleries in Northern Ontario. Her pieces have been sold to clients across the country.
When she isn’t creating, Gillian and her husband are experiencing nature by foot, ski, bike or paddle.
