“Through my art I attempt to capture feelings, namely the fleeting ones (where a whiff of a nondescript scent floats by and suddenly a familiar “deja-vu” feeling washes over you and leaves as fast as it came) using and experimenting with whatever materials come my way. I am inspired by the juxtaposition of images seemingly innocent (such as those found in children’s books) with darker themes that question morality, relationships, emotion and religion.” (Kaitlyn Lebrun)
