Named after Merle “Ting” Tingley, London Free Press’ editorial cartoonist from 1948 to 1986, Tingfest is an annual three-week celebration curated by TAP Centre for Creativity that showcases the work of past, present and future comic and graphic artists from Southwestern Ontario.

While this festival is an homage to Ting’s work and influence on generations of artists, Tingfest is a rare forum for emerging and established artists to present their work to the public through a gallery show that is complemented with free events and programs.

Born and raised in Ottawa, I followed my heart to Toronto, had a baby, and then fled to London, Ontario to indulge in a reasonable cost of living and the much needed tranquility that I craved with the new chaos of having a kid.


I switched to digital art from acrylic painting to adjust to the new work flow of parenting. What started out as a pragmatic choice ended up reinvigorating my practice and helped to carve out a new direction and a more illustrative style.


Playing with colour, imagination and humour,  I have fun turning the results into prints, greeting cards, tees, totes and comics.
