Artist Bio  1

Edith has always been creative and while in high school she was accepted the  C.W Jefferys’ intensive art program, which at that time was a vocational art school that offered art 3 hours per day for selected students. 

 

This career choice was short-lived as her father told her she would never make a living being an artist (and he was wrong), she was pulled out of high school early to join the family office supply business, during which Edith won Canadian Entrepreneur of the year in 1999 in the turnaround category. 

 

Due to health reasons, Edith had to stop working in 2010 and has worked on her art since. Art has been a release for Edith who suffers from Complex PTSD, she has poured all her emotion into her work during her healing process, her series Emotional Ribbons is an explosion of joy and release. 

 

Edith's artwork is often seen in movies and television productions.
