I am a tattoo artist from Kelowna B.C. I prefer tattooing in a realistic style, in colour or black and grey. Animals, flowers, portraits and pretty much anything in nature!
I began tattooing in Kelowna in 2007, after completing my bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from UBC-O.
After leaving for a few years to embark on guests spots in Australia, and opening my own shop in Tofino, I returned and now have a studio Kelowna’s beautiful Kettle Valley.
Favourite styles: Polynesian Tribal/ Colour
I was born on the Gold Coast of Australia and grew up in a small coastal town on the north east coast of Australia.
Art has always been a major part of my life and I have enjoyed practicing various mediums as I have progressed through life. I painted various murals in small Café’s and sold paintings and portraits at farmers markets.
I discovered a love and passion for tattoos at quite a young age and often drew on myself with sharpie and henna ink throughout high school until I reached an age where I was finally able to get my first tattoo.
After moving across the globe to Kelowna, BC Canada, I started my career path in Tattooing and soon after found Erin at Sweet Siren Tattoo who has given me great guidance in the craft.
I feel incredibly lucky to have found a shop that is so welcoming and accepting and really focuses on pushing me to reach my full potential.
I have had many great achievements throughout my life that I am very proud of. One of them being my service to the Australian Defense Force which has shaped me into a disciplined and patient person however I can say with confidence that moving overseas and becoming a Tattoo Artist is by far, one of my greatest achievements in life so far and I am proud to be part of the Industry. Making people happy and giving them confidence through tattoos is without a doubt my favourite part about being a Tattooist. I love seeing how excited people get when
they finally get to see the finished product of their tattoo. I am not one to shy from all styles of tattooing however, my favourite styles are traditional Polynesian style tattoos, colour, and I am currently exploring the art of realism tattoos.
I strive to stay produce great, clean work for my clients as well as stay determined to go far in the Tattoo Industry and I am excited to see what the future will hold for me.
