This is a 30x40” acrylic painting on a gallery thick, 1.5" stretched canvas. When I moved to Toronto for a year in 2017, I found myself in a Michael's that was running a sale for easels. I bought one to add furniture to my living room and this big canvas sat blank on it for some time, waiting for a picture good enough to cover it with.
Every day I worked on my computer, the screensaver was one of the generic ones Apple gives you: an eagle flying against a waterfall. To me it was a brave declaration, a bold flap of the wings to a larger than life force, kinda like a small-town girl moving to the biggest city in Canada. I consider this the debut piece that reintroduced me to painting after a long hiatus from it.

Cleaning and care instructions:
- Paintings get dusty from time to time, that’s okay! I recommend making a micro-fibre cloth lightly damp with clean water, and very gently running it over the area(s) in question.
- When moving / working with canvas, it’s important to not let the work lean into anything etc. that could puncture, or distort the material.
- When it comes to prints, I highly recommend handling them with clean, or gloved hands, even the oils on our skin can impact the sheen and colouring of prints.
In the unfortunate case of returns and refunds, I will always do my best to ensure my collectors are taken care of! In the very rare circumstance of shipping follies and/or damage to work, I will work with clients directly to create a reasonable solution.
