Jewels was born and raised in Goulais River, nestled between the Searchmont Mountains and Lake Superior in Northern Ontario. She developed a deep love of nature and animals from an early age and subsequently still lives in the beautiful Bellevue Valley. Swimming in the richness of the area, she ran barefoot and rode horses bareback in the river, writing poetry and sketching in the swamp behind her home, as the smells, sounds and images permeated her creative mind forming her style. Her humble earthy surroundings and deep connection with earth are the foundation, framework and the essence of her artwork. Best known for her sculptural, multimedia, monochromatic and interpretations of nature, themes of moons, talking trees, root systems, rippling streams, singing stones, the earth’s texture, energy, movement and symbolic shapes will speak to you. Drawn by her love of the natural world Jewels studied Fine Art and Psychology in order to deepen her knowledge of the world around her. Jewel’s art reflects every moment, of every experience, all rooted in nature. The Universe's energy flows through her onto the canvas, revealing the divine which lies within. Jewels believes that art is the collaboration of the artwork, the artist and the viewer. The message and composition are not intentional and lies within the unconscious. The viewers’ perceptions and emotions are subjective. Each work will have an individual meaning within its own relevant framing. Art is an experience that speaks its own language, a moment of magic and mystique.
