Having a business on the internet seems to be the wave of the future,
 the only drawback is there is no personal contact with my customers. Because of this, I felt it important to share a little about myself with you as well as some of the other projects in my studio.
 
 Most of my younger years were spent  in the province of Ontario
 with my Dad, Mom and  older brother. We lived in the very small town of Stittsville, this is where I also have my fondest memories.
From a very young age, I was always encouraged to express myself,
and to have no fear of what others may think.
With these words instilled in me, my creative energy was boundless. When I was about 10 years old, I actually tried to sell graph paper pictures that  had all the little squares coloured in, in all sorts of great designs.
 Well, I thought I really had something wonderful, but I was shot down by the end of the block. Needless to say I was disappointed, but my parents enjoyed  them, and it didn't stop me from trying.
 
I have changed mediums numerous times , always finding
myself with a paint brush in hand. Perhaps because my Mom
is an artist, and I have seen the versatility of the art, I can't help but to keep coming back to it. I look at objects with the belief that
 anything with a surface can be painted and it opens up so many possibilities, everything has potential if you look for it.
 
I  have been interested in starting my own business for some time now, and I am excited to finally have reached that goal.
Coming up with the name of Canadian Tumbleweeds was the
easy part, it is very befitting for me and hopefully one that visitors to my web site will remember. 
 
I now find myself settled once again in Ontario, with a family of my own,
and the ability to pursue my dreams.
 This province is absolutely beautiful, and when combined with all of the energy I have at home with me, I am truly inspired.
 
I would like to take this chance to express my most heartfelt
thank-yous to everyone in my life, especially to
 
Mom and Dad for all of your ongoing love, support,
 and continous 'unbiased' compliments.
 
 Peter and Angie for welcoming me into your life with open arms, and an open mind.
 
 Nichole and Dan, for always being there, and for coming out here! You were the extra push that I needed.
  
 Jacob and Julia,
  your  love and acceptance has meant the world to me.
 Seeing life, through your eyes, is priceless.
 
Christopher,
 your endless love,  understanding and commitment to our happiness
 has truly enabled my dreams to come true.
Thanks too for putting up with all of my supplies, in all the wrong places!
 
I would also like to thank all the viewers,  for visiting
Canadian Tumbleweeds!
