Most artists start out life with an unusually strong attachment to drawing, painting and other visual forms of expression, and I was not any different. The affinity for the creative prompted me to enter into a design and graphics programme at Mount Royal college in Calgary, Alberta. Attaining high standards and finishing in 1978, I worked in the design field for some time continuing fine art pursuits on my own time.

The birth of my children preceded the set up of a home studio. Instead of spending my working hours outside the home I could get serious about painting. I started to take many fine art courses and joined groups of like minded painters. Federation of Canadian Artists courses as well as individual artist workshops , have been more or less on a continual basis with many different instructors and different art media. Watercolour was the first serious painting medium, but oil, and pastel are wonderful media I also work with. My work has been shown in many venues both private and public ,has won awards and sold  both in Canada and Internationally.  I also show work with the South Delta Artist Guild, the Federation of Canadian Artists and The Old School House Gallery in Qualicum Beach.

Artist societies I belong to include the South Delta Artists Guild , and the deCosmos art club in Parksville as well as being an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. I have taught adults and children in lower mainland communities for several years with classes covering everything from drawing to watercolour to clay.

Subject matter is varied and I draw inspiration from life’s daily experience whether hiking through trails or grocery shopping. Colour, light and texture surround us and I try to convey my inspiration and appreciation of the world in which we live.
