Biography:
 I have been intrigued with creating with paint since early childhood when I would spend hours sitting up on my dresser with the big round mirror and painting my face over and over in all patterns and designs and constantly creating art. My childhood medium was simple watercolors and my face was my first canvas. Not surprising, portraits have become one of my great loves in my second childhood.

Throughout the past thirty years, while working full time and raising my family, I was constantly enrolled in workshops and courses honing my artistic skills and knowledge of landscapes, seascapes and portraiture. I have painted with oils and acrylic and produced paintings using French dyes on silk and enjoyed the magic of the airbrush.
I have had the great pleasure of working with many excellent artists, all of whom had distinct wonderful styles and talents. Like a butterfly I moved thru the art world around me, studying, learning, sampling and finally emerging into my own style and focus. I have sold many contract paintings over the years and have just recently stepped out into the larger art community via my acceptance as an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.

Having recently ended my working career I have now entered the 'refreshment years' of my life where my passion to paint now has free reign. The artist in me has now stepped forward holding the reins of my life and I am excited to see what creative wonders I shall produce.

Someone once said, that creativity is God's gift to you…what you do with it is your gift to God. I honor that along with knowing that it truly is a greater reward to give then receive. Therefore, I do not paint objects, rather I focus on painting that which is loved by myself or others. My painting passion explodes when I work on a painting that I know will be personally cherished. No book, lesson or workshop has ever brought forward the creative passion that lies within me and that surfaces when I paint a picture of love for someone, be it a home, a person, a pet, a view. Watching their faces when presented with a painting of their love, is the greatest reward of all!

I plan on spending the rest of my life simply enjoying, discovering, expanding and playing with the creative artist within me. She has now arrived.
