Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, my greatest pleasure is creating abstract inspired by reality. My love of blues and greens comes from my fascination with the ocean and sky and while I experiment with all colours, I return time and time again to these colours of nature.
Colours and shapes are my triggers. I see beautiful objects of nature and want to capture the feelings that I had when I saw them. I want people to be intrigued by my art and be drawn in by it. I love to experiment with gel mediums and just about anything to add texture and interest.
I am self taught and have taken numerous workshops, including mixed media, water colour pencils, printmaking and encaustic.
I am presently the Shows Director of the West Carleton Arts Society. Previously I was on the executive of the Nepean Fine Arts League for 9 years, 3 of which were as President, and part of the Richmond Village Art Club (as President).
