Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist
Growing up on a farm in southern Ontario, I was encouraged to experiment with oils and watercolours. I now paint primarily in acrylics. I began private instruction with Doolee McDonnell, a Kootenay artist, and have taken courses at Emily Carr University, Langara College, the Vancouver Academy of Art, the Holland/Croft Studio and the Federation of Canadian Artists. Most recently, I was fortunate to study at a week long workshop with Robert Bateman. I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, a member of the Suite E Life Drawing Society and the Port Moody Art Association. I work primarily in acrylic and watercolours. My art has evolved with experience. My challenge is to create paintings that capture the many mysteries of this beautiful planet.

Samples of my work
As can be seen from my work, I try to capture the ephemeral interaction between the natural world and the organisms within it. For this exhibition, I wanted to capture both the hope and the horror. The hope that we will act together to preserve these marvelous creatures and preserve our climate, and the horror of what will happen if we don’t. I used a background of orange to signify both hope and urgency.
