Biography


Growing up on the Alberta Prairies was the beginning of a close connection to nature, leading to the fun of capturing 
nature on canvas, for Lyla.
 
Art appreciation at the one room country school she attended was a small packet of postcard paintings of the noted Canadian "Group of Seven" artists. A.Y. Jackson was her favorite. Thus was the beginning of her artistic journey
with the encouragement of a teacher and her mother.  She, many years later did meet A. Y. Jackson at Port Radium, NWT, Canada. He was there on a plein air excursion.
 
Retiring from a Nursing Career allowed time to return to painting after many years of setting it aside. Joining Evergreen Association of Fine Arts was a turning point in finally getting back to painting.
