Art and creativity have always been central in my life, beginning in grade school and continuing in university.  I completed a BEd in 1996, double major in English and Visual Arts. I taught Middle School for several years, leaving teaching to raise our son.  Photography has been a creative outlet for me for many years, taking photos of my travels, originally with film then later with digital. About 5 years ago, I decided to try a painting class to re-spark my creative juices, and I’ve been painting in acrylics ever since.
I consider myself to be a “beginner”, as I’m always learning something every time I pick up my brush. I tend to ‘fall down the rabbit hole”of subject matters that intrigue me, often creating several related paintings, before a new idea piques my interest.
I like using bright colours and enjoy the challenge of capturing light and reflections on water, and the complexity of painting bicycles.
I have lived, studied, or worked all across Canada, including Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Yukon, and Quebec. And if you include the places I’ve visited, I’ve set foot in all but one province and two territories. I currently live in Ottawa, Ontario, with my husband and son.
