Born in Saskatoon, Sask. in minus 4o degree weather.  Moved to beautiful Victoria, B.C. almost immediately.  Loved the Pacific Ocean.  Loved art.  Moved to Toronto when turning 13.  Was fascinated by the Big City.  Used to go to All Night Sings at Massey Hall and later go for coffee in restaurants where the prostitutes gathered.  Attended A.Y. Jackson High School in North York.  A.Y. came to the opening of the school at 91 years of age. Upon finishing high school, I joined Creation 2 Theater Company.  
Met my husband there.  He later studied to become a minister and we, with our first son lived on the Six Nations Indian Reserve.
Upon his ordination, we moved to Sask.  It was there that I  studied art through the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina.
Later I completed a B.F.A. (Magna Cum Laude) at the University of Ottawa.
And since I have not reached perfection yet, I have been a practicing artist ever since.
