I am grateful to see beauty and inspiration all around me and find joy in expressing what I see in paint. Painting becomes even more fun for me when my work brings a connection or inspiration to others. I aim to connect through an honest portrayal of life, the joys of nature or at times, the deeper musings that need space to be expressed.
While I was born and raised on the Canadian prairies I now find my home in the mountains of BC. My husband George and I raised our young family of 3 in Fernie for 16 years and have since settled for the past 18 years in the Okanagan community of Penticton.
Over the years I have been influenced by the instruction of a number of wonderful artists and have always known one day I would focus my time and attention on painting......that day has finally come! Currently I have a studio space at Martin Street Art and Music Gallery and am thankful for the mentoring I receive there from Kindrie Grove and Reneé Mattheson. The subjects of my painting I find in the things I care about; Faith, family and friends, people, justice and the environment. Please enjoy a browse through my artwork or come and visit at my studio.
