I am an abstract artist living currently in Victoria, BC and working from my home studio. I worked at Rock Bay Square in Victoria for 6 years before moving my studio home.
I began my art career many years ago while living in the Mountains of British Columbia. I took a watercolour course and I was hooked. When we moved to Victoria in 1983 I signed up for a drawing class at Victoria College of art and that fall I went to the college full-time in the foundations course. I then went on to camosun college where I took the Visual Arts Program and loved every minute of it.
I then stepped away from making art due to family obligations and commitments. I purchased an Art Gallery in 1988 and for 12 years I was working in that gallery and another that I purchased. I loved supporting the artists and being in touch with so many people who love art.
In 1999 I sold Out of Hand and my husband and I went on a trip around the world. We travelled for 7 months seeing many wonderful sites and meeting loads of interesting people. I have had the priviledge to travel to many parts of the world and next to art travel is my second passion.
On our return I started doing clay and sculpture and then returned to painting. In 2oo2 my husband and I moved to Nova Scotia to help with his mother. We initially set up our life in Halifax but then decided to relocate to an area near Wolfville called Hantsport. I was lucky to have a huge studio there which allowed me to do workshops with people and I realized I loved teaching. I also exhibited in local exhibitions at Acadia University and several other local venues. In 2009 my husband and I moved down the valley to Annapolis Royal. Annapolis is an art town and I fit right in. I was on the board of the Arts Council on the grants committee. I exhibited locally and then was accepted to the Art Sales and Rental in Halifax at the main Gallery.
In 2012 we moved back to victoria so we could be near our family again. i have been involved in several group and solo shows.
