About Me

I was born and raised in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Growing up in such an incredible environment, I was constanly stimulated by nature. I took art courses at the Banff Center during high school and attended the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson B.C. after high school. I later moved to the oil sands town of Ft. McMurray with my husband. There I did drawings and paintings of the 'old and the new'; trapper's cabins and bucket wheels, steamboats and 5 ton trucks. My work was purchased by such companies as Syncrude Canada and Redwood Ready Mix.  

 My husband and I moved to a farm in Northern Alberta and the next few years were spend raising 3 daughters and living the farm life. I never completedly stopped drawing and painting but my time for it became limited. Life brought me to a point where I was raising my girls myself and we eventually ended up in the Ottawa valley in Ontario. Having raised my daughters, I  am now a grandmother and a full-time artist.

 

 

 

Why Do I Paint?

I ask myself this, especially when I am frustrated. On the whole it makes me happy. There are so many wonderful things I see each day that I will never have time to paint them all. I want to share these things.

My work is realistic but not photographic, I want the viewer to recognize what they are looking at. At the same time I feel I am sharing a bit of my soul. I hope the viewer will experience an emotion as well.

Sometimes I am in a part of the wilderness that many people may not have the opportunity to see, such as the Canadian North. At these times I think it is important to express the value of our wilderness so we will take care of it and preserve it.
