Drawing and painting have been part of my life since childhood, as has have hiking, paddling and gardening, which inspire those drawings and paintings to this day. I took workshops, courses, classes, where ever and whenever possible, during the years while raising my family, at the U of G, Georgian College, Ringling College in Sarasota , Fl, Visual Art Center in Punta Gorda , Fl, and with individual artsist such as Alan Flattmann in New Orleans, Albert Handell of New Mexico, Morgan Samuel Price , Fl, etc. My paintings have been in the Southampton Art Gallery , Southampton, Ont, for the past 10 years, and I have taught art workshops at the Southampton Art School for 14 years, including this summer and have taught art workshops for art groups in Brantford, Goderich, Waterloo, Guelph, Toronto area, Bruce Peninsula, etc. I have also painted many commissioned works of people, animals, homes, farms, in watercolour, soft pastels and oils. Creating a personal interpretation of a visual image that is somehow very meaningful to me, be it an emotional response of something long forgotten, or the way the light illuminates a shape, is what I love to do.
