I love painting. I love colour. I love design.


I have been a self-taught artist all my life, but often ‘life got in the way’. In the last 4 years, I decided to dedicate more time to my ‘artist life’, and my move to Prince Edward County supported that – by teaching painting classes at Baxter Art Centre, building a new studio, and connecting to the County’s diverse arts community (including Blizzmax Gallery, Art in the County, the Contemporary Show, and the Local Store). I feel fortunate to have a good work ethic combined with endless creativity and imagination, so am able to paint in any style I choose. I make art a priority now, and dedicate time to thinking about new ideas, approaches, images and themes. I love my life!
