I have been interested in art throughout my life: I took private lessons from Miss Topham-Brown as a teen, attended a year at Langara Art School and, later, did two years at Emily Carr School of Art and Design. My primary focus for a number of years was black-and-white photographic portraits.
After a career of over 25 years working within Community Mental Health in the Lower Mainland and in Squamish, I semi-retired six years ago and began to pursue my art once again. Now being fully retired (January 2016!) I am happy and excited to be able to focus full-time on my art. My preferred subject matter is Portraiture, and my preferred medium is Oil Paints (because they allow time for blending and have such a wonderful richness and radiance).
I am currently a member of The North Shore Artists Guild and an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists.
I am grateful to be living in this beautiful area of the world. I enjoy gardening, painting, cross-country skiing, sailing, kayaking, and hiking throughout the Howe Sound and the Sunshine Coast. But mostly painting!
