Born on the Canadian west coast I feel most at home when I am near the ocean. Having found my art passion early in life I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts, graduating in 1981. It wasn’t until 2007, after years of living abroad and raising our two kids, that I returned to painting full time.
Boats and rigging, flags and buoys, sailboats, docks and myth from under the sea are often found in my work. Reality is re-created in my bold and vibrant style.
Travelling has also played a huge part in shaping my perceptions. I have lived in Malaysia, Singapore, Texas, Newfoundland, Alberta; all have their own unique influence on my art.
Mixed media including acrylic, oil, wax, inks, markers and collage are always at my fingertips. My tools vary with scrapers, squeegees, feathers and chopsticks as I love to experiment.
