I have been crafting through out my life. You never know what I will have as I'm always working on something new. I do all types of needlework; sewing, quilting, knitting , crocheting and many other needle works.
I came from the big city to live at my home in Ompah in the late 1970’s. Before coming here I had done a great deal of craft work, and received one year of formal art training at the New School of Art in Toronto. I have been painting ever since, and have tried out most mediums, and taken many workshops to learn about different techniques and approaches to visual art.
I consider myself to be primarily a water-colourist, and I will always love painting in that medium. In recent years, however, I have done a great deal of work in acrylics, and am also beginning to incorporated collage and multimedia techniques into my work.
My subject matter usually involves landscapes and gardenscapes, and I find lots of inspiration in my beautiful North Frontenac surroundings. I am increasingly interested in incorporating human figures into my work.

Recently retired, I am privileged to now be a permanent resident on Palmerston Lake. After many years as a mother with a busy career, I now have time to restart my artistic journey and focus on my love of painting and drawing.
In this, my first show, you will see acrylic and water colour paintings dealing with a variety of subject matter including landscape, still life and the human figure. My goal is to explore new ways of engaging with traditional subject matter and I tend toward abstraction rather than realism. My work uses high value contrast and bold brushwork.
