My studies in art have taken me to Banff, Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridge, Victoria, B.C.; Ottawa, Ontario; Whittier, California; and Red Deer College. Since I received my BFA at Lethbridge I have been involved in ceramics and monoprinting, drawing and painting. My day jobs have been clerical and daycare but art has always been pulling me back. I also spent 14 years helping to build and sail a 36’ sloop yacht, so much of my inspiration has a marine basis. I also have a passion for the human face and have ventured into portraiture. I plan to take further studies in printmaking by purchasing an etching press and working to my heart’s content.

I've always enjoyed drawing, and growing up on a prairie farm increased my observational skills in the colourful world of nature. The variable weather with each passing season brought a kaleidoscope of colours from spring time greens and pink blossoms to fall’s sparkling yellows, golds and dusty greens. The joy of watching a sunrise or sunset still holds wonder; and the changing seasons always bring promise for new pictures to paint.
I am a self taught artist from Brooks, Alberta, working in oil, Acrylic, Pen,Pencil and charcoal. I do commissioned portraits in any medium, of animals, Pets, and of course people. Wildlife and Western art subjects have become a passion for me to study, and paint.

The importance of friendship, respect for nature, my love for animals, observing peoples body language, shapes and expression are all things that will keep me wanting to paint or sculpt it. The stories and the images in my head are of figures , flowers, landscapes, animals and are reflections of my thought process.
