I am a landscape painter, inspired by the beauty of the St. Lawrence River.
Exploring the Thousand Islands by boat opened up another world for me. The rugged beauty of the granite islands, the clear blue green water, and the ever changing light made me want to pick up a paintbrush long before I had the courage to do so.
Capturing nature's beauty is my quest and reinterpreting its
colour, light and composition on canvas is my ongoing passion and challenge.
My training as an Interior Designer provided the opportunity to develop sketching skills and to explore different paint media. I began to paint in 1999. Since then I have attended many workshops and participated in Plein Air painting excursions and competitions.
As a past member of VAGA (Visual Artists of Gananoque and Area), TIARTS (Thousand Islands Artist Association) and the Rideau Lakes Artist Association I have participated in many art shows. I am currently an active member of TIFAA (Thousand Islands Fine Art Association) and FMBAA (Fort Myers Beach Artist Association).
My preferred medium for landscapes and florals is oil. I use mixed media for my explorative work.
