Growing up in a family that loved the outdoors, animals and the water, I have continued those passions in my adult life. I focus a lot of my art on the unlimited amount of beauty found in nature and what surrounds me and I paint whatever makes me happy.
Pursuing Photography in college and then owning a professional photography studio in Belleville, ON for many years taught me to focus on composition, light and colour. I have captured many beautiful photographs in my travels that are now my muse for painting.
I am a mostly self-taught artist who paints mainly in acrylic but love to experiment with any medium that I find exciting. I love the challenge of learning a new technique or style, using a different colour pallet or subject. I also love that I will never run out of those things.
I am an active member of the Rideau Lakes Artists' Association and the Smiths Falls Arts and Culture Council. I participate in as many local area art shows as possible and show my work at some of the many Rideau Lakes Artists’ Association’s venues. I also welcome pet and landscape commissions.
My website has some of both my original paintings and my photography. Enjoy browsing.
