Retiring after 30 thirty years of working in General Insurance Ina decided to pursue a life-long interest in art and has many excellent instructors to thank for their encouragement.
While travelling across and photographing our beautiful Country, she found herself drawn to preserving the memories of our landscapes and its buildings in her paintings in either watercolour or acrylic.
From coast to coast, the Rocky Mountains, foothills, prairies with their unending plains
and aged wooden buildings, the rocky and wooded shorelines of the Great Lakes, the amazing stone work of the Rideau Canal, the Laurentians and streetscape of Old Quebec, the time worn fishing sheds of the Maritimes and the towering lighthouses of manyProvinces are all subjects she enjoys painting.
Our serene lakes interrupted by the magnificent call of the Loon and the rushing rivers with fish hurrying upstream to spawn, the beauty of nature's flora and fauna, aged rural barns, antique automobiles are other favourite subjects in her work.
Her paintings are in private collections in Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, California, Montana and Netherlands.
