A long time South Surrey, White Rock resident and local artist, she has always incorporated art and creativity into her activities whether in painting, crafts, cooking or gardening.
She has always had an affinity with nature and this is reflected in her art expressions.
Her early years were spent in the Okanagan, swimming at the lake, spending time in the forest, hiking and enjoying nature. These activities made her a hiker, skier and camper.
As a result her art is a reflection of these experiences. Having retired recently as a math educator, and with more time available, painting has become a passion.
She is a member of the White Rock South Surrey Art Society, Semiahmoo Arts, ArtsCan and the Federation of Artists. Her active involvement with these organizations has given her inspiration to try many different styles and mediums and to explore works from landscapes to abstracts.
She works mainly with acrylics and at times uses textured mediums to create a more 3 dimensional effect.
“I am always looking to learn from others and recently travelled to France to paint. Curiosity and being a constant learner is a large part of my process. The best part is sharing my joy and vision of art with others.”
