Creating with my hands has been an integral part of my life from very early on. Always had a project on the go, crocheting or trying out elaborate baking recipes.I acquired my love of painting while taking a watercolor course with Karin Huehold ,so much fun. I have taken several workshops but mostly self taught. These days I still paint in watercolor as well as acrylic. The subjects I gravitate toward have plenty of light and dark patterns, mainly florals and landscapes.
I was born on a farm in northern Saskatchewan. My love for trees and scenery has drawn me into the art world. Click here to see my paintings.
For many years I found my creativity in photography which now inspires me to express myself in painting. I love the beauty in nature and in the gorgeous foothills where I live. When people view my paintings it is my hope they feel the same passion I do. Click here to see my paintings.
