My artistic development began early. I enjoyed designing and making clothes. My garden provided further design and creative opportunities. Colour, form and symmetry or asymmetry were fun to play with. I experimented with a wide variety of art mediums, from dry pastels to acrylic and everything in between. I now paint mostly with acrylic, but enjoy using watercolour and alcohol inks when appropriate.
My progress as an artist provided opportunities to paint a wide range of subjects. I have settled on mostly landscapes, however I do get drawn back to other subjects. Workshops and courses help me improve techniques as well as meeting and learning from other artists along the way. Mentorship from a number of wonderful artists through the Manotick Art Association and involvement in an open studio have been my primary motivators and I am very grateful to them for their encouragement.
