Art has been central to my life for 40 years. Graduating with a degree in Fine Art, followed by an education degree, teaching art to high school students and adults, as well as making, exhibiting and selling art has been a path which took many turns. Watercolours, acrylics, drawing and now mixed media have been the branches in this road of development and growth. My husband, our three children and I survived the designing and building of our home on the Gatineau River. We love being outdoors. Snowboarding, hiking, biking, sailing and gardening are some activities I enjoy.

Seeking a different artistic challenge and a more exciting process, I now experiment with a layering approach which is both stimulating and difficult as each piece evolves without a preconceived result in mind. The richness of colour and texture is magical. My subject matter evokes memories of the places to which I have traveled. 
This quote has given me inspiration. “Be in awe of yourself as a genius creative force in the universe, having magic in your hands, fashioning a new world that awaits your presence to bring it forward. ’Peter London: 
No More Second Hand Paintings’
