I am a contemporary abstract artist who works in mixed media and is self taught.
My love of colour, shape, mark making and design has taken me into the world of fashion design and production and now painting. Originally from Southern Ontario, Canada, I have been living in Abbotsford, BC (just outside Vancouver, BC) for 16 years after spending many years in Calgary, Alberta After a career in social work and raising my 2 daughters I could no longer resist the urge to create.
It had been with me my whole life and in February 2020 during the Covid lockdown it once again emerged. It is this artform where I can use my imagination to portray a visual expression of my deepest feelings and emotions which I find very healing and therapeutic. I am inspired by nature – the mountains and ocean of the west coast of Canada fascinate me.
