Artist Statement:

I cannot remember a time when I wasn’t drawing.  I’ve loved to draw and paint my whole life.  My father was very artistic and often had little contests between my sister and I.  He would give us various subjects to draw, and then would declare which was his favourite.  I owe my love of painting to him, along with much encouragement, love and support from both my parents.  I still use the easel my father built for me many years ago.

I’m inspired by the wonder of nature….sometimes I paint in a realistic style, re-creating scenery or a favourite pet, other times I’m caught in a wave of whimsy and let my mind and brush go wherever they wish.

There is an infinite supply of subject matter with our beautiful landscapes, animal life and flowers in abundance.  I try to bring that to life in my work.
