My high school experience was not complete until I walked into the art room and found it was there that my world made sense.

The mystery of colour, paint, lines and texture resonated with something deep inside of me and I finally felt I could communicate what I was feeling.

“I Have Spoken” acrylic, 20″ x 24″

 

Years later, after my kids were mostly grown and independent, I became aware of the deep need to express myself again—with paint. I started taking art classes through Chinook Learning. I was hooked. Immediately. This led to many more in-person and online courses as I fully embraced the opportunity to learn more about my passion.

I love, love colour, vibrant and dramatic colour!

“Between the Lines” acrylic, 20″ x 24″

 

From my perspective, it is one of the best qualities of my work. I have chosen acrylic as my preferred medium because I can work “fast and furiously” with it. Its quick drying time allows me to add layer upon layer as I paint a new conversation on canvas.

As a fresh work comes to life under my brushes, I enjoy the excitement and anticipation it brings!

“Color Me Beautiful” acrylic, 20″ x 24″

 

Every painting is a journey of discovery. Whether I am capturing the light reflecting in our garden or conveying the elegance of a bloom, my aim is to communicate the emotion of the moment. I want the story I am telling to be as engaging to my audience as it is to me.

I have also enjoyed mentoring individuals and instructing small groups of budding artists. I have been thrilled to watch as they take courage to place paint on canvas!

My goal is to continue to develop my art as a loose and painterly expression of the world I encounter.

  1. Just love your work! The colors & three dimension quality of the flowers are perfect.

  2. Cosmas makunde says

    Joyful flowing fluidity in capturing the definite and elusive transition of immediacy stretching beyond and within a blink. Seeing is barēly hazy but communicative. A marvel of an eye that sees.
