About Me

How I got here


Growing up in Ontario and spending every summer at a lake fostered my love of animals and nature in general. 

Photography developed my eye for composition and lighting and led to an appreciation of art and a desire to paint. 

Being fortunate enough to live in a thriving arts community in Muskoka fuels my inspiration. I’m grateful for the support
I receive from family and friends and that I finally listened to the voice in my heart rather than my head and started creating! 

My experience


Initially self-taught,  I later attended the AGO for their drawing and painting courses, before meeting a wonderful mentor who's guidance took my art to the next level.

A fabulous art retreat in France in 2015 provided the experience of painting with wonderful artists from all over the world. 

My art is now entered in juried shows and I have the pleasure of seeing it displayed (and selling) in Auburn Gallery in Muskoka. 

My vision


I just need to paint! 

I want to express  my passion through painting.

My hope is  that my art stirs emotion and memories that bring enjoyment to the viewer.  


Society For International Hockey Research


In May 2018 I displayed my '72 Series of hockey paintings at the General Meeting of this group of hockey writers and historians in Parry Sound, Ontario.  It was a lot of fun to share my experience painting this series with people who relate to my passion.
