I am a self - taught artist with an appreciation for the traditional representational style. I have done Solo Shows around the Central Okanagan through Artscape over the last 3 years of which I am actively still doing. I have a love for nature and travelling outdoors looking for unusual and interesting trees, shadows, and light in nature. I do studies in pencil, pastel taking notes of time of day my direction of light etc. before taking photos of my subject, and the place around my subject. To feel the rythme, the mood and to gather a feeling of the subject .Later I take my sketches, my notes, and my photos back to the studio to begin the larger painting.
Raised in Santa Clara, California, our family spent many summers travelling to the Canadian praires stopping in places like Yosemite , Yellowstone, Banff and Saskatchewan to name a few. I took an interest of the many types of landscapes at an early age and I can remember my fascination for a Robert Wood painting my parents had bought. Eventually we moved to Canada where I finished the rest of my school years drawing on tables and binders. Music was my thing and spent many hours learning the accordian and the guitar. I worked in various fabrication industries where I had to visualize the end result of a project. I was 23 when I became injured on a jobsite that left me with a back injury and so going outdoors has my limits these days. I Take with me just the basics that I need .I volunteered and worked for the Saskatchewan Research Council and spent time doing environmental impact assesment up at Waterbury lake and Northern Saskatchewan. Later in life I began working for my Mother as a home care aide for seniors. Always inspired by painter Bob Ross I began to dabble in painting part time in 2004. It was at a time in my life that I was going through physical and emotional challenges. I have lived in places like Victoria, Saskatoon ,and Montreal with each city comes their ways, and culture.I love conservation, geography,ecology and especially wildlife. Painting is a poetry and became a passion and a way to escape the things that burden me. Trees and rocks are extraordinary obstacles of their own in which the river winds its way through the valley like a person's life winding through time. I like my paintings to represent the many shapes, colors and forms that our land projects. I like using acrylics for its diversity but play with other mediums as well. I continure to develope in my own style and paint with both pallette knife and brush. Nature is not only a special place for me where my thoughts and dreams transpire on to canvas but a way for my mind and body to heal as well. Each painting is a one of a kind landscape of real places from photo, memory , drawings or from my own imagination a vision of a place with a special feeling unfolding on to canvas with each brush stroke.

I belong to 5 groups in Faa and participate in contests held by groups in Faa.
From time to time you can see my work up at the Okanagan libraries.
