Biography

Life is complicated and each day brings new challenges. In contrast, painting gives me a special comfort; an unique pleasure that invites and invigorates.

I use knife and brush on canvas and board to blend colour with passion, texture with movement, and simplicity with intrigue. Vibrant acrylics coupled with mixed media infuse each piece with personality and dimension.

My work reflects the value of the moment, the richness of nature, the power of imagery, and the joy of discovering hidden beauty. My hope is to connect with each viewer and share in the uncomplicated pleasure I receive from painting.

I reside in the beautiful city of Calgary, Alberta near the majestic Rocky Mountains with my husband and children.

When not painting, I may be found shuffling my three active children to the hockey rink, dance studio and places in between. I enjoy travelling, hiking and walking, spending time with family and friends, reading, and thinking about what next to paint.
