I'm a self-taught professional artist living near Toronto, Ontario, Mom to four wonderful (if I do say so myself) adult children and wife to my university sweetheart. And don’t forget mom to a bunch of furry three and four legged critter-people who enrich our lives immeasurably.
I'm excited to paint land and sky scapes that make me feel rejuvenated and refreshed. They're an antidote to the many dark and dismal messages that are so prevalent everywhere I look on media. They're a reminder to me that life itself is a magnificent gift and I hope they can bring hope and joy to my collectors as well.
My work often expresses the energy, passion and power of equine subjects, finding a reflection of my own emotions and desire for freedom. Drawing and painting them raises me beyond my physical limitations and gives me the freedom to tangibly express the mysterious something within for which words are inadequate.
I currently work from a studio at home that occupies my round turret living room. My dream would be to have a little place in the countryside with a studio building on the property that I could open to visitors and guest artists for workshops and shows. What a lovely dream!
My artwork is in private collections in Canada and the United States of America.
