I was born and raised in Newfoundland, which instilled an early appreciation of all that nature offers. I’ve always had a keen interest in hand crafting and enjoyed trying new art projects. We lived and traveled in most regions of Canada. We spent four and a half years in Germany, and as a result, discovered and was given the opportunity to try many different art forms.
I started painting in 1986 in Alberta with a very talented local artist. With her help, I gained the confidence to continue this art form. I stopped for a few years because of work commitments and then started painting again when we arrived in Nova Scotia in 1998. Since then, I have painted with local artists, the Annapolis Valley Decorative Artists, and the Artists Circle. Medium: Oil and acrylics.
