I was raised in Eastern Ontario.

I grew up in the countryside not far from Ottawa, Ontario.

From an early age, one of my favorite hobbies was to be painting or drawing.

I have always loved painting for as long as I can remember.

In high school, I took an art class, where I learned how to paint ceramics. And also learned more about painting landscapes.

Like most artists, my life took a different career path.

It wasn't until later in life that I took up painting again.

In 2017 I had health issues that limited by the ability to paint through a lot of work and determination. I got full use of my hand back.

Art is a Journey, not a destination. And this Journey has been an incredible adventure.

Discovering new materials to incorporate in my paintings, which colors I enjoy using the most.

Creating vibrant paintings makes my soul happy.

" I will create beauty, not perfection.

work that speaks to the soul and who I am called to be as an artist."
