Iíve painted for more than thirty years and watercolours for the last twenty six years. The luminosity and flow of the medium fascinated me. Painting allows me to communicate in a way that is nonverbal. Art is a passion thatís never satisfied because there is always the next painting that holds the promise of success or failure. For me painting is a way to explore both the physical and spiritual world. My art education includes artists from Canada: Allisandra Bitelli, Carl Koger and Rita Edwards. From the US: Linda Doll and Alex Powers. Art awards include: Saanich Peninsula Arts & Crafts, jurorís choice, Sooke Fine Arts, purchase awards and peopleís choice awards and Federation Of Canadian Artists Victoria Chapter, honourable mention. I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artist, Comox Valley Chapter, Comox Valley Arts Council and the Pearl Ellis Gallery. My subject matter is varied. I started painting children at play in January 2005 in the series I call Fairies Live Here. In these paintings I am working to capture the exuberance and innocence of childhood. I also paint cattle, flowers, birds and landscapes. The landscapes often include flowers or water. Upcoming shows include: Originals Only in Comox, Artsfest in Nanaimo and Artisans Festival Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens in Courtenay.
