I paint for the sheer joy of painting. I strive to create a unique vision of the world through my vision, talent, imagination and painting method.

The magic of light provides my inspiration and joy. But the flipside of joy is sadness and I am dismayed to see the Earth being so rapidly degraded. I paint in part to remind us we need to hang on to the wonderful world we live in.

I won prizes for painting and drawing as a child, but life "happened" and I was in my early 40s before I found time to seriously pick up the pencil and brush again.

Since my first painting class, I have never looked back, and my interests led me to a Bachelor of Fine Arts at University of Victoria.

I am an Active Member of the Canadian Federation of Artists, the Saanich Peninsula Plein Aire Painters, the Jasper Artists Guild and a founder of the Broadmead Studio Tour.

My paintings are in many Canadian and foreign collections and I have won awards at the local, regional and provincial levels.
