I was born on the foggy coast of the Bay of Fundy in Saint John, New Brunswick. I continue to be influenced from my yearly visits to the east coast, and often paint scenes with water and sky. As I expanded my travels and art courses, I often did sketches and watercolor studies to keep me ready for the next new paintings. I enjoy oils predominately for its range of color mixtures that I continue to explore. I have learned to work with some different mediums and have completed some other paintings with watercolor, chalk pastel, acrylics and recently printmaking from linocuts and plexiglass. With so many workshops out there, it’s exciting to have another option to express oneself in art. I am also a member of many local Art Associations, Art Lending of Ottawa, the Glebe Art Tour and have helped organize shows like the Glebe Fine Art Show.
Exhibits and galleries that I have shown include the Old Chelsea galleries( Québec); the Visual Art Centre in Orleans(Art East Association); North Gloucester Library; the Ottawa Tulip Festival; the Gloucester Art Gallery( Arts Ottawa East); Francesco’s Coffee Company; Shenkman Gallery ( Art East); MIFO Gallery; Farina’s Restaurant & Gallery; Irene’s Pub; the Ottawa Little Theatre(monthly, Ottawa Art Association); Ben Franklin Place ( Nepean Fine Arts League); Bluebird Coffee & Gallery( March 2016; Glebe Fine Art Show and Plant Bath( West Carleton Art Association).
