Artist's Statement


Painting is one of my greatest joys!  The process of making paintings is an ongoing learning challenge for all artists, with each day's work differing from the previous one.  I am so blessed to be able to engage in this wonderful activity  and thank my lucky stars for all the terrific artists who share this pilgrimage with me.

But my greatest joy is teaching.  Nothing surpasses the magical, exciting and often surprising results of painters using tried and true techniques married with an artist's enthusiasm and willingness to 'risk'.  I am thrilled when emerging artists allow me to accompany them on their artistic journeys; sharing techniques, new ideas and celebrating their successes.  I learn so much from and am constantly inspired by my students.

As a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists I have been able to further hone my skills by attending their  workshops and exhibiting my paintings in their Granville Island Gallery.
