My first introduction to the formal elements of art was in the Design Arts program at Georgian College in Owen Sound. I continued to pursue my interest in art at McMaster University in the Art History programme after moving with my husband and two children to Oakville. Subsequently I have taken several courses and workshops, including Figure Drawing, Painting and Portraits at Sheridan College.

I paint in a semiabstract style using either oil or acrylic. Some paintings are done intuitively, while others are more carefully planned. I like my paintings to be accessible while also having some degree of ambiguity.
