Drawing, and painting were favorite childhood activities and a lifelong interest. Since retiring from a long career in education I’ve returned to this relaxing and enjoyable past time.
I am mainly a self-taught painter but have participated in several week long workshops at the Blue Mountain School for Watercolour Painters in Collingwood Ontario as well as at the University of Western Ontario. It was during an art course at the University of Western Ontario that I was introduced to acrylics and abstract art. I fell in love with this vibrant medium along with the freedom of abstract representation. So for the past three years I have been working primarily in acrylics.
Every day is an adventure in my incipient artistic journey as I experiment with techniques, and products as well as learn from other artists and books. Painting has given me many happy hours as I discover new ways to express myself.
I am a long time resident of Huron County and live on a farm outside of Seaforth, with my husband Harold, two dogs and one unusual cat.
