I am a long time resident of Tsawwassen, originally from Vancouver. I am now retired following rewarding careers in both nursing and personal training. I enjoy time spent with nature, both in my garden at home and at the family lakefront cabin at Shawnigan Lake in the summer. I love to dance too! I paint the seas, the lakes, and the flowers of nature. My inspiration comes from the interesting lines, shapes, colours, and light in the world around me. I create my art in my home studio with acrylic paint on canvas along with some inspiring music. I work in the moment enjoying the place where time stands still. My passion is to create art that speaks to the heart and the soul. I strive to evoke feelings of peace, joy, and hope to inspire the viewer to not only see the beauty in art, but also feels the emotion. My desire is that my art entices the viewer to explore and not only to see, but to feel the hope and beauty within.
