I have always been interested in art. From a young age I always liked to draw. My mother weas an artist and taught me the basics of painting landscapes. I enjoyed all the art classes in school as I could. I wanted to attend Ontario College of Art when I graduated high school, but felt I wasn't " good enough " to make a living with art.

I went with my second choice and became a registered nurse. I married, had four children lived on a farm and worked as a nurse. You can understand that left little time for art. As my children grew up ,I had more time for art and enjoyed taking local classes in acrylic and watercolour painting, learning and developing my abilities further.

Now retired I find inspiration everywhere I look, especially on my travels. I hope you enjoy my at work.
