I am a Canadian artist, born in Toronto, ON.  While I am self taught with no formal art education, I do come from a long line of artists.  I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. 

I started my art career in graphite and still love the strong values of light and shadow, the drama of a black and white image.  In watercolour and acrylic I like building the painting up with multiple washy, glazy layers of colour.  One  colour on top of another... allowing the white of the paper to shine through in the lighter areas.  I discovered coloured pencil in the 90's and it satisfies my craving for capturing every minute detail!  While coloured pencil on it's own is very time consuming, I found that using several mediums together can speed things up considerably, creating mixed medium. 

I offer classes in the different mediums and I also take commissions.  Contact me for more information.

I am currently a member of Colored Pencil Society of America, Kitchener Waterloo Society of Artists, Uptown Gallery Waterloo and Wellington Artists
