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
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.
