Born in New Westminster BC I have lived, worked and travelled in BC, Europe, and Australia, and travelled the United States, New Zealand, Scotland, England, Ireland, Hawaii, Fiji and Japan.
Three years Vancouver School of Art (now called the Emily Carr University of Art and Design), majoring in painting and sculpture.
Helen Pitt Fund for Fine Arts, 1972, declined – had moved to Australia.
I work in a variety of media: acrylic paint, ink, conte, oil stick, charcoal, photos, clay, wood, stone and mixed media.
My work is figurative and nature based. Ideas develop from travel, outdoor activities, and everyday experiences. These inspirations come together over time and often repeat. Evolving themes continue to present themselves.
I have lived and worked in Surrey BC on an organic farm for 36 years and now live in a subdivision with Morningside Creek on the east and Bear Creek on the west with nature around us.
For over 30 years I worked as a Docent at the Surrey Art Gallery, doing tours of the Exhibitions to Elementary and High School students and adult groups. I am a founding and board member of the Surrey Art Gallery Association, and a member of the Brass Band Art Group. When asked how long I have been an artist I reply, “all my life”. This is a part of who I am and always with me.
