Painting has been my lifelong passion. My training as Interior Designer provided the opportunity to develop sketching skills and to explore different paint media. My profession allowed me to satisfy the desire to create. In 1999 I began to paint for my own pleasure. Since then I have attended many workshops here and abroad and participated in Plein Air painting excursions. As a past member of VAGA, TIARTS (Thousand Island Artists Association) and the Rideau Lakes Artists Association, I have participated in many art shows. I am a active member of TIFAA and the Fort Myers Beach Artists Association and participate in Plein Air and experimental art groups. My paintings are featured in homes in Ontario, in the US, in France and in Germany. My subjects vary from landscape to floral and figurative. I paint in oil and use mixed media for more abstract work. You can see my beautiful painting studio, inside and out, below, and under those photos, a selection of my recent paintings.
