I have been a visual artist since my childhood on Vancouver Island. I express myself through painting, pastel drawing and printmaking. I am a graduate of Emily Carr University in Vancouver and I have degrees from UBC in Studio Arts and in Art Education. I have taught art in the schools, prisons and community centres. I have had solo shows of my work and I continue to exhibit in juried group shows within Greater Vancouver and on Vancouver Island.
My art genres are portraiture, botanicals, landscapes and abstracts.
The presentation of work on this site is a collection of landscapes that I think of as “Edge of Wilderness.” These places are where the edge of humanity (where I feel socially comfortable), abuts the edge of nature (where I feel spiritually comfortable). It is from here that I enjoy drawing my energy to create.
